External Communications Specialist
Wellington City, Wellington, NZ
3d ago

FMG is placing an increasingly strong focus on how it shares its story of helping to build strong and prosperous rural communities, so this is an exciting time for the right person to join the team.

The successful candidate will be supported by a highly engaged and high performing communications team and work closely with FMG’s marketing team and other internal and external stakeholders.

The role will allow you to maximise your wide-ranging external communications experience, in sourcing great stories and to creatively tell those through traditional and new media channels.

Whilst the role will largely focus on developing and delivering proactive external communication, you will also be experienced in providing sound advice in supporting FMG through a crisis and be comfortable managing reactive media queries to a high standard.

This will be in support of the Communications Manager.

The role will be responsible for all aspects of FMG’s formal external communications, including publications, and wider online platforms, so great writing and attention to detail is a must.

New ideas and initiatives to the way we work will be welcomed, and you’ll be comfortable providing communications advice to senior leaders across FMG, including the Executive Leadership Team.

Connections to farming and / or experience in insurance would be an advantage but not a requirement. Where appropriate the role will also work on FMG’s major wellbeing give back initiative, Farmstrong, and FMG’s increasing work around sustainability.

The successful candidate will work for an organisation that has a culture like no other and be supported to achieve their best, with access to a broad range of professional development opportunities and employee benefits.

You’ll work within an award-winning communications team that has a clear direction within the organisation, and a positive attitude in delivering communications to a high standard.

If you have the attitude, skills, a tertiary qualification in communications or equivalent, and several years of the external communications experience we’re looking for, then we’d love to hear from you.
