The Jaguar Land Rover Manufacturing plant plays an increasingly important role in our growth strategy, and positions us as the UK’s largest car manufacturer and employer. As the Communications Manager, you will develop and deliver a communications strategy which supports the plant’s operational excellence on a national level, as well as building its reputation locally. Reporting to the UK Manufacturing Manager and Plant Operations Director, you will regularly interface with the Executive Committee, employees and trade unions. You’ll lead a dedicated, full service communications team, and you’ll own relationships with local and regional stakeholders (including councillors, MPs and LEP representatives), to ensure the interests of our business and our people are well represented. While you’ll drive both external and internal communications, your main focus will be on the development of an internal strategy, which will see you manage all site-wide activities and establish standardised communications across the plant. Ultimately, you’ll align business and local objectives to engage and motivate the Manufacturing workforce, driving significant improvements productivity, efficiency and quality. 
Bringing relevant PR and communications experience, you’ll have worked in a stand-alone communications role in a large organisation with a diverse customer group. Ideally, you’ll have also worked within an automotive/unionised environment, and you'll handle the management of sensitive communications issues with ease. Of course, you’ll have excellent communication skills (spoken and written), plus you’ll be commercially astute. As well as excellent stakeholder management skills, you’ll have the ability to negotiate and influence at a senior level. What’s more, you’ll be experienced in events management and you’ll understand key communications and engagement practices, both tactical and strategic.
Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan, private medical cover and performance related bonus scheme. As a manager, you’ll also be able to select one of our luxury premium vehicles to lease at a fraction of the cost. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
