You will provide subject matter expertise on internal communications for the entire agency, lead the development and distribution of communications to staff, and manage the agency’s internal strategic planning process. You must be a strong writer and editor and understand the elements of good storytelling and adept at deploying modern communication methods with the goal of increasing employee engagement.
