Summary of vacancy

Experienced senior internal communications professional?

You can help create a greener UK

A greener, more environmentally-friendly UK is possible – and we’re making it happen.

As Senior Internal Communications Manager at SUEZ recycling and recovery UK, you’ll be contributing to an ever growing, established recycling and waste management company that’s helping customers reduce their impact on the environment, conserve natural resources and reduce landfill.


About the role

What will I be doing as Senior Internal Communications Manager?

  • It’s a chance to put your talents to the test in a stimulating role, where you will lead the team responsible for compelling internal communications that help our employees put our strategy into action, improve employee engagement and contribute to behaviour change. A key tenet of the role is to develop the company’s strategic narrative, SUEZ recycling and recovery UK’s compelling business story that explains our background, vision for the future and how employees can contribute to this.
  • You will be part of our 24-strong communications team, in which you will manage two direct reports. As a member of the management team for the communications department you will also attend and input into management meetings and the strategy for the department. Reporting to the Director of Communications, the role is based at our newly refurbished Maidenhead head office in Berkshire, where you will be part of a close knit, supportive department where the culture is both dynamic and friendly.
  • You will be responsible for managing all of the company’s internal communications channels and events, directly counselling the CEO and other senior leaders to think strategically about how management decisions can be perceived internally, with a focus on ensuring that employees can support a decision and understand how it impacts their role and their work.
  • The Senior Internal Communications is responsible for developing internal communications strategies for each business division and must therefore be able to counsel and have dialogue with staff at all levels.

What are the requirements? (experience and qualifications)

  • Creative with an eye for detail, a background in the waste industry isn’t essential, as we’ll give you all the training you need. However, you must be passionate about the strategy behind internal communications.
  • A CIPR diploma in internal communications or qualification in behavioral change is desirable.
  • You must have experience of working with a diverse range of stakeholders, including senior leaders.
  • You will have excellent time and project management skills, able to work to deadlines. 
  • A true team player, you’ll thrive on working with your fellow colleagues and bring a creative, collaborative approach to everything you do.
  • The role will involve travelling to different parts of the UK, so the candidate will hold a current driving license.
