In 2020, Southampton embarked on an ambitious and exciting project to enhance and improve its web presence. This project has delivered several significant milestones, and is now moving to better highlight and celebrate our academic research. To achieve this important goal, partnership and co-creation of compelling and accurate web content with our academic colleagues is critical.

Two opportunities in each of the University’s five faculties have been created to lead this engagement. Together, these roles will work with academic and professional service colleagues to represent Southampton online in the best possible light.

Each Faculty Digital Information (Content and Data) Manager will work with colleagues to describe our research and education activity effectively and clearly. With experience of postgraduate research/study or working in a research environment, you will apply your significant knowledge of a research-led university to creating content and understanding value for our online stakeholders. You will be a capable writer who is comfortable in a wide-ranging research environment; and will be able to form successful relationships with a large number of academic stakeholders. Your role will create content which is engaging, accurate and representative. You will be able to offer specialist advice and guidance from your acquired knowledge and experience; and help to identify faculty requests relating to digital presence, deciding whether the change is in data or managed content and acting accordingly.

Each Faculty Administrator (Web Content) will engage with academic and professional services colleagues to coordinate and prioritise the creation of essential content through liaison, communication and engagement. You will play a central role in offering the support and advice colleagues need to make their contributions, for example offering briefings on how to update personal staff profiles. You will monitor and report on progress against project milestones, making recommendations on how to progress our objectives. Your liaison between web development professionals and faculty colleagues will simplify and explain our processes and enable constructive feedback and continuous improvement of our work.

In both roles, your effective interpersonal skills with staff from across the academic community and professional services both within and externally to your Faculty will ensure the creation, implementation, maintenance, and support of outstanding digital content.

Successful candidates will be able to work flexibly and remotely and will be expected to spend at least 60% of their contracted hours working on campus. Flexibility will be required should the business need require a greater on-site presence. These positions are being offered on a permanent basis and are available from 0.8 - 1.0 FTE to support flexibility in work.
