Communications Officer, Royal Roads University, Victoria, BC, Canada. Closing date: Sunday, November 26, 2017 – 18:00.
Under the strategic direction set by the vice-president, Communications and Advancement, you will contribute to the work of the department and university to strengthen its reputation and its relationships with key audiences locally, regionally and nationally. The communications department provides a centre for communications in five service areas: university communications; internal communications; news services; media relations; and editorial services.
Under the departmental direction of the senior communications manager and functional direction of the senior communications officer, you will create and deliver communications materials and communications activities in support of the university’s and department’s strategic goals and priorities. You will also collaborate with and offer intra- and cross-departmental communications support for schools, programs and units, including advancement, alumni relations, stakeholder and government relations, marketing and recruitment. You will also engage in social media functions, as well as media relations and issues management activities, and at times will provide communications services and counsel to the Royal Roads executive team.
By increasing awareness and profile of Royal Roads and its value proposition, (evidenced by faculty, student and alumni successes, its distinct learning and teaching model, market-responsive programs, applied research, initiatives, and events), you will support the work of the department to protect and strengthen Royal Roads’ reputation and build positive third-party support for enrolment growth and fundraising potential. Your role therefore supports the university’s six goals – in particular the goal of achieving strong partnerships, supportive to its alumni and the communities it serves.
