Communication and Events Officer
The post is permanent and offered full time or 80% FTE.
Reuben College, the University of Oxford’s newly established graduate college, is looking to appoint a smart, skilled and creative communications and Events Officer to join the administrative team in its inaugural year with students. You will work with fellows, staff and students to promote the College’s values, academic work and cultural life, primarily through managing the College website, social media channels, and print materials. You will also support the College in organising and promoting its growing number of internal and external events.
The role offers fantastic opportunities to grow and develop, as we work to build a community of people and practice that recognises the importance of equality and diversity in our community and in our intellectual endeavours. Your activities will be central to achieving the college’s vision of creating a scholarly home which actively promotes entrepreneurial thinking, collaborative working and interdisciplinary exchange. To succeed in this role, you will need to be a confident self-starter, with excellent interpersonal and influencing skills ensuring you are able to build and maintain effective working relationships with academics, students, staff and key stakeholders. Ideally, you will already have significant experience developing and delivering effective communications, engaging audiences via social media, as well as proven planning, organisational and multi-tasking skills.
Reuben will be a vibrant community that draws together students and faculty from different disciplines to explore some of the big questions of our time. The college will have 120 graduate students in its inaugural year starting autumn 2021, rising thereafter to up to 200+ students per year. As this is a new college, there is an exciting opportunity for all college members to play a vital role in shaping the Reuben College ethos and the activities that support it. We recognise that our community is enhanced and strengthened by the diversity of our staff and students, and we are committed to embedding and advancing equal rights and mutual respect as we build our college community.
