The Port of London Authority (PLA) oversees operations along 95 miles of the tidal Thames, home to the UK’s biggest port, busiest inland waterway for passengers and freight, and national hub for watersports.

There are exciting prospects for growth on the Thames as the economy decarbonises, urban logistics transform and the city reshapes, all captured in the long-term development plan for the river, Thames Vision 2050.

We are seeking an experienced Communications Manager to join our busy team, proactively seeking coverage for the organisation, managing community relations and overseeing licensing of filming and events.

This role will suit someone who has substantial media and stakeholder engagement experience, possibly in an infrastructure or transport organisation. Prior experience of film and event licensing would be advantageous, but not essential.

Reporting to our Head of Communication, this role will principally be based at the PLA’s City of London office, with periodic travel to sites along the river, including the main operational base in Gravesend.

Appropriate training and support will be available to ensure you succeed in this role. Along with the salary you will also receive the following benefits:

  • 28 days annual leave
  • Health cash plan with limited Private Medical Insurance
  • Generous pension
  • Onsite parking with electric charging
  • Access to Occupational Health, Mindfulness, Counselling and Physiotherapy
  • Workplace Nursery Scheme
  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Salary Sacrifice Car Scheme

For more information and to have an informal chat about the position please call Nick Tennant on 01474 562246.

A full job description is available here.

To apply, please complete an application form (Word, PDF) and send it to before the closing date of 9 April 2022.

You are required to have a Right to Work in UK, as currently the PLA is not a sponsor employer, therefore an offer of employment cannot be made unless you currently hold the rights to live and work in the UK.
