About the role

We're looking for a passionate and motivated communications professional to join our dynamic team. As Internal Communications Assistant you will play an important role in making sure our university community stays informed, engaged and connected - whether that's through collaborative campaigns, celebrating success or sharing important news.

What you can bring 

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate an ability to identity and create engaging content, have experience with or an interest in digital content management systems and be comfortable speaking to colleagues and students from across the university.

Assisting the team in gathering and implementing feedback will be a key part of the role, so an understanding of or interest in reporting, audience segmentation and metrics relating to emails and websites is important.

What we can offer you 

Our university is not just a place of academic excellence, but also a community that embraces inclusivity and support. We value our staff and offer a rewarding package that goes beyond just salary. At the University of Sunderland, we prioritise not only your professional growth but also your happiness and well-being.

  • Enjoy a generous annual leave entitlement of 31 days, along with an additional 5 closure days over the Christmas break and 8 Bank Holidays. 
  • Enrolment into our workplace pension scheme, ensuring your financial security for the future. 
  • Access to our “My Lifestyle Benefits Platform”, where you can enjoy online discounts at hundreds of retailers every day. Plus, take advantage of exclusive schemes that allow you to purchase a new car, bike, or technology at a discounted rate. 
  • Your health and well-being are important to us. That's why we provide access to discounted private medical insurance, health cash plans, and guidance on financial well-being.
  • For those with young children, our on-site nursery offers exceptional care and education for children from birth to school age, operating throughout the year.
  • Maintaining an active lifestyle is made easy with discounted membership for CitySpace Fitness, our state-of-the-art facility for sports and social activities. 

Equality, diversity & inclusion 

We strongly believe that an inclusive university, where a diverse range of individuals feel valued and have equal opportunity to get into work and reach their potential, is good for our staff, students, university, and society.

Our work on equality, diversity and inclusivity has never been more important. We believe inclusivity is an essential value at the heart of what we do, and we want all our staff to be part of that journey with us.

Our recent staff survey conducted in 2023 showed that 97% of our staff believed that we were committed to achieving an inclusive university.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 17th April 2024 (23.59 GMT).

Interviews/assessments are likely to take place on Thursday 25th April 2024
