If you’re interested in working in a dynamic, sometimes stressful, often fun, communications department of a technological research university, then have I got a deal for you.
I’m currently searching for an assistant director of communications to help us move forward as we make the transition from the University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR) to Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T). The communications department coordinates all PR, marketing and branding for the campus, in consultation with several other internal groups.
From my perspective, the ideal candidate will be someone who can manage the processes, work flow and staffing allocation for projects that involve small teams of staff across disciplines (i.e., graphic designers, writers and editors, and web designers/coders together). We need someone who can invigorate and inspire as well as “manage” people and processes. Although we’re a small enough team, with enough collaboration, that we don’t require a lot of managing.
The person doesn’t necessarily have to have a higher ed background. At this point, I’m leaving options open so we can get as large a pool as possible.
Interested? Drop me a line (andrew DOT careaga AT gmail DOT com) or log on to UMR’s Employment Opportunities site to register and search for the job.
