Our purpose is to use the power of communications to make a better world. For each other, for our customers, for society and our communities. We need you to help us do this.
Why this role matters
We’re a huge company made up of seven different units – customer-facing and corporate. And within each unit there are a number of large functions that have a role to play in our company’s success. We need to celebrate the work these functions do in pursuit of our goals, while making sure their communication needs tie back to our BT and IC strategy. This isn’t about supporting the leaders of these large functions to communicate their personal priorities but working with them to showcase their work to the wider business, while making sure their teams are engaged and committed to BT’s vision, strategy, goals and priorities.
You’ll work closely with the function you support to offer strategic advice and communications activity in line with our internal comms strategy. You’ll spot the stuff we need to share and know how to say ‘no’ to anything that doesn’t help improve understanding of the bigger picture and advocacy of our brand. You’ll be a dab hand at comms planning, working closely with the senior internal comms manager for your CFU to create an annual IC plan for the function, that ties back to your CFU and the broader IC plan.
You’ll be a passionate advocate of our BT brand, no matter which part of the business you sit in, making sure that any content you create for your audiences looks, sounds and feels like BT You’ll work closely with our comms teams in the corporate teams to work out what and when communications need to be adapted for your audience and you’ll constantly look for new ways to improve what we do, share insight and any new ideas you’ve come across.
What you'll be doing
•Partner with the function to gain support and buy-in for the IC strategy, demonstrating the benefits for all employees.
•Manage the sharing of all BT-wide communications into your function.
•Create an annual IC plan for your function that ties back to your CFU and BT’s broader IC plan, working closely with the head of internal comms and corporate affairs director to make sure it all stacks up.
•Create and deliver any bespoke comms activity for your function - including any strategic projects or function initiatives - making sure they’re on brand and support our IC principles.
•Build strong and respectful relationships with your stakeholders – including senior leadership - providing spot-on advice on comms best practice, industry trends and BT-wide channel strategies to improve their understanding of the bigger comms picture.
•Proactively share any brilliant work from your function back into the corporate IC team to share across BT.
•Seek out feedback on IC activities and constantly look for new ways – internally and externally - to do things differently, in pursuit of making our IC team one of the best in the industry.
