Does working with an innovative, community-focused social enterprise to deliver a ground-breaking HLF-funded project sound like fun? If so, we’re looking for a Community Manager with the confidence to be the voice behind the ‘Digital Dig Team’ project across a variety of on and off-line platforms, including social media, web, archaeological sites and community events. Ideal candidates will have already managed online and/or offline communities for projects or brands, or developed a community of your own. Your proven ability to drive meaningful engagement through digital platforms and social media will set you apart from the field.

Speaking of fields, we will be working in the middle of one in July 2014 to deliver the Digital Dig Team and Cyber Dig projects, and we will be on site at Leiston periodically through April 2015. You’ll be with us every step of the way, acting as the point person for visitors, participants, VIPs and anyone lucky enough to stumble on us while we’re in action. We will have an active and diverse volunteer corps, and you’ll help us find them and deliver training for our online platform – reinforcing the many ways that volunteers can engage with the project even when they are not on site with us. You’ll assist us in planning, running and publicising events; follow up; and evaluation. Top-notch communication skills are a must.
