Work For Us


The Sheffield City Region is a strong public-private partnership tasked with driving economic growth across the city region’s economy. With significant resources at our disposal, a strong track record of delivery and an enviable reputation as a place that gets things done in a straightforward, reliable and practical way we are regularly looking to strengthen our team with new jobs arriving. This is an exciting time to be part of the Sheffield City Region Executive Team.

Head of Communications and Marketing

Salary: competitive

This is an exciting time to be part of the team working directly with Mayor Dan Jarvis, the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Mayoral Combined Authority (MCA), and the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).  Devolution has never been higher on the political agenda, and the MCA and LEP are playing an increasingly important role in shaping our economy. From transport to housing, from business growth to skills, SCR has a great story to tell.

To help us deliver this we need a highly skilled and experienced communications and marketing specialist. As Head of Communications and Marketing you will lead and manage a strategic and operational communications and marketing function. You will work closely with the Mayor, LEP Chair, Chief Executive, and other colleagues to help ensure that the organisation takes the city region forward, and to make sure that residents, government, businesses and other key stakeholders know what we are trying to achieve.

You will already have experience of leading, managing, and being part of a team in a complex environment, developing and implementing a communications and marketing strategy, a keen political antenna, and highly developed communications and marketing skills.

The SCR faces many challenges, and the MCA and its partners are tackling these head on to help create a more successful economy for the people who live and work here. If you want to be part of this, and have the skills, experience, and successful track record we need, then this could be the job for you.

In return, we offer a competitive salary, access to a local Government Pension Scheme and the chance to be part of an organisation where you can really make a difference.

Located in a vibrant city centre location, we are well-placed for transport links and encourage employees to take advantage of a range of benefits, including active travel facilities. We believe in a healthy work/life balance.
