Corporate Communications and Stakeholder Relations

Director: Janet Martin

Janet Martin

We are a professional communications team responsible for developing and producing integrated corporate communications to convey the transformational experiences LJMU can provide for students, staff and our many stakeholders.

We seek to convey the essence of LJMU as the leading modern civic university in the UK on all public platforms and in all University literature; the team is responsible for corporate communications in its widest sense through press and media, public affairs, promotion, presence and profile.  We act as the gateway for philanthropic fundraising for interested individuals and organisations to support students and the work of the University.

We are responsible for the delivery of key University events to make sure that LJMU students experience the very best from beginning to end – we greet new students with an exciting and engaging formal welcome to the University and to the city – and then we ensure that we celebrate their achievements in style with a fantastic and stylish graduation. We organise and develop opportunities for all of our students to engage with our arts and cultural partners; we produce the University’s public lecture programme including the acclaimed Roscoe Lectures, the largest public lecture series outside London, and we work with our Honorary Fellows and alumni to ensure that they are connected to the University and they have the chance to meet students and staff at every opportunity.

And we report on our efforts through our press and social media presence. LJMU is a community of truly extraordinary staff and students and it is our job to tell their stories every day.
