A Head of Communications acts as the lead in all external and internal communications related activity of a company. Primarily this involves developing their strategic communications plan to align with company projections to contribute to the creation of a competitive and strong brand. The communication strategy will need to be in line with the company message. It is a senior business role which is ideally suited for someone with corporate and internal communications experience - normally around 10 years - and a proven ability to manage departments and people effectively. This position is demanding and requires the ability to manage partner relationships as well as seeking out new opportunities and building strategic networks, in order to improve existing company communications strategies. Moreover, it requires an influential and charismatic individual who can not only devise and develop future initiatives but can see these through, whilst inspiring their team and managing communications programs in an international context.
