The Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) is seeking an experienced Communications and Engagement Manager to lead on the development and delivery of road safety communications and engagement work.  The successful candidate will bring dedication and passion to the role, supporting our Partners and communities to make a positive impact on road safety in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

The role will be hosted by the Staffordshire Commissioner’s Office, but work as part of a small multi-agency team supporting the Partnership. 

The SSRP was formed in 2001 to support collaboration between local public sector organisations in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent with the aim of improving road safety. Delivery areas include education & training, community engagement, enforcement and highway engineering.

The role will be varied with the chance to build relationships with a diverse range of people and organisations. The ability to communicate at all levels with both internal and external partners is also essential.

As the role will lead on all aspects of communications and engagement, applicants must have previous experience in a similar role.

The post will be based at Staffordshire Police HQ, but there is flexibility to also work from home and other Partner offices. Working 37 hours per week with some possible weekend and evening working.

We want to reflect the communities we serve and one way we can try to achieve this is through a 'positive action' approach.
