We are looking for an accomplished and passionate Content Manager to join our Communications and External Affairs (CEA) team. Reporting to the Head of Brand Marketing, you will play a key role in developing and implementing our content strategy and action plans.
We are looking for a marketing communications professional who has proven experience in creating content strategies, alongside crafting content as a writer, editor and director, working with photographers, studio, designers and printers.
The primary focus will be to get the right content to the right audience at the right time through the strategic planning of content creation, delivery and governance. While producing content yourself, you will also be responsible for considering how content might be re-distributed and/or re-purposed for other channels in partnership with colleagues in marketing and communications across the University.
Educated to degree level or equivalent, you will possess strong writing, content creation and influencing skills and be able to prioritise a demanding workload to meet deadlines.
You will have excellent attention to detail, highly developed influencing skills and experience in working to agreed brand guidelines including tone of voice.
You will thrive here if you know the difference between content strategy and copywriting, and you do both well. You love words, but understand that content is much more than just copy.
For an informal discussion, please contact Laura Keightley, Head of Brand Marketing (Acting), on (T); +44 (0)1234 75 8141 or (E); email@example.com
