The University of Manchester Library is one of only five National Research Libraries and the third largest academic library in the UK. Our vast and rich collections (both print and increasingly digital) help us to deliver a world-class library and information service for the University of Manchester.

As part of the Library's Strategic Marketing team, the successful candidate will focus on initiating, creating, developing and delivering marketing and communications activity to support the Library strategy. 

We are looking for an experienced marketer with a passion for communications methodology and creativity. With a fresh innovative approach you will be keen to support your colleagues to create and deliver their messages through smart and effective channels.

  3. Inclusion - Creating an inclusive culture by recognising each other's differences and strengths
  4. Responsibility - Taking collective responsibility to achieve our shared goals
  5. Support - Delighting in our success whilst supporting each other through adversity

It's important that all colleagues share in this vision and are committed to helping create a working environment that is both rewarding and fulfilling. Please consider this before applying for this role.
