St George’s is a modern, innovative academic and research organisation built upon a rich history stretching back 250 years. Alumni include John Hunter, known as the father of modern surgery, and Edward Jenner, creator of the first vaccine, used to eradicate smallpox.

We share a site with St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust, one of the UK's largest teaching hospitals. Our smaller size lends a genuine community feel – students and staff can walk the corridors of our facilities from clinical teaching room to laboratory to hospital ward or clinic. As testament to this we were voted London's best student experience for two years in a row in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey.

It is an exciting time for public engagement at St George’s, University of London. We would like to recruit a Public Engagement Co-ordinator who will be pivotal to our success, and support our public engagement both in terms of strategic and operational development and delivery. The role is central to developing and implementing our strategy, building capacity, developing partnerships and creating and organising innovative and engaging public events and activities. We want to develop a culture and practice of collaborative, inspiring, inclusive and open public engagement at the University – this is a chance to lead that work.

We are looking for a candidate with the following attributes:
• Successful track record in public engagement
• People-focused with outstanding communication, interpersonal and relationship-building skills
• Experience of supporting academics and researchers to engage with diverse communities
• A background in creating and organising events for a wide range of audiences
• Ability to develop strong working relationships with external partners, including community groups, funders and event attendees
