Communications & Marketing Co-ordinator
Duration: Six Months fixed term contract
Hours: Full time, 36.5 hours per week
Salary: Starting from £24,413 up to £27,456 per annum, plus excellent holidays and contributory pension scheme
So, one minute you're creating some amazing content about Welcome Week for our social media channels; next you're making a video to introduce students to their newly elected Officers; then you're getting all the promotional material ready for a brand new club night in one of our commercial outlets; next up is taking a brief to raise awareness of our fantastic Advice Centre; and then you're coordinating cross-departmental, multi-channel communications to ensure our much anticipated Sports and Societies Balls are a sell-out. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
We're looking for a bright, confident, and enthusiastic Communications & Marketing Co-ordinator with strong social media skills and video filming/editing experience to join our team on a fixed term basis. With no two days the same, you'll plan, implement and deliver innovative campaigns and strong marketing communications to engage and delight our 25,000 members and support our departments.
This role is perfect for someone who likes variety, is creative and proactive; who takes real pride in producing high quality communications material and who is looking to gain further experience in a friendly and hard working environment.
Who are we?
Part business, part charity, part membership body, Warwick Students' Union is a vibrant place to work.
An independent organisation in our own right, we're professionally run, but different. Our talented teams support elected student leaders to make change, improve lives and fulfil potential; we empower them to make all this happen.
Warwick Students' Union is one of more than 550 students' unions across the country. And with more than 25,000 members, over 250 societies, 70 sports clubs, hundreds of elected representatives, a huge range of services and a bold strategy, we're one of the most exciting.
What's the job?
Reporting to the Communications and Marketing Manager, this office- based role will:
* Create, develop and implement communications and marketing solutions across the whole of the Students' Union for all our activities, services and events.
* Use our social media, as well as other digital and offline marketing channels, to communicate our key messages in a creative and timely way.
* Shoot and edit photos and video to create vibrant digital content that engages and informs our students.
* Work collaboratively with internal and external suppliers to produce engaging design work that reinforces the brand and strengths of Warwick SU in a coherent and consistent manner.
* Play a key role in increasing participation and engagement with key Warwick SU activities and services (Welcome week, Elections, Commercial outlet promotions, Advice Centre, etc.) as a result of effective and timely communication.
* Evaluate the effectiveness of communication and marketing activities and make recommendations.
Who you are:
You'll be an enthusiastic and determined person with a pragmatic approach to work in this dynamic and varied role. Your strengths will be your ability to communicate effectively to different audiences, along with your creativity, flexibility, and excellent organisational skills. You will have experience of working in a team environment and influencing others.
It's essential that you hold experience of digital media techniques, including social platforms and websites, together with the ability to create photo/video content. You will have produced high quality marketing copy and possess excellent communication skills. Your attention to detail will be second to none.
You'll be passionate about your work and have compassion and a commitment to empowering and supporting students. You'll be brave, bold and happy to come forward with new ideas and suggestions for different ways of doing things
But above all, you'll come to work with a spring in your step, excited about working in an environment where you will be encouraged to speak up, take ownership and make a difference.
The exact opposite of corporate, we're progressive, passionate individuals working to make a difference in unconventional workplaces.
In return for your enthusiasm and experience, we offer the flexibility for work-life balance, a competitive salary for the non-profit sector, a contributory defined contribution pension scheme and excellent holiday allowance.
We're committed to equality of opportunity for all. We welcome applications from individuals regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, gender, or disability status. We want to support diverse and inclusive work environments and are actively looking for people who share our values.
Whoever you are, we'd love to hear from you.
