Head of Communications & External Relations

Farnham, Surrey             

£50,295 to £54,943

At UCA, we believe that creativity makes global communities more vibrant, more innovative, more human. Which is why, for 160 years, our university has been a passionate advocate for creative education and research.

We offer courses in Architecture, Crafts, Fashion, Graphic Design, Illustration, Fine Art, Photography, Film, Media, the Performing Arts and Creative Business. Our programmes are acclaimed for their teaching quality and are highly respected by creative sector employers.

We are now seeking to appoint the Head of Communications & External Relations to join our newly formed Marketing & External Relations Department. The Head of Communications & External Relations will lead on the development and delivery of corporate communications, internal communications and PR, as well as overseeing our content development strategy, and will work with the Vice-Chancellor and our Leadership Team on a range of corporate communications issues. We are seeking to position UCA far more strongly in the media, so the postholder will also focus on developing PR strategies to raise brand awareness and secure local, national and international press coverage. This role is global in scope, and the postholder will be responsible for raising awareness of UCA in key international markets and collaborating with overseas partners.

You will bring experience of creating and delivering PR strategies across global markets and a proven track record of achieving press coverage to enhance reputation. You will have experience of digital, print and social media and the ability to work with senior stakeholders on complex corporate communications. This role offers the opportunity to join a newly formed team in an exciting, dynamic and globally focused creative institution.
