To create this resource we collected job descriptions from across the sector and tried to distil a number of commonalities for four key roles: Public Engagement Coordinator, Public Engagement Evaluation Officer, Academic Public Engagement Champion, and Head of Public Engagement, Roles vary widely in this sector, so the job descriptions here are by no means exhaustive. The examples here have a particular ‘central team flavour’ and concentrate on advising on public engagement rather than doing public engagement.
