The Cultural Institute has three main aims: to increase pioneering research collaborations with our partners, to widen cultural engagement and participation, and to create more opportunities for – and build the skills of – our students. We aim to transform how higher education and cultural organisations work together to harness the power of culture, creating a more diverse, sustainable and resilient cultural sector and a more connected and engaged university.

Working within the Cultural Institute team and reporting to the Project Manager: Communications, you will have the chance to engage with our cultural and creative industries partners across the region.
The Information and Communications Assistant will undertake the delivery of the Cultural Institute’s communications strategy in collaboration with relevant staff, targeting key audiences both internally and externally.

You will also have strong communication skills and the ability to work effectively as part of a team; with a positive and proactive approach to problem solving and making improvements. You will be IT literate and able to work across web applications to manage digital content.
