Current Vacancies

Communications Manager

Band B2 £33,000 (entry level) - £37,520 (maximum) per annum. Appointment is normally made at entry level. 

The Communications Manager is a vital post working across the organisation to manage the delivery of high quality, consistent and targeted communications materials and activities which reflect its professionalism, ambition and values.  It is a busy role covering the spectrum of CPA UK’s projects and programmes.  The Communications Manager will be responsible for translating the communications strategy into a body of work which maximises opportunities to promote CPA UK as an organisation and the effectiveness of its work.  Focus should be on quality rather than quantity; however, it will be important to emphasise the breadth and value of all CPA UK’s programmes and projects.

The role is suitable for an experienced communications professional with strategic vision, initiative, sound judgement and a proven track record of delivery at pace.

The Communications Manager line manages one Communications Officer, whose scope of work will be similar; however, an important aspect of the role will be managing how communications work is shared to achieve optimal results.
