The Communications Team is responsible for both internal communications and external communications. This includes web or print copy, social media, events, and news and announcements.
The Communications Team, includes the Press Office which provides a central source for media enquiries, both proactively by contacting journalists about our latest news and research and also reactively by providing expert commentators on a daily basis.
We celebrate the University's global excellence, delivering and facilitating high quality and engaging events for broad audiences - promoting its work and achievements. We're responsible for leading and co-ordinating public events and campaigns such as the Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series and our Leicester Heroes Day with the Anthony Nolan trust, and celebration activities like Christmas on Campus and building openings - plus our two annual Graduation congregation.
We also advise staff on developing events that are being organised in their own departments or schools throughout the year.
