12 months Fixed Term
As the independent regulator for higher education, it`s our job to ensure that students from all backgrounds have a fulfilling experience of higher education that enriches their lives and careers. We`re looking for a Digital Content Editor to make sure our website and other digital content is well-planned, engaging and - crucially - useful and easily understandable to our key audiences.
We are looking for someone to help develop, implement and manage the Office for Students` (OfS`s) approach to digital. The successful candidate will help to embed content design as a way of sourcing and creating content across the organisation. No day will be the same, but you can expect to be involved in planning, drafting, editing and publishing digital content to a high standard for a mixture of audiences, universities, students, parents, government and more. You`ll need to be adept at building relationships with colleagues across the organisation, working as part of the Digital Publishing Team to support a culture of `digital first`.
The successful candidate will have a strong understanding of digital technologies and how they can be used to communicate effectively with different audiences. You will need excellent written and verbal communication skills, as well as being an organised and flexible project manager.
This is an exciting, varied and challenging role in a supportive team, and a great opportunity for someone looking to move to a new, high-profile and important organisation. We offer a flexible working environment, access to the civil service pension scheme and a host of other benefits.
We welcome flexible working, and as an organisation which exists to support education and lifelong learning, we are firmly committed to providing learning and development opportunities for all employees. The role is a full time, fixed term to cover maternity; however, we will consider job share and part-time applicants (minimum 0.6 FTE).
The Office for Students is largely working remotely during the coronavirus pandemic, but we expect to make a phased return to our Bristol-based office. When we return to the office, the role will be based in Bristol, however some travel may be required.
Note that shortlisting will take place on 19th October and interviews will be in the same week, 23rd October.
All applicants must be based in the UK and confirm that they are able to prove their eligibility to work in the UK.
