We have an exciting opportunity to join to our Digital team. As the Editor, your primary focus will be on customer engagement and you will take charge of our flagship communications with our customers. This includes our biannual print magazine, news content for our website, and regular email communications that go to hundreds of thousands of supporters, volunteers and other stakeholders. Aiming to inspire action and reinforce a deeper relationship and using audience insight and email metrics as your guide, you’ll generate and write original content, curate and edit content from across the organisation, and provide regular editorial guidance and support to our communications team and other staff.
Your knowledge of engaging content, storytelling, and email marketing will help us shape our messages and reach the right audiences with our life-saving information, real-life stories, research and campaigning news, and opportunities to get involved.
You’ll be working closely and collaboratively with a broad range of colleagues across the organisation. From raising awareness of the increased risk of prostate cancer in black men, to improving healthcare for men with the disease, as well as national fundraising events such as March for Men, you’ll craft and edit content for a range of exciting projects. You’ll also be expected to interview and guide case studies in telling their stories in sometimes very emotional and delicate situations.
You’ll be a confident, adaptive and a persuasive communicator who can build rapport with colleagues and supporters, coupled with the ability to turn complex or dry material into easy-to-understand and compelling content. You’ll have both email marketing experience and experience producing print publications and liaising with designers, fulfilment houses and print agencies.
You will also have experience of customer journey mapping and long term communication planning, along with a degree-level education or relevant professional qualifications.
We have a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer. Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support, we can make prostate cancer a disease the next generation of men need not fear. Be part of a team that will put an end to prostate cancer being a killer.
The support we’ll provide
Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will help you learn, develop your skills and expertise, and achieve your highest aspirations. We provide everything you’d expect from a professional organisation – competitive benefits package, contributory pension scheme, life insurance and a season ticket loan, – but much more besides. Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.
Closing date: Midnight, 16th June 2019
