We’re seeking an inspiring Marketing Manager to join our new Research and Enterprise Marketing team.   We’ve recently restructured our marketing department to better fulfil the University Strategy and created a dedicated Research and Enterprise team who will play a major part in delivering on our enterprise strategy and research impact plans.  The team will enhance the university’s reputation by promoting our cutting-edge research and the marketing of our income generating enterprise units.   

As a Research and Enterprise Marketing Manager, you'll help promote a range of collaborations that showcase our research impact and generate revenue for the university.  Working confidently alongside senior leaders to provide evidence-based strategic marketing advice and develop measurable marketing plans. You’ll get under the skin of a wide variety of projects, understand their target market, and develop compelling and competitive propositions for them. To deliver plans, you’ll engage with a network of specialist experts in commercial, digital and communications teams to meet our ambitious targets.

About you:

You’ll bring experience of planning and implementing marketing operations and the ability to do so in a large and complex organisation. Your skills in developing plans based on data and insight will underpin your creativity in designing innovative solutions.  Adept at relationship-building, you’ll be able to work proactively with academic and professional service stakeholders and across a network of internal and external teams to effectively deliver marketing plans. A background in higher education is not essential and we welcome applications from those who have gained their marketing experience in the commercial sector.  

What we can offer you 

We support a flexible approach to work and welcome hybrid working. With an understanding that there is a need to be on campus or visiting local business as part of the role.  

As well as additional benefits that will make your life easier, such as a generous holiday allowance and additional university closure days. We will support your long-term future too, with access to the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), subsidised health and fitness facilities and a range of discounts.

As a university we aim to create an inclusive environment that attracts, supports, and retains the best students and staff from diverse backgrounds and experiences from across the world. We are proactive in fostering a culture of inclusion, respect, and equality of opportunity. We believe that we can only truly meet our objectives if we are reflective of society, so we are passionate about creating a working environment in which you are free to bring your whole self to work.
