    Transport matters to everyone, every single day. It is vital for the environment, the economy, to the country's prosperity and to our health and wellbeing. The Department of Transport (DfT) is leading investment, innovation and change in delivering a modern, technologically advanced transport system across the UK. To do that we are investing in the infrastructure our country needs, making sure our roads are safe, and striving for a net zero economy.

    Transport is also changing faster than at any time in living memory - and the way we communicate as a department is changing just as quickly. The Creative Hub is a new group within the Communications Directorate of DfT. The Hub was created to bring together the creative disciplines of digital, design, writing, and strategy to deliver exciting and innovative communication, engaging new and existing audiences for DfT. The Hub delivers cutting edge communications supporting the work of our ministers and the department and is poised to establish itself more fully and cohesively in 2023.

    As the leader of the Creative Hub, the Deputy Director will shape its culture and identity, managing a diverse group of professionals to really think about how we best tell our story to the widest possible audience. You will also advise the Secretary of State and Ministers on all creative communications including digital, writing and visits on high-profile and often controversial issues. You will be expected to provide strong professional leadership, support and challenge across the communications team, as part of the senior management team and will also use the role to champion diversity and inclusion.

    As the ideal candidate, you're not afraid to take a risk and you are always looking to be innovative. You'll be equally at home managing a talented and ambitious team of communications professionals as you are at engaging senior stakeholders. You'll have proven success in designing and leading innovative content strategies showcasing innovation and creativity. You will possess a desire to continuously optimise and improve the content experience promoting user testing, research and data in the team. Showing us evidence of your political awareness and professional judgement, with a proven track record of providing clear, balanced advice at a senior management level will be key.

    We are looking for someone who is ambitious for themselves and the team, who builds lasting relationships, and who is committed to delivering first class communications to people across the UK.

    This job will never be easy, but it will always be rewarding. If you want to work in a role where you can make a real difference, then we look forward to your application.

    The Civil Service is committed to becoming the most inclusive employer in the UK. We are committed to understanding, respecting and representing as broad a range of views and backgrounds as we have in UK society. We know that diverse perspectives and experiences are critical to an effective, modern Civil Service.
