Do you have exceptional motivational and organisational skills, to manage a team of in-house professional designers, together with natural creative ability and meticulous attention to detail?

We are looking for both strategic and operational support to the Head of Communication Production and the central Marketing team, leading all flagship creative projects and managing creative services, staff and resources.

You will be responsible for the briefing, planning, development and overseeing the delivery of design campaigns predominately for student recruitment materials but also corporate or other externally facing publications. You will need to ensure all outputs produced by the team are of a high quality, relevant, impactful and reflect the University’s brand, core messages and are compliant with the University’s identity management principles.

You will also manage the relationships with the external supplier framework designers.
As part of your role, managing the design team, you need to make sure that they keep abreast of new design developments, are challenged and instil a culture of sharing outputs.

You will be the first point of call for advisory design support where possible to colleagues across the University who are working with the internal team or external designers to ensure briefs are accurate and value for money is being achieved.
