TALENT is a programme which leads and influences change to advance status and opportunity for technical skills, roles and careers in UK higher education and research. It is led by the Midlands Innovation (MI) consortium of eight universities in collaboration with key stakeholder and industry partners. It is the largest ever investment into technicians in higher education, whose specialist skills often go unrecognised despite the crucial role they play in the success of universities and the growth of the UK economy. 

This successful high-profile project is seeking a Marketing & Communications Manager to support continued planning and execution of marketing content and campaigns, with a particular focus on impact as the project draws to a close in February 2025. You will work with a strong project team internally, and externally with colleagues across the eight Midlands Innovation universities and beyond. You will be delivery-focused and will take a hands-on approach to help secure a legacy for the TALENT project. 

This is a secondment opportunity and is only available to staff employed at the 8 Midlands Innovation Universities.  Please apply through the University of Nottingham. (The role holder will be seconded from their current institution.) 

The position is offered as a secondment to 28th February 2025. Hours of work are part time - 2.5 days (7.25 hours per day) - with a flexible hybrid approach of working at home and in the office - arrangements to be agreed locally. Prior agreement must be sought from both your current line manager and the manager of your substantive post, if you are already undertaking a secondment role.
