What’s the job?
Innovate, engage and support – that’s what our members expect from us. We’ve come a long way and now we need you to help us engage NUS’ membership and wider audiences in our work. Developing effective creative communications plans and dealing with the press, we’re looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and motivated individual to help ensure NUS’ priorities and messages are clearly communicated to a range of internal and external audiences. So come and do something you love, somewhere a little bit different.
Who you are
· You’ll be totally at home working leading a team, working collaboratively to develop and implement NUS’ communications plan to promote campaigns, products and services across a variety of key communications channels.
· You’ll thrive on proactively maintaining NUS’ relationship with external stakeholders, including the press, and internal stakeholders via media/campaign management and engagement (e.g. bulk email campaign work and social campaign work).
· You’ll proactively champion, promote and support NUS both internally and externally.
We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates, as they are under-represented within NUS currently.
