Closing Date: Wednesday 17 July 2019

The University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a Digital Content Creative to work on a new project, funded by the Office for Students, entitled “Embedding a High Skilled workforce in Greater Lincolnshire - multi-disciplinary industry/ business challenge projects”.
The aim of this project is to embed High Level/ Professional skills in the Greater Lincolnshire region through a unique partnership between universities, employers and local authorities. Through the generation of 30 ‘real world’ industry/ business challenges, the project will offer 130 students from Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University a unique opportunity to work in multi-disciplinary teams and pitch their solutions to medium to large businesses across the Greater Lincolnshire region.
The Digital Content Creative will initially be tasked with setting up a blog/website and/or social media channels for the project. These will be used to publish and promote evaluative and impact digital resources and/or case studies of the projects as they develop in the form of short videos, photography and short blog-style updates or social media content. The role-holder will play a key role in creating these resources and updating the digital platform or channels on a regular basis to ensure that the project and its impact is promoted on an ongoing basis (although support and training will be available if necessary). Students will also play a role in creating digital resources and updating the digital platform and/or channels and the role-holder will be expected to work collaboratively in partnership with the students to enable this.
The role-holders will need skills in at least one aspect of digital asset creation (e.g. video editing, graphic design, social media management, etc), excellent communication and inter-personal skills and the ability to work independently and also within a team environment. Some experience of project management would also be beneficial, alongside experience of editing a website or blog, although, as this is a graduate-level role, training and support will be available for the role-holder if required.
Please note there will be a salary increase for the second year of the role.
