Internal and External Communications

Now is an exciting time to join the Defra Group and its Communications team. We are shaping plans that will deliver genuine and lasting change for food, farming, fishing and the environment, outside the EU.

We have a significant international and European agenda, with as much as 80% of our work impacting across borders. As part of EU Exit, we are committed to engaging across the Defra Group’s sectors and stakeholders, as well as the wider public.

For you, this is the chance to not only power communications, but power change for the nation.

External Communications

In our News and External Communications team, you could help to plan, coordinate and deliver announcements and policies to the relevant external audiences including the media, stakeholders, businesses and the public.

Internal Communications

As part of our Internal Communications team, you will work closely with Communication Leads in our main arm’s-length bodies, as well as our Press and Digital teams. Here, you will be driving and delivering the department’s key priorities, and ensuring that our colleagues are engaged with the latest news and equipped to act as its best ambassadors.
