Marketing and Communications Manager
Are you a highly collaborative senior marketing and communications professional looking for a new challenge? Do you have experience in brand development and international profile raising? Can you develop and deliver on strategies to secure philanthropic and industry investment in research? Would you like a newly created role where you can have a real impact on the transformation of health and care in Leeds, the UK’s third largest city?
The Leeds Centre for Personalised Medicine and Health accelerates the research, evaluation and adoption of new treatments and technologies that move away from a ‘one size fits all’ approach. We aim to improve health in a healthy economy, underpinned by the best research and education. We are committed to driving forward innovative approaches that support the whole person, and shift the focus from one of disease, to one of health.
We are going through an exciting period of growth and change. As part of the Leeds Academic Health Partnership, and supported by the University of Leeds and Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network, we are accelerating our ambition to transform the health, wealth and wellbeing of our citizens.
Through the development of our ‘precision prevention’ flagship projects, focussed on the prevention of frailty and the early diagnosis of cancer, we are driving forward our strategy to improve health and care, generate inclusive economic growth and demonstrate academic excellence and impact.
To support our growth, we are seeking an experienced Marketing and Communications Manager to provide comprehensive strategic and operational support. Working to the Head of Operations, you will devise and implement a fully integrated, multi-faceted marketing and communications strategy, working with us to grow both our reputation and income.
You will have significant experience of working at a senior level in a communications or PR role with partners from across complex, large organisations. You will have experience in developing marketing and communications strategies, supporting collaborations with industry and the third sector, working with the media, running high profile events and managing the production of editorial and marketing materials.
