Job Purpose

The Communications Manager - Medical and Dental Sciences will play a lead role in shaping strategic communications for the University’s world-leading research spanning a wide range of disciplines.

Responsible for protecting and enhancing the reputation and profile of the University across all communications channels, including print, broadcast, online and social media. You will have extensive contacts within the health sciences, as well as the confidence, expertise and drive to create more.

With a keen understanding of the strategic direction of the institution and our priorities, you will be able to develop comprehensive communications plans for the promotion of that research, identify potential stories and liaise with research councils, journals and other relevant stakeholders before actively selling-in stories to the national and international media, or identifying and developing engaging content for use by the University.

You must be able to gain the trust and confidence of extremely eminent professors and assist them in conveying very complex research findings to lay audiences, while at the same time protecting the integrity of key messages to ensure important research findings are not mis-sold to the media or exaggerated by sensational headlines.

You will have experience of dealing with assertive and difficult individuals and challenging, influencing and negotiating with them in order to protect the interests and develop the profile of the University.

As part of the central communications team, you will also undertake general communications duties, answering the telephones, responding to incoming inquiries, managing film crew and journalists on campus, monitoring our media coverage, compiling weekly and monthly reports, contributing to the crisis communications work of the University and participating in the on-call duty rota.

Main Duties

This experienced Communications Manager has responsibility for developing research media engagement strategies for the College of Medical and Dental Sciences.

In line with research priorities for the College, you will develop comprehensive plans to communicate research findings to a range of stakeholders and the media.

Regularly liaising with colleagues at the most senior level of the organisation you will be able to demonstrate the confidence and expertise to build relationships of mutual trust and respect. This will include working closely with colleagues in partner organisations, particularly in relation to joint research projects.

With superb written and oral communication skills, you will be adept at producing communications material of the highest standard across a range of forms: online, publications, digital media (including podcasts and video production), as well as media briefing material for our senior leaders.

You will be experienced in turning complex scientific findings into fascinating content, without undermining the integrity of the science with exaggerated or unsubstantiated claims. You will be able to write press releases, opinion pieces and feature articles for a range of different media outlets both at home and overseas, and create content for our online channels.

Responsible for forward planning in your area, you will be able to identify opportunities for placing stories, features and developing media events that will raise the profile and reputation of the University, and strengthen working relations with key stakeholders and media figures.

Working with the Deputy Director of Communications, the post holder will identify potential media stars from across the institution and be instrumental in developing support and training packages to provide them with the skills to shine in the media and when communicating their research to the public. You will also be responsible for actively seeking and negotiating media opportunities for those media stars, subsequently.

You will also take responsibility for organising media events, along with the Stakeholder Relations Team, for example around Ministerial visits or major clinical breakthroughs.

Working in the External Relations directorate, you will work closely with the International Reputation team, Stakeholder and Public Relations team and the Reputation and Brand team to identify opportunities to support a range of activity. This will include development of rich digital content to support your press activity, thinking creatively about opportunities to support existing plans and supporting the development of a new wide ranging campaign way of working.

You will also be able to take a view of the communications’ needs across the entire institution if required.

The post holder will also have responsibility for the administrative roles that must be fulfilled by all members of the communications team. These include answering the press office phones and dealing swiftly and efficiently with reactive media inquiries, fielding the concerns of academic colleagues who have themselves been contacted by the press, out of hours working, including occasional weekend and evening working, plus on-call duties on a rota basis.

The post holder will also be expected to foster positive relations with communications colleagues at third party organisations to ensure that the interests of the University are paramount at all times. These will include working with funding bodies, charities, political offices, other universities, agencies, broadcasters, and freelance journalists.

You will have experience of crisis communications and be part of the team that deals with internal and external communications in a crisis for the University.

The University is committed to safeguarding and we promote safe recruitment practice, therefore all associated pre-employment checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed.
