Applications are invited for a Communications Coordinator in the Bennett Institute of Public Policy, an inter-disciplinary centre based in the Department of Politics and International Studies, which seeks to influence governments and the thinking of policy-makers whilst drawing upon some of the world-class research being developed across the University.

This role manages the Bennett Institute's communications and profile including developing its communications strategy and overseeing key deliverables. It delivers effective multi-channel publicity for the Institute's events and academic outputs, and editing research publications and online promotions. A central part of the role is managing its media relations, and being a spokesperson in relation to the Institute and its activities. The post-holder will oversee the development of an engaging programme of events for a range of audiences.

In its start-up phase the Institute developed a brand identity and high public profile. As we move into the next phase of our development, we are now looking for an enterprising and talented professional who can refine our communications strategy and ensure impact and visibility for the research projects and findings associated with the Institute.

The Institute is led by its inaugural Director Professor Michael Kenny and Professor Diane Coyle, the Bennett Chair of Public Policy. The post-holder will be working closely with them, the administrative co-ordinator and all of the researchers employed at the Institute, and some from the wider University.
