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 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 a confident, energetic and creative digital communications professional, with knowledge of social media and digital production to join this new team in Pretoria.
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 Head of Digital, you will be responsible for developing and producing high-quality, engaging digital content for pan-African, regional and local communication campaigns.
The successful candidate will also provide input into campaign planning to ensure content is planned, designed and developed in a strategic manner taking into account platforms, target audiences and objectives.
You will be enthusiastic and proactive; confident in digital and creative content production; and an effective communicator with experience in delivering high-quality work to deadlines.
You should also expect to travel, across the region and to the UK.
