The University’s social media presence has grown phenomenally in the last year, and we’re now looking for a Social Media Support Officer to support the delivery of an ambitious social strategy for the year ahead!

You will be a passionate social media champion (who can share that passion with others!), with experience using Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. You will have a strong creative side, and be able to stay organised across a wide variety of content creation projects. It will be an exceptionally varied role, ideal for someone looking to take a step up in their social media career.

You will have a degree in marketing, media, journalism or PR and have a broad understanding of student life and the university cycle.

If you want to become part of an award-winning team, and have a genuine passion for digital storytelling and promoting the university, we’d love to hear from you.
