Students – we need your help!

The TELStA team is seeking an intern to help them with information overload. Our field is very fast-moving, and we have a wide range of information from various sources  which we need to share with those who use our services. The intern would be required to audit and analyse both the information sources, and the current channels used to share (including social media, blog and email) and formulate a communication plan for the team. The plan should be based around strategies for members of the team to embed information sharing into their current workload. Other duties of the post include helping the team to set up their Instagram account; live-tweeting from TELStA events; and helping to launch “The Hive” – a TELStA facility for staff in the Gateway Building.

Please apply by email to mhma@st-andrews.ac.uk with a covering letter and CV. Applications close on 14th October 2019. This vacancy is also listed on CareersConnect under the reference 227BY. It’s a paid position.
