Digital Team

The Digital Team are responsible for the University's external-facing web and digital presences and managing the University's visual identity online.

Leading on web and digital media development, we provide a professional service to the University, working in partnership with Colleges and Professional Services to support strategic aims and objectives.

Using a content-first strategy, we produce websites to meet user needs, ensuring users can easily find the information they are looking for. Through use of targeted copy, images, video and audio we develop clean and simple websites, accessible across all digital platforms and audiences.

The team is made up of highly experienced professionals in digital marketing, communication, web design and content production. Find out more about the digital team members.

What we do

At the earliest stage of your project or request for digital work, involve the Digital Team and we will help you work out who your key audiences are and plan the structure, content and visual design to meet those audiences’ needs. We will advise regarding governance and provide training on t4, our content management system, to empower you and your team to maintain and continue to improve your web presence.
