University of Sheffield

International Marketing and Communications Officer

The work of Global Engagement supports the vision of the University to be a globally leading university. Colleagues within the team work on a number of international areas and lead on and support, among others, overseas student recruitment, student exchanges and summer schools, staff mobility, international partnerships and research opportunities.


We are seeking to appoint a talented, enthusiastic and proactive marketing professional to support international marketing and communications for Global Engagement, working closely with colleagues from Corporate Communications. We strive to ensure we move ahead with new and creative initiatives, whilst also building on the strong activities already underway. This is particularly important given increasing competition for the best students at all levels of study and all marketing and communications activity needs to align with the University’s strategic plan for 2015-22.


You will be joining a University ranked in the top 100 universities in the world, with an outstanding student experience and an institutional commitment to internationalisation. We aim to recruit a diverse cohort of students prepared for the challenges of higher education at a selective institution, irrespective of background.


You will have experience and expertise in marketing and communications, with the ability to be able to support decisions regarding the most appropriate marketing channels to assist and enhance our international recruitment and partnerships work, alongside the promotion of opportunities for incoming and outgoing international student activities.


The successful candidate will have a good honours degree (or equivalent experience) with experience of designing and delivering marketing materials and using social media successfully for marketing and communication purposes. You will have the ability to work independently, with colleagues from across the department as well as with external stakeholders. You will report into the International Marketing and Communications Manager.


We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.


We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
