Communications Officer

University College London - UCL Office of the Vice-Provost (Development)

Duties and Responsibilities

UCL is London’s Global University. We do things differently here and we take the long view. We are not afraid to take risks. We remain focused on making a major contribution to the long term benefit of humanity. We have launched ‘It’s All Academic’, UCL’s bold new global Philanthropy and Engagement Campaign to raise £600m to support students, research and the transformation of our campus (www.ucl.ac.uk/campaign). It will enable us to achieve more than ever before to secure our position as one of the world’s top higher education institutions.

From fighting dementia to ensuring generations of students reach their full potential: It's All Academic. UCL’s ideas and discoveries are shaping the future, improving lives and having a massive impact on London and the wider world. There has never been a more exciting time to join our Development office. We are a team of exceptionally ambitious, creative and passionate individuals who work together to achieve remarkable things with a global impact, and we would love for you to be part of this exciting journey and our success.

This is your chance to play a pivotal role in delivering our Campaign. As the Communications Officer you will contribute to the delivery and evaluation of a wide range of targeted content for all of our internal and external audiences.

Key requirements

As the successful candidate you will possess enthusiasm for telling the story of the impact of philanthropy and engagement to a variety of audiences through a range of channels and styles, with experience of producing excellent written and visual work that speaks to a range of audiences.

This is an ideal role if you are an individual with a high degree of initiative and enthusiasm, with a willingness to learn new skills. Who is just as comfortable producing background messaging and material for colleagues as you are engaging staff, students, supporters, volunteers and alumni through impactful social media campaigns, newsletters or online storytelling.

We offer agile working and flexibility around working hours – this role could be part-time or a job share. We also value mutual respect and collaboration, and have a strong customer-service ethic. Expectations are high and we work hard, but the rewards are huge.
