Mrs Amy King
Media and Communications Officer
Communication Services (External Relations)
I am a member of the Media and Communications team at the University of Plymouth, and am principal media liaison for Health, Medicine, Dentistry and Psychology.
I also co-write the weekly Staff and Student Bulletins, co-ordinate the University's annual National Student Survey (NSS) campaign, and provide communications support for a variety of other internal projects.
Within my role, I have helped secure national and international coverage for a huge range of subjects through outlets including the BBC, The Guardian, The Times, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, Daily Express, and other publications throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
Among my responsibilities, I:
- Develop communications plans to ensure stories and messages reach the desired audiences
- Create high-quality written content - often tackling complex subjects - to share throughout the University's channels and wider media
- Provide video interviews to accompany written articles
- Provide media training for academics and support staff to help them share their work more widely
