Project work

The digital communications team has completed a strategic programme to improve the core external-facing website. This programme was a high priority within the business transformation portfolio (BTP). The aim of the external website programme was to standardise, simplify and consolidate the design and content of the University’s core external-facing website.

The team has now started work on the Academic Schools websites project and will provide resource to other change initiatives with first priority given to other BTP activities requiring expertise from digital communications.
