We’re recruiting! New Communications & Engagement Manager role

The CILIP Information Literacy Group currently has an exciting new vacancy for the role of Communications and Engagement Manager, and is recruiting now! We are looking for a dynamic and committed individual to join our team and help lead further exciting developments to our communications activity across a range of platforms, including this website, LinkedinYouTube, and a range of social media and comms channels.

This newly-designed role will replace our existing Website Manager and Marketing & Communications Officer positions; the current post-holders, Dan Pullinger and Kate Grigsby, will be stepping down at the end of May 2024 after many years of successful contribution to the ILG Committee.

The closing date for applications is Monday, April 22nd, 2024.

This is a great opportunity to lead the work of a busy sub-group of the CILIP IL Group committee; this will include a significant role in implementing the Information Literacy Group’s strategy, with a particular focus on ensuring successful delivery of our comms and engagement activity across a number of different online platforms and at in-person events.

Your application should include the following:

  • Curriculum vitae

Applicants are encouraged from all sectors, including new professionals and students who have a particular interest in promoting information literacy. Applicants should be based in the United Kingdom. CILIP is committed to championing diversity, inclusion and representation. We particularly welcome applications from BAME, disabled, LGBTQ+ and male candidates, who have historically been under-represented on our committees.
