This is an exciting opportunity to help create new communications to support the aims and objectives of the Yorkshire & Humber Policy Engagement & Research Network (Y-PERN ).

Building off a Memorandum of Understanding between Yorkshire Universities (the representative organisation of the 12 universities in the region) and the Yorkshire Leaders Board (the Chief Execs and Leaders of Yorkshire & Humber’s 15 local authorities and 2 combined authorities), Y-PERN aims to create a step change in how academia and policy makers work together across the region. This means, how local policy makers can make better use of evidence generated at universities to inform their local, placed-based policy.

The Y-PERN Communications Officer will be responsible for supporting the execution of Y-PERN’s communication strategy. They will work closely with the senior programme manager, chief policy fellow, Yorkshire Universities and partner organisations of Y-PERN to help develop key communication outputs on priority communication platforms.

Key priorities will be the organisation of Y-PERN’s newsletter, blog series, events and website management.
