The purpose of the toolkit is to:
Raise awareness of how the Internal Communications team can support teams with promoting their projects, events, news and initiatives.
Give colleagues the confidence to create their own content with a suite of resources.
The Internal Communications team is responsible for writing news stories for internal and external audiences; sending mass emails, including the weekly staff and student e-newsletters; planning, coordinating and supporting University-wide campaigns; and producing relevant, timely and diverse communications for other teams.
The website is split into the following sections:
Our channels: Information about the different communication channels the Internal Communications team looks after.
Messaging and tone: Useful guidance for writing your own copy.
Timescales: How to produce quality content in advance through collaborative work with the Internal Communications team.
Templates and examples: A collection of resources to support teams with their own communications, including campaign planning templates and tips for writing a blog.
Teams we work closely with: An overview of how other teams in Marketing and Advancement can help get your message out.
