You will develop strong working relationships with the Principal Investigators of research projects and project researchers, to ensure the timely delivery of information for these communications outputs and to maximise communication coordination and opportunities. You will work creatively to ensure that communication policies, procedures and platforms of both the University of York and the Stockholm Environment Institute are maximised, as well as attend key institutional meetings and contribute to Centre level reporting mechanisms as required by the Communications Manager.
