An exciting opportunity to apply your media and communication skills and demonstrate your talent for developing engaging content across a variety of platforms.


We are a new world university. Like our namesake, Charles Darwin, we think differently. We innovate, embrace change, challenge conventions and look for better ways. We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. We care about people as individuals, and about our wider society. We’re about what we can give to the world, rather than what we take. We cannot build a new world without diversity of thought, so we bring together people with unique perspectives in an inclusive and supporting learning environment to help them connect, discover and grow. This is the CDU difference.


As Media and Communications Officer, you will assist in the preparation and implementation of effective media and communications activities to support the work of the University. This will include contributing to communications plans, facilitating links with media, supporting the Media and Communications Manager and ensuring that stories are disseminated through a wide range of channels, including social media.


Strong communication and professional writing skills will be critical to your success, as this position involves regularly attending meetings with clients, sourcing and writing news, feature stories, media releases and preparing public relations campaigns to improve awareness of the University and to raise its profile.


You will have tertiary qualifications in communications or media disciplines, or have equivalent relevant work experience, demonstrated ability to write in a variety of styles and evidence of a proven ability to liaise effectively across all levels of a large organisation. Essential to this role is your capacity to work under pressure with competing demands and deadlines, along with your demonstrable organisational and coordination skills.
