Strategic Marketing and Digital Communications

We ensure our brand is defined and communicated to a wide range of stakeholders, so that everyone understands why York is one of the best universities in the country.

As well as working at a University level, we work with departments and services to advise and support them in their communications and marketing both in print and online. This includes the prospectus, the weekly staff digest, digital screens, social media, and the University's web site.
