Role

I work as part of the press team in raising the profile of the University in print, broadcast and electronic media.

I try to gain positive international, national, regional and local media coverage for the University through pro-active media work.

To do this, I build relationships with University faculty, other members of staff and relevant journalists to respond to media enquiries and produce press releases.

I also advise senior staff on media issues and interviews and can give guidance and support to academics on how they can promote their University research and raise their profile in the media.

See our web pages about working with the media.
