We are looking for a Team Lead – External Communications, Strategy and Planning to lead global external and media relations team for a significantly influential global business organisation, based in the Middle East.
This is a new role and is the team lead, so you will require at least 10+ years' experience in a high growth global business environment. We are open to agency (suggested level Associate Director/Director) or in house, but you must have proven experience in external communications within a modern global business environment. Please note that for this role native (or fluent) English is essential, with Arabic being a plus.
This role is based in Doha, Qatar and will require relocation which is fully supported by the organisation. The key factors to be considered for this role are 10+ years’ expertise in global external and media relations and full fluency in English. Your appetite for life in Doha and the ability to relocate will certainly be as important, as this is a very sociable, engaged team who enjoy working together, so this is not for someone who is looking for remote working.
This fully global team are on a buoyant growth curve. The energy in the team is very much one that is connected to the world and one that is a melting pot for best practice and great ideas - they are a down to earth, friendly and connected team to work with and you will be welcomed from day one. The culture here is one where a pragmatic team spirit and calm confidence will see people advance their careers quickly in a very nurturing environment. Your expertise will be welcomed and celebrated in this organisation, and you will be expected to enable others to grow whilst growing yourself.
Where might you come from? We are open to applications from corporate, political and financial comms backgrounds, but the priority will be your gold standard experience. What is key for success in this role is experience of depth in your work, the ability to focus and apply your concentration whilst thinking with accuracy across many multiple trains of thought leadership.
Why move to Doha? Whilst there are 365 days of sunshine a year, life in Doha is about more than the weather. This career move will give you a culture that is all about insight and intelligence, and where your own cultural heritage is respected and celebrated with the other 55+ nationalities in the building. This is a distinctly global team and environment, which brings its own opportunities and adventures. Extremely generous holiday allowance, relocation allowance, travel allowance, wonderful international schools, a full relocation and onboarding support package, in an environment that is rich with arts, museums, theatre, sports, medical facilities and that every expat says is the safest place they have ever lived.
