CEA is a dynamic, fast-paced department that is involved in multiple projects across the University. Working in a friendly and lively office, the role holder will be a crucial lynchpin between the various teams that make up CEA.

As a part of the media and external communications team, the role holder is the first point of contact, during office hours, for journalists and plays a vital role in delivering Cranfield University’s media relations strategy.  The role would suit someone with strong organisational skills and a strong interest in the news agenda.
