We’re looking for amazing people to help us drive a digital revolution for the benefit of society.


About you

We know that sometimes people can be put off applying for a job if they think they can’t tick every box. But we realise the ‘perfect candidate’ doesn’t exist. If you're excited about working for us and can do most of what we are looking for, go ahead and apply. You could be exactly what we need!

We’re ideally looking for someone with:

  • A good understanding of audience types and experience of matching content to expectations. 
  • The ability to clearly and effectively communicate with members and customers
  • A definitive knowledge of the education sector, especially the learning and teaching space and the library/research space.
  • Previous experience of a range of marketing / communications channels.


About the role     

We are looking for a talented event producer who loves working on large events.

You’ll be the key driver behind the programme for our flagship Digifest event. Digifest brings together over a thousand delegates to discuss, debate and be informed and inspired about how Jisc, ed-tech, and digital is transforming the learning and teaching environment. 

You will also have the opportunity to produce the programme for our biennial CNI leadership event which brings together experts from around the world to examine how digital technology is impacting research and library practices and enabling collaboration across borders.

These events are a huge part of Jisc and it’s a big responsibility to ensure their continued success. You will work closely with the event leads and our friendly team in Bristol to ensure this happens.

About us

We want a world where people learn, discover and thrive through access to technology. No matter who they are or where they live. We’re a social enterprise, so every penny we create is reinvested in our core purpose. 

We’re a place where people make a difference to our members, feel valued and have fun. Our values are our guiding principles. They define how we work and help us to do what we do so well. Our values are pride, passion, pace, trust, and teamwork.

Our benefits are great too:

  • We offer 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays and 3 days Christmas closure)

  • We provide discounts on IT equipment, a cycle to work scheme and season ticket loans
  • We also offer generous parental leave arrangements, career breaks and volunteer leave

Connecting with each other is a doddle, thanks to our technology, but getting face to face is something we value and find time for when we can, so you may need to travel on occasion. Our main offices are in Bristol, Harwell, London and Manchester.
