Our Corporate Communications team is seeking an internal communications manager to play an important role in helping to execute our communications strategy, which is designed to enhance the company’s reputation with both internal and external audiences. The ideal candidate will be a creative self-starter, committed to delivering quality communications that positively support our culture and our brand.
The job will be primarily internal communications, with a special focus on communications at our manufacturing plants. Navistar has four manufacturing plants located in Springfield, Ohio; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Huntsville, Alabama; and Escobedo, Mexico, as well as a number of additional non-corporate locations, representing almost 75 percent of our workforce. Many of these employees are “non-connected” employees who do not have regular access to company email or digital channels. This role will be responsible for executing a communications plan to reach those employees, working closely with manufacturing leadership and the Human Resources staff in each plant. While this role will be based at our corporate headquarters in Lisle, Ill., the internal communications manager will be expected to frequently visit our plants (one plant visit a month at a minimum) and will maintain strong relationships with plant leadership.
The internal communications manager will also be responsible for supporting various other corporate communications initiatives and daily tasks as time permits.
