We’re looking for a temporary Campaigns Officer to join our communications team to help deliver a comprehensive service to communities, staff and stakeholders.

The role involves improving public safety and achieving other corporate objectives through campaigns, working alongside colleagues across the organisation and partners.

Communicating during emergencies, media relations and supporting projects, events and consultations are all part of this varied role.

The successful candidate will be experienced in campaign planning, implementation and evaluation.

This requires of the post holder the ability to travel out of hours across Lancashire within a reasonable timescale.

Interviews are likely to take place on Wednesday 15 December 2021.

We reserve the right to close applications for the advertised post prior to the published closing date.
