The University of Sussex is looking for a Digital Content Manager to join its Digital and Creative Media Team.

We want someone who has a passion for copy and rich media, can develop a killer content strategy, and is adept at managing the needs and expectations of a large number of stakeholders.

You will be the first person to hold this role, and will therefore help establish clear strategies and processes around content development, management and governance.

If you’re highly organised, have a proven track record of delivering digital content strategies, and truly understand how creative can deliver business objectives, we want you to join our team.

You will be managing our team of four Web Content Officers, and will work closely with our copywriters in the Publications and Branding Team, as well as with content creators across the University. A key part of your role will be to establish and maintain strong editorial control, even where responsibility for creating content is devolved more widely than your immediate team.

You will work closely with the User Experience Manager as we push forward with an exciting digital redevelopment project, and with our new Digital Analyst to optimise the performance of our digital content. You’ll support our Marketing and CRM teams to take our campaign activity to the next level. In addition, you will need excellent client and customer service skills, working as you will alongside our 11 Academic Schools and Professional Services.

This is an exciting time to join the Digital and Creative Media Team within the Student Recruitment and Marketing Division at Sussex. The University has recently appointed a new Vice-Chancellor, has launched a refreshed brand identity, and is starting the journey toward an evidence-based, digital-first culture. The Digital Content Manager role is pivotal to this, and will be expected to provide a detailed knowledge of the changing nature of engagement with digital content, both within higher education and across other sectors.
