Succeeding in IC

Succeeding in internal communication

Career opportunities in internal communication are better than ever before, as organisations are realising the impact that high standard internal communication has on overall organisational performance.

The core skill of writing remains vital in order to deliver effective internal communication. However, there is an increasing demand for internal communicators to have strong business acumen, strategic nous and the ability to articulate the value that their efforts have on the successful performance of the organisation. Internal communicators must be able to demonstrate the ways in which their skills and knowledge, and the continuous development of such, make them an expert communicator who is able to advise colleagues and senior leaders in order to achieve the best outcomes.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)


Whether you're a member of a professional body or not, internal communicators (and indeed all professionals!) should endeavour to commit to CPD. This might be in the form of reading about the latest industry insights and trends, attending networking events to learn from your peers, listening to podcasts (there is a great range of IC specific podcasts available as well as more general business and societal podcasts), taking training courses with specific learning objecives, or even studying for an internal communication qualification. 

IoIC members have access to an online CPD platform where they can create a personal development plan, set objectives and record all of the CPD activities that they've completed in order to achieve those objectives. Find out more about CPD with the IoIC here
