Head Of Health/Wellbeing And Partnership Communications - FMCG Retailer

London, UK

Consumer

An exciting and rare opportunity has arisen to join one of the biggest FMCG retailers as a Head of Health, Wellbeing and Partnership Communications with a remit to devise and lead their strategy/approach in the health sphere.

This role blends communications, stakeholder engagement and events/charity partnership management so would best suit someone with either a consumer or corporate communications background, who has managed partnerships (ideally with charities) and worked on large scale consumer events for big brands.

The Company

A household name in the FMCG, Food & Drink and retail space, this company gets a huge amount of attention from the press and is one of the UK’s biggest brands. They continue to innovate to ensure they are ahead of the competition, with regular new initiatives and exciting product developments – from launching vegan ranges, trialling artificial intelligence in-store and continuing to always diversify their product offerings.

The company HQ has a fantastic vibe – with an on-site gym, heavily subsidised cafes, football and basketball court, with suppliers regularly setting up pop up food and drink stalls. The culture is trusting and flexible – as long as you get your work done, there’s no clock watching - giving you an incredible work life balance on top of a great benefits package that ensures employee retention remains incredibly strong.

The Role – Head of Health/Wellbeing and Partnership Communications

In this role, you’ll very much be the visionary for the brand’s health strategy, helping to drive campaigns that really showcase this company as a great place to work and shop to boost wellbeing and make healthier choices.

The role consists of several key elements:

  • Managing the brand’s important partnerships with three health charities: defining joint activity and engaging to help develop and execute a plan to improve the health of customers, employees and colleagues
  • Running the brand’s huge owned fundraising health and wellbeing event – this year the event made upwards of £1 million in just one weekend!
  • Extensive internal liaison with relevant departments internally to pull together/co-ordinate all the brand’s relevant activity into one central health/wellbeing communications strategy

Whilst you don’t need to have experience in the health and wellbeing sphere, what you do need to have is experience of working in a commercial environment for a large, consumer-facing brand. Passion and experience in health/wellbeing is a huge plus!

You will have:

  • Experience in managing partnerships with charities/third parties
  • In house experience preferred but agency will be considered
  • Big brand experience
  • Strong track record of strategic communications
  • Experience in health (or at least passion for the sector)
  • Excellent stakeholder management skills, able to influence at various levels and work with a wide range of stakeholders

In return:

  • A salary of £75,000 - £100,000 DOE
  • Annual bonus up to 45% of annual salary
  • Private healthcare and health screening every 2 years
  • Holiday starting at 25 days plus a personal day
  • 10% savings in store
  • A retirement savings plan – 6-10% contribution rate
