My role has three main elements: web management, event management and design.

I am the sole web editor for the School of Education and Social Work and, as such, am responsible for maintaining its two Departmental websites and its (currently) six research centre websites:
Centre for International Education
Centre for Higher Education and Equity Research
Centre for Teaching and Learning Research
Centre for Innovation and Research in Childhood and Youth
Centre for Social Work Innovation and Research
Centre for Innovation and Research in Wellbeing

The School hosts many events over the course of the academic year, including research seminars, parties/celebrations, conferences and workshops. In addition to assisting in the planning of many of these, I manage the weekly (during term time) Open Seminar Series which comprise research seminars hosted by each of the School's six research centres. These events run for an hour and a half and take the format of a presentation (of approx an hour) followed by Q&A (of approx. half an hour). As these are all 'open' events, prior booking is not required and attendance is encouraged by students and faculty, as well as external partners and colleagues. It is sometimes possible to join these events live remotely. Details are available on the Department websites, as well as the host research centre's website.

I design and produce the School's promotional materials. These include posters, brochures, leaflets, handbooks, newsletters and annual reports.

In addition to the above, I take care of Prospectus updates and G drive access for School staff, manage the School's social media channels, work closely with Marketing and Media Relations to promote news internally and externally, and provide support and cover for the Head of School Coordinator and School Administrators.
