Our work makes a difference to people’s lives every day – and our people are at the heart of what we do. How our people feel and their connection to their work matters to us. The Financial Ombudsman Service is going through a significant period of change. It’s vital that we understand how our people feel and what’s important to them – and that we communicate with them in a way that’s transparent and honest.

You’ll support the head of internal communication and engagement in developing the capability of internal communications at the Financial Ombudsman Service – including the development of two-way feedback mechanisms and a manager cascade.
You’ll have an excellent track record in internal communications and engagement and will have successfully managed internal communications in a change environment. You’ll be skilled at building strong relationships internally and influencing and negotiating with a range of stakeholder at all levels.
