Communications, Press and Media
In Cape Town last summer, the British Prime Minister made a new and distinctive offer for the UK to work alongside, invest in and partner with African nations to deliver more opportunities, more jobs and greater stability – both in the UK and across Sub-Saharan Africa.
To deliver these new partnerships, HMG (Her Majesty's Government) is rebooting its ability to deliver creative communication campaigns across the continent, with the launch of the Africa Campaigns Hub – and we are looking for an ambitious, talented and motivated campaign planning assistant to join this new team.
The Africa Campaigns Hub will be a team of 14 communications specialists split between London, Pretoria, Nairobi and Abuja, designing and delivering creative communications campaigns.
This role will be based in the British High Commission in Pretoria, working closely with and complementing the existing HMG communicators network across Sub-Saharan Africa.
The core team in Pretoria – with regional campaign support in Abuja and Nairobi – will bring specialist skills in campaign delivery, strategic communication, digital, insight, monitoring and evaluation to the network.
Working directly to the Campaigns Manager, you will be supporting the Campaigns Hub in bringing these skills together to develop and deliver pan-African campaigns.
You will be enthusiastic and proactive; have excellent organisational skills and a broad understanding of how media and digital channels can be used to reach and influence audiences; and be a team-player with a passion for developing your campaign planning skills.
