Writer and Content Editor, part time - 14 hours per week
At the Royal College of Nursing we’re an optimistic organisation. And we’ve got good reason to be. We all share the same voice when it comes to changing the shape of the health policies of the future. And as the largest trade union of nursing staff and students in the UK – with around 435,000 members – all we can see are the infinite possibilities for a brighter future. Join us and you will too.
We're number 14 in The Sunday Times 100 Best Not for Profit Organisations to work for, with Two Star Best Companies Accreditation for 2018 and are accredited with Investors in People Gold Standard.
We’re looking for a writer and content editor with an interest in nursing and health care who can produce lively, engaging copy that will appeal to our different membership groups. You will join a small team that produces a range of printed and online magazines and newsletters, including our flagship title RCN Bulletin.
You will be a proactive, motivated and creative individual keen to generate new ideas and will have strong interviewing and writing skills. You will be a good team player who can work flexibly to respond to changing demands and will be skilled at building and maintaining relationships.
You will have experience of writing and editing copy for websites and using content management systems to upload content. You will have excellent planning and organisational skills.
Your energy and ideas will be crucial to the RCN Magazines team’s continued success, and you will be a supportive colleague, sensitive to the demands on others.
In return, we can offer an array of learning and development opportunities, and an impressive range of benefits. We expect you to look after your customers. And we expect you to be rewarded for it. As well as a whole range of learning and development opportunities we can also offer you an impressive range of benefits. We have a highly competitive pay structure, as well as flexible working, and annual leave of up to 32 days.
Balancing work and life commitments is important to us as an organisation. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs. All employees can ask for flexible working and when personal circumstances change we will work with you to find a smarter working solution that suits everyone. In fact, many of our employees enjoy home working, flexible working or compressed hours, enabling them to deliver results with minimum impact to their professional and personal commitments. We also offer generous Maternity, Paternity and Adoption leave packages.
