Six-month contract to cover maternity leave

Occasional weekend and evening work

The Centre for Innovation and Partnerships (CIPs) at Newham College was founded in 1997 to encourage enterprise and deliver skills for jobs. We have since helped thousands of people and businesses succeed by providing support, accredited training and career development activities.

You’ll play an important part in our ongoing work by supporting CIPs’ own marketing projects, as well as those of our customers. Reporting to our Marketing, Communications & Events Manager, you’ll help with planning and implementation and work closely alongside external partners, funding bodies and government departments when appropriate.

Whether you’re creating articles for our Innovation News publication, preparing press releases or developing contact databases, you’ll be able to work quickly and accurately under pressure. The role is varied and involves close liaison with designers, printers and other external suppliers, as well as responsibility for the admin associated with our internal and external events. You’ll also manage diaries, deal with mail and handle everyday correspondence.

We are looking for event management, copywriting and administrative skills, including the ability to keep accurate records on paper and computer. If you’re not already familiar with software packages such as Photoshop or InDesign, you should be willing to undertake training, as we’ll be asking you to create fliers and other publicity material. You’ll also need a good understanding of social media, as you’ll be responsible for maintaining blogs and our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
