Buzword Bingo!

The Job advert in the previous post made me think of Buzzword Bingo. The rules are very simple, you select a number of "management speak words and phrases and then read through an advert or listen to a council speech and cross off the word or phrases as they are used. The person to get all of their words or phrases is the winner.

Acceptable "buzzwords" are highlighted below

We (Essex County Council) are looking for an enthusiastic and talented individual to join the Council's dynamic and forward-thinking internal communications team, as an Internal Communications Officer. Your energy will help us continue our drive to deliver excellent internal communications to the employees of Essex County Council.

Involved in all aspects of this busy internal communications team, you will help edit and write for the employee magazine; research and write news stories for the intranet; act as an internal communications business partner, advising directorates on all aspects of internal communications; and provide internal communications support for a variety of business campaigns and change programmes.

Your passion for internal communications and ability to embrace change will be combined with strong news writing skills - good grammar and spelling are essential. You will need an ability to prioritise your workload, work on your own initiative as well as with the team, and to multi-task.

A sound working knowledge and experience ideally in an internal communications environment, this is an opportunity for you to grow and develop your internal communications skills within a professional and energetic team.
