What you’ll be doing

  • Your work could help design better experiences that are inclusive and accessible for millions of users.
  • You’ll be working closely with our user experience consultants, interaction designers and developers to plan and structure content in such a way that it is optimised for the web, is accessible for all and and written in plain English.
  • You will enable the information users are searching for to be found in a clear, concise manner that minimises unnecessary duplication or complication.
  • You’ll have solid research to inform the way you design content in response to identified needs.
  • You understand the value of this as well as the user analytics, and use this to plan and write digital content to suit the goals of the projects and clients’ guides.

What we’re looking for

  • You are an experienced content writer for the web and are someone who is able to plan and write content in a user-centred way for high profile projects.
  • You have experience of designing content that goes beyond core copywriting. This could have been gained working for a digital agency or as part of an in-house digital department, for example.
  • Experience of working with or within Government (ideally to GDS standards) would be particularly useful although projects will provide variety across a range of sectors.
  • There are opportunities for senior roles too, so if you also have experience of taking a lead practitioner role and/or driving the solutions and strategies deployed on a project all the better.
  • With a proactive, flexible attitude you’ll enjoy collaborating and working with others, from colleagues to clients.
  • You enjoy working independently and taking accountability for your work, as well as positively contributing to the teams you are part of.
