This is part time (15 hours per week) fixed term (12 months) vacancy with the Directorate of Corporate Affairs.

In recent years, Oxford Brookes has undertaken an ambitious programme to meet its strategic commitments in further improving the student experience. This has become established as the PESE.

You will:

  • Research, devise and implement communications plans to support the PESE;
  • Work with project teams to incorporate PESE into academic activities and the student experience more broadly;
  • Present outward facing projects to the local community interest groups as well as pro-actively promoting achievements in the local media;
  • Ensure that communications on PESE are well co-ordinated with consistent messages both for the Programme as a whole and with wider student experience activities;
  • Review, update and manage social media and website communications related to the eight projects.

You should have:

  • Degree level qualification;
  • Experience of liaising and negotiating with a wide range of stakeholders, including those at senior levels;
  • Experience of planning and delivering communications activities in a large, complex organisation;
  • Experience of using social media in a work context;
  • Knowledge and interest in student experience issues.
