Jo Robotham

Head of public affairs and media


I help people understand how Jisc helps educators through technology, focusing on communicating with external stakeholders - media, politicians and stakeholders. I oversee public affairs and media within Jisc's communications directorate.


I have worked in strategic, media and stakeholder communications for almost 15 years in organisations including the BBC, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and Creative Skillset. I've advised government ministers on communications including Sir Vince Cable and Jo Johnson, and in my most recent position was head of communications at Liverpool John Moores University.
