Social Media and Events Assistant, Coventry University. 2 year, fixed term contract, renewable. Deadline: July 17, 2017
Following the significant successes of the RISING15 and RISING16 Global Peace Forum events which showcased the vision and ambition of the University and the City of Coventry in the field of peace, the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations is developing RISING as a permanent and regular feature of Coventry’s global footprint. The Centre is now seeking to appoint a dedicated Social Media and Events Assistant to support the ongoing development of RISING.
RISING aims to create a global platform to raise awareness and develop responses to the threats to peace and opportunities for peaceful relations. Convening thought leaders and experienced policy-makers from around the world, RISING seeks to inform and inspire, pushing forward new ways of thinking about peace and conflict in our turbulent world.
This post will support RISING and the delivery of the Global Peace Forum and other RISING events by driving the social media campaign to increase awareness and assisting with event planning and logistics for large scale and high profile programmes held in Coventry and around the world.
With a track record of using social media as part of a marketing campaign and with experience of event planning and management, you will have strong communication skills and be a highly organised individual able to juggle a busy workload. The post holder will be expected to demonstrate a high level of motivation and interest to engage with the subject matter and focus of RISING and CTPSR in general, and should be able to develop appropriate website and social media content from a variety of sources, including academic literature.
