The digital communications team at St Andrews is a varied band of digital experts. We’re passionate about improving the experience of our users, whether they’re prospective students, local community, academic researchers or visitors to the town.
We’re united in our commitment to design by data and rigorous and regular testing. We’re the ones that come up with new ideas, prototype them, test them, iterate upon them, code them, launch them and then make them better. We’re fast-moving and proactive in our approach.
Currently a team of eight, you’ll be sitting alongside a designer, web developers, and a team of content editors. You can find out more about the team on the about page of this blog.
Digital communications sits within the department of Corporate Communications, so we help with everything from breaking University news to communicating with colleagues across the institution.
This is an exciting time to be joining the digital communications team. Over the last three years, we’ve relaunched the University home page, built a whole new section about the University, created micro-sites for graduation, research, and orientation, created a whole set of policies and guidance in the digital service manual, refreshed the University news site, and launched a digital prospectus with a subject focus. In the coming months, we are creating new websites for the Academic Schools.
We’re excited to be bringing a new member of staff into the team and we look forward to working with our new colleague soon.
If you’ve got any questions about the role, feel free to drop any informal enquiries to Dr Stephen Evans ([email protected]). Otherwise, applications are open, and we’re looking forward to meeting some of you at the end of the month!
