Coventry University Group is on an exciting journey. We've been delivering education in Coventry and beyond for 175 years, we're recognised for our student focused approach to teaching and learning, and we've just been described by the Times and Sunday Times as one of the most innovative universities out there. Now we're looking for people to help us tell our story.
We've created a new senior role to help us to respond to new ways of delivering news. We're after an exceptional individual who's capable of leading our media team and working with colleagues to establish editorial boards for content. The right person for the role will not only have a keen eye for a story, but also the drive and motivation to make sure we tell those stories everywhere using words, images and graphics to engage audiences both in the UK and overseas.
What you will be doing;
You will be leading a skilled and motivated media team to get our stories out there and noticed. Using inventive techniques and ideas, you will strengthen Coventry's position in the digital news environment ensuring we do not simply rely on what we know, but increasingly use up to date social media and other new and emerging tools to tell our stories. Critically, with your instinct for what makes engaging content and your relentless tenacity to get people working to achieve your vision, you will pull together editorial boards to develop a content first approach that informs our web, social and all communication channels.
