We have an exciting opportunity to join the University of Worcester’s talented Media Relations team. We are seeking an experienced PR or journalism professional to help strengthen the University’s reputation as an outstanding place to study. This is a senior role, working daily alongside a range of colleagues, including the Vice Chancellor (the head of the university), to enhance the University’s reputation as a trusted and reliable source of comment on UK current and social affairs, and positioning Worcester as a thought-leading university.

Having worked extensively in PR, or as a journalist, you will have the ability to represent complex information in an engaging way. Excellent interpersonal and networking skills are also vital.

You will be responsible for managing a small, friendly team helping to position the University appropriately to both internal and external audiences. You should have strong managerial expertise and the ability to inspire, set direction and coordinate. You will also have the opportunity to work across the wider Communications and External Affairs department, contributing to film, social media and wider publications, sharing positive stories of individual success, research and new developments.

This is a varied role which comes at an exciting time for the University with the launch of a new Medical School along with several other new developments on the horizon.

Some out of office and weekend working will be necessary and we are open to discussions about hybrid working.

Informal enquiries about the post are welcome. Please contact Sally Jones (Head of Press and Public Affairs) at [email protected]

We value diversity and wish to promote equality at all levels
