About this Role
The Communications and Engagement Officer will play a key role in developing the Society’s reach and impact. At the core of the job is our Fellowship – ensuring that their achievements are communicated, that they can engage effectively with the Society, and that our annual call for new Fellows reaches the most diverse audience possible.
The Society is also keen to reach out to people at an earlier stage of their careers, and to schools and the wider public. The Officer will maximise opportunities to reach these audiences, in line with the LSW communications plan currently being developed. They will also take responsibility for the Society’s website, social media channels and press coverage, as well as ensuring a strong presence at relevant external events. Oral and written Welsh language skills would be an advantage for this role but are not essential.
