Communications Assistant

Could you use your initiative to be our first point of contact for our busy Communications team, dealing with varied and unpredictable enquiries? Can you co-ordinate and create engaging online content to help communicate to our staff, students and external audiences? Are you a highly motivated individual, with organisation, attention to detail and a can-do attitude?

The University’s Communications team plays a vital role in engaging staff and students, and promoting the education and research strengths of the University. 

You will work across our busy internal, digital and media teams, supporting and triaging incoming queries and requests from within and outside the organisation. As well as supporting proactive, engaging communications, you will require good judgement and experience of handling potentially sensitive information, to help manage the University’s profile and protect its reputation.  The role is fast-paced so you will need to thrive when handling competing deadlines and be calm and effective under pressure, whilst remaining flexible.
