Is internal communication for you?

People enter internal communication from all sorts of backgrounds and organisations are increasingly seeking a diverse range of knowledge and skills to fill their internal communication needs. 


The right combination of skills and knowledge will vary, dependent on the sector, specific role requirements and whether particular specialist or management capabilities are required. However, certain core characteristics and behaviours will stand you in good stead in an internal communication career and help you to perform well whatever the circumstances.

 

A career in internal communication will suit you if: 
  • You're able to build strong, trusting relationships with a diverse group of people
  • You have a creative flair which enables you to take ordinary messages and create engaging stories
  • You're interested in psychology or neuroscience and the various factors which influence the ways in which people behave or interpret information
  • You have good emotional intelligence and are empathetic towards others' feelings and circumstances
  • You're keen on gaining a well-rounded understanding of the organisation that you work for and an ability to shape working environments
  • You're organised and able to take an idea and translate it into an actionable plan.
