About the role
At Devon County Council, we are nationally renowned for our top recycling rates. In order to push these figures higher and reduce the volume of waste that is created, we need to make sure we are communicating the right information to the right people in the right way.

And this is where you come in. You will assist in developing and implementing our waste prevention, reuse and recycling campaigns ensuring we make the most of every opportunity to influence and engage with the general public. You will make sure the website is relevant, appealing and up-to-date and you will be involved in digital marketing, keeping our social networking sites running smoothly, and monitoring the effectiveness of online/social networking activities using tools such as Google analytics. We would also like you to have creative input in the development and delivery of a wide range of community engagement events. This is an exciting opportunity to shape the way waste prevention, reuse and recycling is seen across the entire county.                 

About you
Along with an excellent understanding of online marketing and communication techniques, you will be educated to degree level or equivalent experience in a relevant discipline.
Experience of writing for a wide range of audiences would be a bonus. You will have a good grasp of Microsoft Office and will be quick to pick up our ways of working, learning on the job. Enthusiastic and confident, creative and innovative, you have first-class communication skills and appreciate the importance of customer care. You are organised, efficient and always work accurately to tight deadlines and the highest standards. A good team player, you are equally adept at acting on your own initiative.
