About the Role
The Centenary Institute is one of Australia’s leading medical research institutes, closely affiliated to the University of Sydney and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. We have an outstanding track record in research breakthroughs, and are on the cusp of many more. But we want to get better at telling our story effectively, so that others can benefit from our work, and to help us secure new supporters and partnerships, to further grow our impact.
We are therefore inviting applications from motivated individuals to join our Fundraising and Marketing Team, as the Media and Communications Manager.
Your primary role will be to increase awareness of the Centenary Institute’s research strengths and achievements, its vision and its brand. This will be achieved through the production and distribution of compelling, consistent and effective communications.
Working closely with the Director of Development and Philanthropy, your first task is to develop and then implement a communications strategy. Key responsibilities will include:
- the identification and prioritization of target audiences
- development of key messages
- sourcing and interpretation of material from our researchers
- translating the science into formats and language appropriate to our audiences
- setting – and monitoring progress towards – ambitious goals and targets.
If you can demonstrate excellent communication skills, including a flare for translating complex science for a public audience, we would love to hear from you.
