Camden is changing on the inside to make life better for everyone. Because we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. We have an exciting opportunity available for a Communications Assistant to join our dynamic communications team in North London Waste Authority (NLWA). 

The role

In this role you will be providing communications and administrative support to enable the successful delivery of our communications strategy which includes proactive PR, social media activity, campaigns, design and print and internal communications. This is a multi-faceted, exciting position for someone who enjoys a fast-paced creative environment with the opportunity to input ideas in a busy communications team. 

As part of this role you will be providing support on the day to day running of NLWA’s social media accounts (@connectNLWA) to help deliver both organic content and paid-for campaigns. You will also help maintain the NLWA press release schedule, playing a supporting role in ensuring that press targets are met each week, writing and editing high-quality pro-active press releases and monitoring and providing regular reports on media and social media coverage. 

You will be based at NLWA’s office in Tottenham Hale but may be required to visit other locations in north London for example to provide support for communications meetings with the seven north London boroughs. Remote working options will also be available. 

About you

Experience of using social media in a communications setting is a must for this position, as well as excellent verbal and written communications skills. 

You should demonstrate good attention to detail and a drive to develop and learn within a small but busy communications team. 

Demonstrably good organisational skills and an ability to manage often conflicting demands and prioritise accordingly are also essential, as well as having an ability to maintain a wide range of record keeping, both computerised and manual. 

If you can also work to the highest standards, demonstrating resilience to pressure and retaining due professionalism at all times then this job is for you. 

We’re ready to welcome your ideas, your views, and your rebellious spirit. Help us redefine our corporate services, and we’ll redefine what a career can be.
