Junior Communication Manager

£42,900 - £42,900

Job Description

SSTP Junior Communication Manager Job Role

Job description

The Student Success Transformation Programme (SSTP) will be an ambitious programme of work designed to transform the educational provision and overall student experience at King’s College London. The programme is in its early stages of scoping and design, but aims to deliver significant change, working with our education community to address areas of potential improvement as identified by students and staff. It recognises the vital importance of enabling a thriving staff community who can in turn provide an excellent experience for our students during their time at King’s. 


Working closely with the Service Team within the Strategic Programmes Office, the Junior Communications Manager role is to manage and maintain the communication plan for the portfolio.  This will involve coming up with content proposals, creating collateral and writing updates on the SSTP, in order to keep stakeholders informed and engaged. Dependent on the programme requirements at the time, the role holder will be responsible for creating a wide variety of content using a range of formats to upload to the SSTP Sharepoint site, writing content for posts to be displayed on Viva Engage (Yammer), blogs and university-wide platforms such as the newsletter. Maintenance of these channels and analysing engagement will be an integral part of the role, in addition to the creation of the content itself.

The role holder will work in close collaboration with the Communications Project Manager and should expect to work reactively and autonomously at times, while also taking responsibility for the overall execution of the established communications plan. Brand and style guidelines will need to be followed across all forms of communication, however, there is room for creativity in this role with regard to design and delivery format of content.



  • Create SSTP “stories”: produce clear and engaging copy based on programme updates, maintaining the university’s brand guidelines, tone of voice and house style.

  • Liaise with external agencies to develop and implement specific SSTP branding; create a programme brand and style guidelines in accordance with this, for use by wider team.

  • In addition to written content, create videos, GIFs and posters to supplement the SSTP brand.

  • Build positive working relationships with the Service Team (responsible for Change Management) and the SSTP’s key stakeholders in order to understand and absorb the essence of the SSTP and create relevant, fully aligned content.

  • Develop and maintain the SSTP Sharepoint site.

  • Post content to a range of channels in order to maximise reach, e.g. Sharepoint, Viva Engage (formerly Yammer), blog, etc. and manage any engagement responses we may receive.

  • Independently manage and maintain the pace/regularity of updates, based on user engagement experience in similar or comparable roles.

  • Evaluate and report on communications and engagement – the role holder will be expected to implement ways of measuring engagement rates, to escalate concerns and proactively work to maintain/increase engagement where appropriate.

  • Share best practice and methodology with the SSTP Service Team for future use.
