Sharing the work of the Prospective Student Web Content Team

Category: Team experiences

A place for team news, personal learning reflections, book reviews and conference reflections etc.

When we began a recent project with Finance, we didn’t anticipate just how many different teams would end up involved. In this post, I share the insights we gained into silo culture, and the resolutions we made for next time.

We’re currently recruiting for a senior content designer who will lead our content operations function and play a key role in shaping our future service as we build a new content management system.

During a recent project with the Student Immigration Service, we found that breaking down guidance into numbered steps helped us simplify complex information and improve user experience.

At a recent awayday, I had the opportunity to share some thoughts on services, what that means for how our team does its work and how it might have wider impact.

In November, our team is going to and presenting at the ContentEd conference hosted in Edinburgh. ContentEd is a 2-day conference designed for people working in content strategy, content design and content marketing in the higher education sector. 

We’re looking for two people with a passion for human-centred content design to join our team. If you’re up for solving big digital problems for prospective student, working in a multidisciplinary team this could be the opportunity for you.

We’re recruiting two positions to our team: a user experience specialist to lead our research and dissemination activities, and a performance analyst to transform our approach to quantitative insight.

We’re recruiting 3 content designers to join us in improving the prospective student experience at the University of Edinburgh. Applications close Tuesday 14 September 2021.

Lauren and I have had our session proposal accepted for this year’s ContentEd conference in November. We’re really looking forward to sharing our experiences at the international higher education conference for content professionals, and we’ve got a discount code to share with Edinburgh colleagues.

We have two entry-level opportunities to join our team and start a career in content design. These positions would suit graduates or people with a couple of years’ relevant experience. Applications deadline: 24 August 2021.
