About the role

This role provides an exciting and unique opportunity to enhance internal communications at the Mathematical Institute, a thriving academic department with an outstanding reputation for its teaching and research, whilst also shaping the future direction of interdisciplinary collaboration at the Mathematical, Physical, and Life Sciences (MPLS) Divisional Office.

Splitting your time 50/50 between the two friendly and dynamic teams, you will bring extensive experience across digital and social media communications to drive innovation and excellence in communication and engagement practices. You will be an important connection across both entities, spearheading initiatives to foster inclusivity, diversity, and equity, and boosting student and staff engagement on various programmes including surveys, events and wellbeing projects.

Your responsibilities will include developing and implementing strategic internal communication plans, advising senior staff and academics on communications, and overseeing the successful execution of initiatives crucial to the growth and cohesion of the Mathematical Institute and MPLS Divisional Office.

This role offers an exciting opportunity to shape the future direction of interdisciplinary collaboration and communication within the vibrant landscape of the MPLS Division.

We proudly hold a departmental Athena SWAN Silver Award and an institutional Race Equality Charter Bronze Award, which guide our progress towards advancing racial and gender equality. As part of our strategic aim to improve staff equality and diversity, we would particularly welcome applications from BME candidates, who are currently under-represented in positions of this type within the department.

What We Offer

As an employer, we genuinely care about our employees' wellbeing and this is reflected in the range of benefits that we offer including:

• An excellent contributory pension scheme

• 38 days annual leave

• A comprehensive range of childcare services

• Family leave schemes

• Cycle loan scheme

• Discounted bus travel and Season Ticket travel loans

• Membership to a variety of social and sports clubs

This role also offers the opportunity for hybrid working, and the team are open to discussing a working pattern that works for you.
