About This Opportunity

Under the guidance of the Corporate Publications Manager, the Publications Editor will manage (plan, develop, publish, distribute and promote) print and digital content for allocated projects, which may include content to engage with research audiences, alumni, or other corporate projects as they arise.

You will be experienced at using HTML, CSS, SEO, schemas, web design, and managing a CMS, and comfortable with using Google Analytics and other tools to analyse and report on content performance, and identify ways to improve audience reach and engagement.
