Join the University of Bath's Advancement Office as our Alumni Communications Officer.

About the role:

Working with the Alumni Communications Manager, you'll produce engaging content across multiple channels including social media, the alumni blog, website, BA2 magazine and donor impact publication.

The role is as varied and creative as the communications you'll produce. One moment you could be writing about our globally impactful research in areas such as sustainability and health, and the next you could be reporting on our Olympic medal-winning student-athletes.

This is a full-time role, working 36.5 hours per week on a permanent basis, with a mixture of home and office working.

For an informal discussion about this role please contact Jodie Williamson via [email protected].

About you:

As Alumni Communications Officer, you'll bring experience of writing professionally for online and print, enabling you to engage and inform our community of over 150,000 graduates and supporters worldwide.

You'll have an eye for a good story and an eagerness to get stuck in and interview alumni, students and researchers to produce quality content to deadline. You should be organised, work well in a team and successfully manage priorities.

About us:

The Advancement Office supports a network of over 150,000 University of Bath alumni across 170 countries, as well as our wider community of supporters who generously give their time, expertise and philanthropy to the University.

Fundraising is one of the main aspects of our work. Donor gifts transform students' lives through removing barriers to education, and advance important research in sustainability, health and wellbeing, and digital.

We keep in touch with our community of alumni and friends, informing them of the latest University news and events, and providing unique benefits and services.
