Faculty or Directorate: Marketing, Recruitment and Engagement

Location: Gipsy Lane Site, Headington Campus

Vacancy ID: 130918


We’re looking for an experienced and passionate senior marketing and communications specialist.

Working as part of our multi-disciplined Strategic Marketing and Digital team, you’ll spend time getting to know and understand what’s special about our programmes and the work of the Faculty. From this you’ll create Faculty marketing plans, programme strategies, communication strategies, as well as support the Faculty with the wider University level initiatives, like Open Days and Clearing.

You’ll be comfortable with data and be adept at translating data into opportunities. You’ll enjoy working in a collaborative team in an agile environment.

We’re looking for candidates with experience in delivering effective communications strategy, as well as advertising and brand campaign development.

You will need excellent communication and time-management skills, and you’ll be able to take people with you thanks to your collaborative approach and enthusiastic nature. You’ll be comfortable leading on brand development and advertising strategies, and you’ll bring your experience and understanding of the sector to elevate the reputation of the University and the Faculty.

You’ll be an advocate for the Humanities and Social Sciences, and you’ll understand what’s special about our disciplines in developing critical and creative thinkers, socially conscious and active global citizens, and lifelong learners and leaders who help shape the world around us. Working closely with the Faculty’s Executive team, managers, and academic colleagues you’ll deliver a wide range of marketing interventions aligned to priorities.
