  • Involved in co-producing and co-delivering some of the interventions.
  • Use your creative digital skills to produce marketing materials to successfully reach and increase engagement from the student population that we are targeting.
  • Contribute to Social Media content to raise awareness and increase engagement.
  • Ensuring we meet all of our deadlines and stay on track for the project.
  • Communicate with students and project partners/stakeholders.
  • Support with data collection and analysis of the project to evaluate impact of the project.
