This is us
Wales is the only country in the world with a Well-being of Future Generations Act. The Future Generations Commissioner is seeking a permanent new member of the Communications team to support a busy programme of activity and help speak up for the people of Wales who haven’t been born yet.
Changing culture in the public sector, improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural well- being of Wales and protecting the interests of future generations, all fall within the remit of Wales’ pioneering Well-being of Future Generations Act and the Commissioner and her team are tasked with helping to make this happen.
We value difference. We welcome applicants from across Wales and we operate an Anytime Anywhere Flexible Working policy.
Guaranteed Interview Scheme: We recognise our team could be more diverse so operate a guaranteed interview scheme for people from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic backgrounds and disabled people who apply and meet the essential job criteria. Tell us about your lived experience when making your application.
Is this you?
Do you want to help make a real and lasting difference to the lives of current and future generations in Wales?
As Content Creator, you will be a constantly curious, visual story-teller, someone who is always full of ideas and who loves finding new ways to communicate important and sometimes complex messages.
You’ll enjoy creating multi-visual and audio content including info-graphics, podcasts and videos and be at ease with running busy social media channels and our website content to amplify our work.
A confident communicator, you will be able to write well and create snappy social media content from complex information, from graphics headlines to comprehensive Twitter threads.
You will need to be able to reach out to, engage with and understand the needs of a diverse range of audiences to help us broaden our reach. You will play a key role in connecting with and platforming voices who are not as frequently heard, and we’ll be keen to hear your ideas for building on and growing our online engagement with diverse audiences and young people.
You might be creating sleek graphics for media kits and international speeches one day, and preparing and delivering an engaging social media schedule, or working with the rest of the communications team to come up with brilliant media campaigns, the next. Other days you could be sourcing media content and working with influencers, co-producing a self-shot video with others to tell the story of the brilliant things being done in Wales to beat climate change, or, just as importantly, finding innovative ways to call out the inaction and failures elsewhere.
You’ll be someone who will learn with us as we walk the talk. We are an organisation which likes to think differently, to question and to try new ways of doing things, encouraging creativity and new ideas. So, we are looking for someone who enjoys helping others with their work, someone who likes to continually improve their performance and knowledge and can work flexibly and independently in response to the needs of others.
What skills do you need?
- You will have experience of identifying digital opportunities to enhance the profile of an organisation, community group or club and be able to demonstrate some measurable achievements.
- The ability to self-shoot and edit video.
- Ability to design infographics.
- You’ll be able to evidence excellent organisational skills, showing your ability to take the initiative.
- You’ll be able to tell us about ideas and initiatives that showcase your ability to work creatively and innovatively.
- You’ll have experience of using digital methods for community engagement or participation, media or other communications sectors.
- You’ll have knowledge of publishing via the web, media or social media platforms.
- Knowledge of design software such as InDesign, Photoshop, Canva.
- Some understanding of the Well-being of Future Generations Act.
- Knowledge of developing and maintaining websites.
- Coding skills.
- Experience of using a CMS (we use WordPress).
- An ability to communicate in Welsh.
