Are you an enthusiastic and motivated communications or events professional? Do you want to use your knowledge and experience to deliver communications and events to build the external profile of the University of Leeds?
We are looking for a communications and events professional to join our busy marketing team. You will deliver multi-channel communications to build our external reputation and deliver flagship events.
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 students, colleagues and a wide range of stakeholders. You will act as the first point of contact with non-marketing colleagues seeking communications support, so will be a confident and professional communicator.
You will have experience of planning, promoting and delivering events. You will be self-directing, with excellent planning, organisational and administrative skills. And you will have experience of using databases to extract and update information on a regular basis.
You will also be digitally savvy, playing a key role in delivering communications 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.
