The Humanities and Research Center in the College of Humanities and Sciences is seeking a part time Communications and Administrative Assistant. This position will take an active role in developing and implementing communications strategies for the Humanities Research Center, as well as helping with day-to-day administrative needs. For the latter, this will entail working closely with the Director and Associate Director on administrative tasks such as coordinating travel and helping with event and meeting logistics. In terms of communications-related responsibilities, successful candidates will be responsible for promoting the Center’s work on VCU’s campus and in the broader community. We are particularly interested in candidates with the ability to lead the Center’s efforts in social media design, development, and maintenance. Preferred skills include: project management; audio and/or multi-media production; graphic design; original writing. The Humanities Research Center provides a forum for intellectual exchange across and beyond the humanities at VCU. Demonstrated commitment to working in and fostering a diverse faculty, staff, and student environment is required.

Communications Coordinators perform a wide variety of administrative, logistical, operational, and technical tasks related to a specific communications function or project team, either within University Relations or in an academic school, department, auxiliary program, or business unit. They are responsible for coordinating and assisting with multiple aspects of a comprehensive communications and/or marketing program or project. Their typical responsibilities include supporting activities such as account management, fiscal operations, purchasing and billing; providing administrative and scheduling support; contacting clients and providing customer service; performing data analysis, research, and reporting; supporting events and programs; managing vendor bidding processes; and monitoring work flow. They may work independently or as a member of a team. They work under general supervision, resolving most standard issues independently and referring complex issues to an upper-level manager. Communications Coordinators typically report to a manager or director or in some areas may report to an administrator.
