Universitas 21 (U21) is a global network of world leading, research-intensive universities that supports its members to connect, collaborate, exchange knowledge and ultimately, achieve more together.

The landscape of international Higher Education has changed irreversibly due to the Covid-19 pandemic and so have our members’ needs, wants and challenges. We are therefore seeking to appoint an experienced communications professional who can design and deliver a communications and engagement portfolio that takes U21’s member offer to the next level and provides an unrivalled return on our staff and students’ involvement.

You have worked within the university sector, are tenacious, enthusiastic and creative and are looking for an opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge in a small, agile but impactful organisation. You enjoy keeping abreast of emerging trends in international education, have extensive knowledge of digital communications and actively seek to develop strong and mutually beneficial relationships with others.

We will offer you a dynamic and non-bureaucratic environment, a high performing, cohesive team and the opportunity to work flexibly, including an office located on the University of Birmingham’s gorgeous Edgbaston campus. On a day-to-day basis, you will source and write compelling copy, manage and optimise U21’s online presence and activities, raise U21’s external profile through relevant PR activity and utilise key metrics to evaluate and refine U21’s communications strategy and operational plan.

The closing date is Sunday 31st October and we would be very happy to have informal conversations with anyone that thinks that they would excel in this role. All applicants must complete the application form below – applications with only a CV and covering letter will not be considered. Interviews are likely to take place (in the evening or early morning to accommodate an international panel) w/c 15th November 2021.

Please contact if you have any questions or would like to arrange a chat.
