About the Organisation

With a history stretching back over 85 years, Haymes Paint is a true Australian success story; and whilst their colour palettes and can labels may have changed with the decades, their commitment to quality has remained the same. Now in their fourth generation of family ownership, they haven’t slowed down on bringing new and better products to the market, always looking for new advances or opportunities for innovation. Their values of Truth, Passion, Integrity, Respect and Listening and Learning are reflected in everything they do.

About the Opportunity

With the continuing growth of the business, Haymes Paint now has a newly created opportunity for a Corporate Communications Manager to join their team on a full-time basis. This role is preferably based in Melbourne, though there is potential to work from their Head Office in Ballarat.

Reporting to the Head of Marketing, you will be responsible for engaging with a variety of internal and external stakeholders, collaborating with leaders across the business to build on the unique Haymes’ culture of innovation and transparency; and enable consistent, effective, and scalable communications as the business continues to grow.

Your key responsibilities will include:

Leading the development and delivery of a strategic corporate communications plan and framework;
Ensuring communications are delivered in line with corporate image, internal branding, and engagement aspirations;
Building and maintaining strong working relationships with both external and internal stakeholders, at all levels;
Monitoring, evaluating, and reporting on communications and media activity, reporting against agreed benchmarks and KPIs;
Identifying opportunities to improve or innovate, ensuring this plays a fundamental role in shaping all communications strategies;
Overseeing the redesign and maintenance of the Haymes intranet, developing content that is consistently on-brand; and
Preparing publications, releases, and media materials, liaising with corporate, trade and consumer media outlets.

About the Benefits

Proudly family-owned and operated, Haymes offers the best of both worlds, with the strong commercial oversight and business skills to suite a national leader, without losing sight of what made that success possible – their staff.

Committed to ensuring each member of their team has the opportunity to grow with the business, it shouldn’t be surprising that Haymes has fantastic staff retention, as they genuinely invest in each individual and encourage new ideas. A newly created role, you’ll be well-supported but given the autonomy to truly make this role your own, driving innovation across a range of areas!

The successful candidate will be rewarded with an attractive remuneration package, negotiable based on your skills and experience.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop and deliver innovative communications strategies with a highly supportive, people-focused Aussie business – Apply Now!
