Press and New Media Officer- Enfield

Enfield Council is looking for a motivated and enthusiastic person to join its communications team to support and deliver first class support to the borough's waste enforcement team as they focus on providing cleaner streets for residents.

As press and new media officer you will be responsible for highlighting the enormous amount of work being done to tackle fly tipping and illegal waste disposal in the borough, promoting successful enforcement action and encouraging residents to dispose of their waste properly and legally to reduce incidents of rubbish dumping in Enfield.

Your role will involve pro-actively working with the waste enforcement team to identify and deliver a stream of good news stories to publicise through the media and specifically on social media. The job will include a significant amount of time "on the street" working directly with enforcement officers to identify good news stories.

You will also manage and respond to a high caseload of queries from residents about illegal waste dumping on the Council's social media channels.

The suitable candidate must demonstrate:

Good working knowledge and experience of working across all communications disciplines with a particular focus on social media
Excellent written and oral communications skills
Ability to organise and prioritise a demanding workload to meet tight deadlines
