Content Designer

Bristol

Nomensa is a strategic experience design agency. Combining our experience in psychology, interaction design and technology, we transform digital experiences.

We work hard to understand people, their emotional reaction to design and create exciting digital interactions in response to this. We have one of the largest, most talented teams of specialists in Europe, who have designed award winning digital experiences that have reached millions of people.

We have ambitious growth plans, and with over 125 staff across Bristol, London, and Amsterdam, we now have an exciting opportunity for a Content Designer to join our Content Design team in Bristol.

Why choose Nomensa?

Our people love working here, it is a supportive working environment where you can expect to work with, and learn from, teams of highly collaborative practitioners. We are one of the few companies within the UK to achieve gold standard accreditation by Investors in People and are committed to giving our people a supportive platform for ongoing career development. Whatever your role, we work hard to understand career aspirations, formulate plans to support personal development and provide meaningful opportunities to develop experience and capabilities.

We support flexibility and are currently enabling hybrid working, so that teams can come together to collaborate and integrate, as well as maintaining the flexibility to work from home. We work hard at creating an exciting, collaborative environment where we have one focus: humanising technology. The people you will be working with are passionate, care deeply about quality and excellence and take great professional pride in their work. If this sounds like it would be a good fit with your own values and ethos, then we would love to hear from you.

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. Attention to detail is a given, less so is your ability to easily move from detail to wider thinking when needed to bring real value to your work.

Benefits

  • Hybrid working (2 days in the office per week, greater flexibility can be discussed)
  • 25 days holiday (rising to 30 days based on length of service)
  • Your birthday off
  • Option to buy and sell holiday
  • Summer Fridays
