Are you an enthusiastic and motivated events or communications professional? Do you want to use your knowledge and experience to successfully plan and deliver events, communications and opportunities to graduates of Leeds University Business School? 

Alumni relations are critical for a world class Business School in developing lifelong, mutually beneficial relationships with its graduates. We strive to deliver activity for our alumni to enhance their knowledge, provide networking and professional development opportunities, and keep them updated with news of their fellow alumni and developments within the Business School. 

You will have experience of planning, promoting and delivering events. You will have excellent planning skills, be self-directing, with excellent organisational and administrative skills, with experience of manipulating and maintaining databases. 

You will have some communications experience, with excellent written and verbal communications skills, a keen eye for detail, creative flair and the confidence to help develop relationships and networks with alumni, colleagues and a wide range of stakeholders. You will act as the first point of contact with Business School alumni, so will be a confident and professional communicator. 

You will also be digitally savvy, playing a key role in delivering communications to our alumni via our website, social media and digital channels. You will be involved in writing copy, commissioning design, photography and marketing communications duties. 

The nature of the role means that there will be a requirement for occasional weekend and evening working in the UK. 

The role is part of the University Marketing Team. The primary focus will be on marketing for the Faculty of Business, working as part of the marketing team that supports business, law, social sciences and education portfolios, but this may change over time.
