Passionate about great places to live, GreenSquare is a housing association group with charitable status which develops a range of new homes – for rent, shared ownership, and sale – and provides housing management, care and support, and commercial property services.

This role is within the group-wide Communications team, leading the research, writing, and editing of Group news releases and editorial for publications – including our website and intranet, customer magazines and reports – working with, and advising, stakeholders as required. 

In this role you will also provide an efficient and accurate enquiry response service for local, trade and national media. And you will coordinate the proactive and effective use of social media channels – working with, and advising, stakeholders as required. 

As the central contact for those who need help and guidance with PR and publicity, you will also take a supporting role in the design and production of some Group promotional and information material.

Proven hands-on experience of editorial-based work in a busy communications environment is essential, as is a good 'news sense' and experience of media liaison. You'll need an ability to work well under pressure and to tight deadlines, and have a keen eye for detail.

The role is based at GreenSquare's head office in Chippenham and is envisaged as full-time, 37 hours per week; there may be option to negotiate different working hours for an exceptional candidate.
