We’re looking for a brilliant communications officer to help us shout from the rooftops about what a great organisation Futures is. Focusing on promoting us and our work to external stakeholders and the media, you’ll need to be a true team player too, someone who can get stuck in and help with team-wide projects too. And please don’t apply if you’re not at ease working in the digital domain.
Your work will excite and inspire others and bring our passion for providing ‘Great Places’, ‘Great Services’ and ‘Great Tomorrows’ to life. You will also need to be able to bring fresh and creative ideas into play to inform and engage the people we work with.
You’ll need to have proven experience of getting eye-catching content into the media and enjoy juggling multiple projects, write like a pro, spot a typo from 100 metres and be comfortable experimenting with new tools and techniques. You will also need a keen eye for what’s going on in the housing, policy and political world.
If you can also take a great photo or have strong skills in video production you’ll have plenty of opportunity to put those skills to use as well.
This is a rewarding, fun and varied role within a friendly, innovative and growing organisation that’s adding huge social value to families and communities across the East Midlands.
That sounds like me. What can you offer?
If you’re successful, you’ll be joining a dynamic organisation with an amazing culture. We offer competitive benefits that include agile working, mileage, private healthcare options, discount schemes and with a big emphasis on health and well-being. You’ll also have great opportunities to grow and develop, personally and professionally, but the greatest reward will be knowing you’re helping people and communities across our region to thrive.
It’s an exciting time of change at Futures Housing Group! We’ve just moved to a state-of-the-art, flexible new workspace so you’ll have both great people and a great environment around you. We’ll also provide you with an agile kit and access to Touchdown Points where you can plug in to a workstation, catch up with colleagues and attend local meetings.
We’ve recently signed up to Harry’s Pledge, a campaign to support people who are working but also looking after a friend or family member who needs extra help. We know balancing work and caring is tough and that’s why we have an extra focus on supporting team members in this situation. To help, we organise regular virtual support groups, have an Employee Assistance Scheme with 24/7 counselling, and offer Flexible Working from day one, helping you to stay happy at work and at home.
This year we’ve been awarded the coveted Investor in People Platinum award – the highest of IiP accreditation. The award recognises organisations which are passionate about making sure all employees get the best experience at work.
