Media & Communications Specialist

Fixed Term 2 years 

Exciting changes are happening in the district, including rapid expansion in the number of homes and jobs – our new Garden Town will deliver up to 10,000 new homes and land for business use over the next 30 years.

As part of a creative and talented team, you will play a key role in developing and delivering communications that promote the council’s activities and its ambitious corporate plan, as well as promoting Folkestone & Hythe as the place to live, visit, work and invest.

You will need to come from a solid communications background, experienced in media relations as well as producing creative and outcome focused communications. You’ll have a flair for social media and all forms of digital marketing. But above all else, if you’ve got first-class communication and interpersonal skills, can operate on your own initiative to identify key messages or potential reputational risks, and the ability to deliver campaign and marketing strategies across all forms of media, then we want to hear from you.

For an informal discussion please contact Jane Walker, Senior Communications and Engagement Specialist at to arrange a suitable time.
