  • can build an internal network of colleagues to call upon for ideas and SME contacts, plus keep them clued in about what you’re up to (especially all the successes you’re having)
Does this sound like you? Then pull out your CV and a couple of writing or editing samples and send them our way.
Qualifications

 

Other stuff you need to know:
  • Degree plus 5+ years’ experience in information science, library science, journalism/communication, community management or related, preferably in a higher education environment
