Job Description

What is the purpose of this role?

Our client is currently seeking a hands-on Campaign Manager to work for the UK's largest water and Wastewater Company on a contract basis until end of March 2018.

Forming part of their Strategy & Regulation team, you will help deliver important communications for the PR19 (price review 2019) programme.

Our client wants their customers, employees, stakeholders and PR19 programme teams to understand the PR19 story and the role they have to play in it. Everybody can get involved & they want their audiences to know this and to provide feedback. This will effectively be achieved by working closely with and bridging the activities between the Brand & Marketing team and PR19 teams.

You will play a pivotal role not only in shaping how the communications are delivered in terms of idea generation, strategy and implementation but you will lead by example and get involved where needs be.

This is an ideal opportunity to join the largest water utility company in the UK and help shape its' priorities for the future. The price review is a process which takes place every five years and now is the critical time in which we come to the final stage of engagement with our customers, stakeholders and employees - ensuring they all have the opportunity to provide their views.
