Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use an internal communications recruitment agency?

Comma knows the internal communication recruitment market inside out and know what companies are looking for. We spend our time making great matches between clients and candidates.

We can advise on internal communication pay rates and can negotiate on your behalf.

How much can I expect to earn as a mid-level internal communicator?
This will depend on level of experience and whether the role is a permanent role or an interim role.

For permanent roles, pay levels will be in the £40,000-£65,000 range. These will be for candidates who are generally on their second or third role.

For interim mid-level roles you will be looking at the £350-£500 range, again depending on type of role and level of experience.

How much experience do I need to be an internal communication interim?

This will depend on your level and experience, but usually around seven years of experience.

If you are thinking about becoming an interim for the first time, you can read about the experience of others who have made the jump in our career advisory session on what it takes to work as an interim.

How much experience do I need to be a Head of Internal Communication or a Director of Internal Communications?

This will depend on the size and type of organisation and whether it has line management responsibility but, as a rule of thumb, an internal communicator will need a minimum of seven years of experience to become a Head of Internal Communicators and 10+ for a Director of Internal Communications.

If you want to understand more about what it takes to become a Head of Internal Communication or a Director of Internal Communication, you can read our career advisory blog here.

How long are interim internal communication contracts?
Internal Communication contract roles are usually 6 or 12 months. Often, they are extended.
Do many part-time internal communication vacancies become available?
Part-time internal communication roles at the mid to senior level are available from time to time, although many companies, conscious of their health and wellness responsibilities, do usually offer work at home or hybrid working models.
Can I work from home doing an internal communication job?
There are various working models out there for internal communication jobs: work from home, office based and hybrid. Most companies are flexible but generally require at least three days working from an office.
How long will the recruitment process take?
Once we have a brief from a client we will move very quickly to present our best matched shortlist of candidates. The permanent process can be four to eight weeks, depending on the number of interviews required. Interim jobs are generally filled much more quickly – with a shortlist presented within two or three days and often a rapid start date once a candidate is chosen. We encourage every one of our clients to make the employee experience as efficient and enjoyable as possible.
