About You

Are you interested in building mutually beneficial relationships with a vibrant, diverse community of stakeholders and graduates?  Would you relish the opportunity to make a difference by empowering alumni to act as positive role models to our students and ambassadors for the University?  

With excellent interpersonal skills you will have a great understanding of the power of relationship building and a proven track record of inspiring positive engagement with external stakeholders. An enthusiastic ‘can-do’ attitude, along with experience in shaping and developing a high performing communications service will quickly make you an invaluable member of our team.

An experienced and strong team manager, you will be able to support, motivate and coach, whilst retaining a focus on high performance and achieving targets.  

About the Role

In this role you will be joining a dynamic and creative team where no two days are ever the same. You will play a part in shaping and developing a high-performance communications service in order to help extend the reach and influence of the University, whilst also building mutually beneficial relationships with a diverse community of alumni and stakeholders.

You will benefit from 25 days annual leave plus 13 bank holiday and University closure days per annum. We aim to provide our staff with a positive work life balance and have a range of schemes in place to support this. Your continued professional development is as important to us as it is to you and we demonstrate this through our investment in your CPD activity. 

You will be automatically enrolled into the Local Government Pension Scheme and have access to our staff benefits platform, which provides you with discounts across the high street to help you save money on your everyday spending such as supermarket shopping, cinema tickets, dining out and more.
