£22,105 to £23,850 per annum

Permanent, 37 hours a week

Are you excited by the opportunity to create amazing work that engages and celebrates our 38,000 strong community of students at Manchester Met?

Be a part of our Marketing and Communications team and deliver projects and campaigns that have a positive impact on students, staff, and stakeholders.

Who are we?

Located in the heart of Manchester, The Union is part business, part charity, part membership body. Operating independently from Manchester Metropolitan University, our aim is to support and represent each one of our student members. Each year our growing team of over 60 full time and up to 150 part-time staff, work alongside elected student leaders to make change, improve lives and help fulfil student potential.

Winner of the NUS Campaigning Award 2017, The Union is one of 550 students’ unions across the country, and we’re one of the most exciting - with over 38,000 student members and 150 student groups, a huge range of services and a bold strategy.

What’s the job?

You’ll be the go-to person in The Union’s Marketing and Communications team for all things social media - you’ll facilitate the production of original, engaging digital content that builds affinity for and raises awareness of The Union. This role is perfect for someone with a clear understanding of what works best across multiple social platforms and has the creativity to bring new ideas to life. You will also support The Union’s marketing campaigns and objectives by planning and delivering a range of briefs and projects, including web, email, and print.

What are we looking for?

Someone creative. You will be full of ideas, happy to experiment and have a good editorial judgement. You will use your up-to-date knowledge on the latest social media trends and updates to ensure high levels of engagement and channel growth. A team-orientated person who can build relationships and work successfully with people at all levels, you will work closely with staff across The Union and University and will support the recruitment and supervision of a growing team of student Content Creators.

Why apply?

There has never been a better time to work for The Union. Based just off Oxford Road, in the centre of vibrant Manchester, The Union will train you thoroughly, reward you well and encourage you to build a long-term career that inspires you.

The exact opposite of corporate, we’re progressive, creative individuals working to make a difference in unconventional workplaces. In return for your passion and experience, we offer the flexibility for work-life balance, a competitive salary for the non-profit sector and excellent holiday allowance. We’re absolutely open to considering requests for job share or part-time working.

We’re committed to equality of opportunity for all. We welcome applications from individuals regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, gender, or disability status.

We want to support diverse and inclusive work environments and are actively looking for people who share our values. Whilst not a requirement, we are particularly welcoming to BAME candidates within the Union as we are underrepresented.
