Communications management is the systematic planning, implementing, monitoring, and revision of all the channels of communication within an organization, and between organizations.
It also includes the organization and dissemination of new communication directives connected with an organization, network, or communication technology.
Aspects of communications management include developing corporate communication strategies, designing internal and external communications directives, and managing the flow of information, including online communication.
• Communications managers are usually employed to work standard office hours (9 – 5.30) but they are often required to work overtime. • The work will also involve attending press conferences, launches or other publicity or networking events which often take place during the evenings or weekends. • Whilst, in general, communications managers are office based, they will be required to travel away from the office regularly, in order to meet partners or media contacts and they may also be required to stay away from home for short periods of time. • For communications managers working for charities or businesses with an international dimension, the job may well involve regular international trips.
