The role

Changes in technology are bringing about changes in how we consume content. That’s as true for news outlets as it is for think tanks and academic organisations. This is a crucial role within the Nuffield Trust, building on our strong reputation for clear and engaging online content.

You will be responsible for managing and developing content across the Nuffield Trust’s digital channels. A major focus of that would be on our blog posts, located in our news and comment section, which has become a vital outlet for our commentary and analysis. In addition we produce a wide range of briefings, infographics, videos and explainers that you would be involved in producing, as well as being the first point of contact for our website and digital presence.

We are looking for a communications all-rounder, who is as comfortable writing and editing punchy copy as they are working with content management systems to create web pages, embed charts, images and publish other content. You will have great people skills, which will allow you to work constructively with researchers to edit and shape their blogs and to help them think through appropriate digital outputs, as well as manage our relationships with key external suppliers, such as our web developers. You will also have a good eye for design, enabling you to create engaging and shareable graphics and curate our weekly newsletter. You will have some technical knowledge about digital communications and above all a flair and creativity for thinking about how digital tools can be used to promote academic research.

Having a good understanding of the UK’s health-policy environment would help you to hit the ground running, but there is room for picking up content expertise on the job.

We will provide you with the opportunities to develop your career in a high-profile policy environment, with a new website recently launched and a number of high profile projects underway.  We take training and support seriously, so we will work with you to develop a programme that fully challenges and fulfils you.

More generally, you will work as part of a team of communications professionals, operating in an integrated way to promote the work of the Nuffield Trust. You will be line managed by the Editorial and Content Manager.

To apply, please send your application form and CV to our HR department via email. Please remember to quote the correct reference.

Offers of employment will be conditional on candidates providing proof of their right to work in the United Kingdom and the receipt of two satisfactory references.

First round interviews will be held in London on Tuesday, 16 May 2017. 

Second round interviews will be held in London on Thursday, 18 May 2017.
