We are looking for two people who can coordinate and deliver the communications, marketing and engagement strategy for Birmingham City Council’s ambitious Brum Breathes programme, which encompasses a range of initiatives (including the Clean Air Zone (CAZ)) that will help improve Birmingham’s air quality. 

 More specifically, these new roles will have responsibility for the delivery of a series of campaigns that will highlight the issue of poor air quality in Birmingham and the ways in which the Council is tackling this significant challenge.  These are key roles for the programme as they will need to ensure that all communications and engagement activity – internally and externally focused - is integrated and coordinated, which will involve working with a range of partners within Birmingham City Council, the city and region.

 The successful candidates will also need to know the difference between earned, owned and paid for media and be comfortable with developing data-driven insight to inform decisions around audiences, messaging and content.  And because the challenge of poor air quality can affect a broad range of people the successful candidates will also need to have experience of community-based engagement so as to support the work of our community engagement teams.
