The University of Sussex is looking to recruit a Communications Officer to play a key role in both social media and communications planning. This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious communications professional with experience in social media content and community management, who is also adept at spotting where coordinated communications activity can create even greater impact. This new role sits within the University’s Communications, Marketing and Advancement division and comes at an exciting time of change for the division and University.  The Communications Officer will work across two key areas; supporting on social media to enhance how the University connects and communicates with its online audiences (and reaches new ones); as well as overseeing the planning of all external and internal communications, working across teams to help the University become more strategic in its approach.

The post holder will be a key member of a high-performing communications team with a focus on engaging audiences with our ground-breaking research, inspiring student stories and ambitious sustainability goals. This will be done partly through social media - supporting the PR and Social Media Manager on creating and sharing stand-out content across all channels – but also by owning a content calendar and strategic communications timetable, taking a long-term approach and ensuring all activity is planned in conjunction with teams in marketing, communications and digital.

The Communications Officer should be plugged into the latest social media trends and will be confident in identifying new opportunities for the University, both internal and external.Strong written and verbal communications skills are vital, as is the ability to evaluate and report back on communications successes. The Communications Officer will compile and disseminate regular reports, demonstrating an understanding of evaluation systems and best practices.

The ideal candidate will be used to working in a busy communications, digital or newsroom environment and will be confident in juggling tight and competing deadlines.  They will be highly organized, creative and proactive in their approach, with a proven ability to co-ordinate activity across teams. Evening and weekend working may be required during busy times.

Please contact Stephanie Allen at s.l.allen@sussex.ac.uk for informal enquiries.
