Job Description



Great Britain’s gambling industry is in a constant state of change, fuelled by shifting consumer behaviour and the rapid growth of technology. It’s high profile politically too, and the legislation controlling gambling is constantly under scrutiny. Within this uniquely challenging and evolving environment, The Gambling Commission’s role is to ensure that gambling is crime free, fair and open - and that children and vulnerable people are protected. Now they need you to play a key role in their future, driving the change needed to ensure that the Gambling Commission can meet the growing complexity of the market and their developing regulatory remit.  
  
The Gambling Commission are now looking for a Communications Co-ordinator to support their internal and external communications activities.

Additionally, you will:  
  
- Write engaging press releases  
- Distribute key information to journalists   
- Co-ordinate the Commission’s subscriptions for publications and comms services 
- Handle simple press enquiries  
- Perform a range of administrative tasks

- Working in a fast-paced communications environment  
- Updating digital content on websites  
- Creating assets and content for social media  
- Co-ordinating branding and materials  
- Organising events and meetings  
- Using Photoshop and/or InDesign
