Content Designer vacancy – join our team!
We’re looking for a user-centred content designer to join our team. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 23 March.
Our team has been up and running for a few months now, and our priorities and working practices are now taking shape.
This is a great time to join our supportive expert team, and play your part in enhancing prospective student online experiences.
Why join us
- You’ll be joining a team of content professionals – 5 people already work in this role, being coordinated by a senior content designer.
- You’ll benefit from working collaboratively with a team that brings together expertise in related disciplines – user research, information architecture, experience design, marketing and software development.
- You’ll be working on big challenges that have a significant impact on the operation of the University, liaising and supporting a student recruitment, marketing and web management community that numbers in the thousands.
- The University is a varied and stimulating place to work, with 500 years of history behind us and world-leading thinkers, educators and researchers.
- We’re committed to your professional development, with training and networking opportunities within and beyond the organisation.
Plus, we’re a nice sociable group 🙂
What we’re looking for
You’ll be a great fit for our team if:
- You’re passionate about content, and sharing best editorial practice. You’ll have a few years under your belt and be able to tell us about a few of your achievements (and maybe some hard learned lessons too).
- You care about solving problems – really, demonstrably solving problems for staff and students. This isn’t about clever or attractive content. It’s about effective and influencing content.
- You’re interested in people; everything begins with understanding users and their needs. We practice human-centred design and you need to be committed to this.
Don’t worry if you’ve not had the opportunity to work in a role that enables you to practice human-centred design. We know that this is an emerging discipline in the field of content management. But we do expect you to be able to demonstrate:
- an awareness of and appetite for designing with users
- self development and ambition to become more user-centred
- how you know that content you’ve worked on had an impact (or indeed, didn’t)
- Salary range: £28331 to £32816
- 40 days paid annual leave per year
- Open-ended contract
- Excellent pension and benefits
- Closing date: Monday 23 March
