Science and Impact Communications Manager

Queen Mary University of London is a leading global university with a difference. We are one of the UK’s top research universities, committed to improving social injustice and achieving the previously unthinkable. 

The School of Medicine and Dentistry (SMD) is a significant constituent of the University, which is organised into seven separate Institutes.  Based in the Institute of Population Health Sciences, the newly established Centre for Clinical Effectiveness and Health Data Science carries out research to improve population health, reduce health inequalities, and innovate, develop, and deliver quality improvement programmes using electronic health records from primary and secondary health care and other sources.  

The Centre includes the Clinical Effectiveness Group - a team of health and informatics professionals who work with general practitioners, commissioners and local authorities providing health and care for the north east London population of 2.2 million residents.  

We are looking for a highly skilled communications professional to join our team as Science and Impact Communications Manager. Reporting to the Centre Lead, the post holder will provide science and impact communication support by developing and implementing a Centre communications strategy for a variety of audiences and using a full range of media to ensure the Centre’s work, research outputs, and impacts are widely disseminated locally, nationally and internationally.
In addition to having experience of communicating complex issues, the successful candidate will be confident with data and have a proven ability to create web and social media content, write articles for specialist audiences and in accessible language to non-specialists, and be able to manage social media channels.

The post is based at the Whitechapel Campus in London and is full-time for two years in the first instance. 

The starting salary will be Grade 4, in the range of £34,220 to £37,076 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

We offer competitive salaries, access to a generous pension scheme, 30 days’ leave per annum (pro-rata for part-time/fixed-term), a season ticket loan scheme and access to a comprehensive range of personal and professional development opportunities. In addition, we offer a range of work life balance and family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, and campus facilities including an on-site nursery at the Mile End campus.
