We are the captive automotive finance provider for Vauxhall Motors in the UK and Opel in our European countries, with our UK headquarters based in Cardiff, UK. With over 90 years of experience, our operations in the UK has an unrivalled reputation in offering finance solutions for the automotive industry.

The success of the company is reliant on the collaboration of the team and functions. As significant assets to our company, employees are valued and given opportunities to broaden and develop their skills.

We are small enough for an individual to make a mark; large enough to develop a challenging career.

 

Responsibilities

As our Senior Communications Specialist, you will act as a crucial member of the team by delivering key internal and external communications around our business. You’ll work collaboratively with internal stakeholders and senior leaders across Europe, providing communications support and guidance and helping them to get their message out to the internal business.

 

You will contribute story ideas, write and edit content (announcements; articles), communicating our company’s strategic priorities, values and purpose.

Experience of managing communications channels such as the intranet, with strong editing skills (graphics, video, photography) is important, ideally with working knowledge of SharePoint.

The ability to build excellent internal and external networks and relationships is essential, working collaboratively with colleagues across our European business. You’ll also be independent, self-motivated and able to deliver results within this high profile role.

Strong English language skills are essential; but as an international organisation, fluency in an European language (especially French or Italian) is highly beneficial.
