The role

We are looking for a creative Marketing and Communications Manager to lead on the development of the reputation and profile of the newly launched Institute of Coding (IoC), and to establish engagement with a range of audiences.

This is an exciting opportunity to get involved in a national organisation from the outset - designing and leading the development and delivery of IoC’s marketing and communication strategy.

You will be responsible for enhancing the profile of the IoC amongst local, regional and national audiences and will contribute to its long-term sustainability. You will need to effectively engage key (and in some cases niche) audiences with compelling content in order to further strategic objectives, working closely with colleagues across the many university, industry and third party organisations involved in this exciting new venture.

To be successful in this role, you will have experience in working for a complex organisation, developing marketing and communication strategies, delivering and evaluating them. You will also have extensive digital media experience, and experience in managing agencies and external teams to support your work – from PR teams to digital and web agencies. Ideally you’ll have experienced collaborating with communications teams within government and across a range of different types of organisations.

The IoC

The IoC (IoC) www.instituteofcoding.org is a new national initiative, led by the University of Bath, which brings together a range of universities, industry, training providers and professional bodies to address the UK’s digital skills gaps.

The Institute’s vision is to enhance the education and employability of every IoC learner, and ensure that employers and individuals across the UK can access the skills they need to compete in the global digital economy. This unique and innovative collaboration has been made possible with £20m from the Higher Education Funding Council for England and match funding from universities and industry partners.

Led by the University of Bath, the IoC will develop and deliver innovative, industry-focused higher education across the UK. It will develop industry accredited degree schemes and short courses aimed at professionals, as well as working to widen the participation of women, returners to work and hard to reach groups. To help fill the UK’s digital skills shortage, the Institute and post-holder, will identify and work with key sectors and professions to enhance the provision of these skills.

This post is full time (36.5 hours per week) and is being offered on a fixed term contract basis with an anticipated expiry date of 31 March 2021.

Informal enquiries can be made to Dr. Denise Cooke, Institute of Coding, on 01225 383852 or at d.cooke@bath.ac.uk.
