Corporate Communication Lead 

 

In May 2021, Lendi and Aussie Home Loans merged to create Lendi Group. Today, Lendi Group is Australia's largest retail mortgage broker, with a loan book in excess of $80 billion, over 1200 brokers and 225 retail stores across the country.

At Lendi Group, we use technology to drive better customer outcomes and experiences. We’re passionate about what we do and like to do things differently.

With the understanding that true business partnership is the future of corporate communications, the Corporate Communication Lead will be empowered to set the corporate communications strategy.  You will be in the room when we are debating what to do on social issues, human capital challenges, risk prevention, and how we position the company in an increasingly complicated stakeholder ecosystem (both internally and externally).

You will oversee the successful operation of the function across strategic, BAU and project initiatives. The role involves steering the long-term strategy to build a best-practice corporate communications function, working in partnership with the organisation. At the same time, you will operate in a hands-on capacity to deliver compelling communications, which engage our team and are inclusive of all working in a flex-first manner across the country. 

You will work collaboratively with PR, Strategy, Employee Experience and Culture, Marketing and Leadership teams to deliver operational and strategic communications, executive communications, events, and team engagement initiatives – both internally and externally.  Beyond building the corporate reputation and expanding our social impact, your work will be critical in ensuring our teams have the information they need to do their jobs effectively and will contribute to it being a great place to work.

  • Identify and execute ways to bring our corporate culture and flex first ways of working to life internally and externally
  • Own your own portfolio of communications projects and operational channels and working with stakeholders across the business to plan and deliver appropriate, relevant, timely communications

 

Our ideal candidate profile

  • A creative, strategic communications professional who is eager to challenge the status quo and has experience in doing so
  • Exceptional communication skills, with proven experience in producing compelling and persuasive communication across all channels
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills, with the ability to liaise with and influence senior management
  • Ability to assess impacts of changes, connect the dots across multiple projects and BAU initiatives and propose mitigating communications activities to ensure successful outcomes

  • Prior background in banking or the financial services industry, and experience in engagement with latest forms of digital, social media and technology-led communication methods and measurement
