Be a part of something amazing
A creative communicator?
Excited about working across nine world-class collections?
The eight University of Cambridge Museums and Botanic Garden (UCM) represent the UK's highest concentration of internationally-important collections outside London. With more than five million works of art, artefacts and specimens, the collections have supported nearly three hundred years of investigation into the world around us. Today, they bring together people from across the globe to explore the big questions: from the earliest forms of life to the future of our planet. We work together to deepen understanding of our world, inspire new thinking, and address local and global challenges.
Based within the central UCM Partnerships Team, the Communications Coordinator plays a key role in promoting the University of Cambridge Museums to the public, media, stakeholders, funders and other institutions. They'll use their creativity, communications skills and engaging storytelling to engage audiences with our programmes and develop our shared online presence, as well as communicate the impact of our work to partners and funders.
Our family of university museums and collections is richly diverse, with institutions ranging in size, scale and subject matter. Some of our museums are without a dedicated communications specialist, while others have their own Communications Teams. We're seeking somebody who can work strategically and flexibly to support communications and audience development across the consortium, in partnership with existing teams, and provide support and guidance for museums without their own dedicated staff. They'll be able to support strong partnership working through friendly and effective internal communications.
The ideal candidate will bring practical and demonstrable experience of communications and content creation, a creative and experimental approach, and familiarity with digital platforms and software packages (Wordpress, Drupal and Adobe) - or a willingness to learn.
In return we offer an encouraging and supportive environment, an attractive pension scheme, generous holiday allowance and many employee benefits such as a shopping discounts scheme.
To help support our staff to thrive both professionally and personally, we have adopted a system of hybrid working, meaning staff are empowered to split their time between in-person collaboration and remote working. The frequency of remote working may vary and will be subject to discussion with your line manager. We think this role will need you to be based mainly onsite (in the office or on the ground in the museums or Botanic Garden), but are open to discussing all options.
We welcome applications from individuals who wish to be considered for part-time working or other flexible working arrangements.
Informal enquiries are welcomed by Dr Hannah Price, Head of UCM Partnerships, via email@example.com
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 31 March 2026 in the first instance.
Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a basic disclosure (criminal records check) check and a security check.
Interviews for the role will be held: w/c 13th November 2023
