We also oversee the universal postal service, which means Royal Mail must deliver and collect letters six days a week, and parcels five days a week, at an affordable and uniform price throughout the UK. We look after the airwaves used by wireless devices like cordless phones, walkie talkies and even some car keys and doorbells.
The role is within the Digital and Creative Team, part of the Communications Team, and sits within the Consumer and External Relations group. The Digital and Creative team is responsible for developing and maintaining Ofcom digital channels, which include the Ofcom website, visual branding, creative assets and all publishing activity.

Our aim is to make Ofcom’s digital communications best in class, and to continually improve our digital presence.
This is a key role, preparing and publishing content for a large website using a content management system (CMS). You will have an excellent eye for detail as well as identifying where value can be added to content to make each visit to our website an engaging and inclusive experience.
