Are you seeking an opportunity to join a multi-skilled environment, working alongside Developers, UX Designers, and Content Designers ? Do you put the user at the heart of everything you do?

We're looking for a Content Designer with good UX and accessibility experience to join our Content team in creating high-quality, engaging content for online and print materials.

About you

Working on a day-to-day basis with the team's Content Designers, you will identify user needs, write and map user stories and translate these into content. You'll have:

  • excellent attention to detail and the ability to see beyond line editing to more significant issues with content
  • a proven ability to make complicated information easy to understand
  • a solid understanding of UX and digital content best practices and principles
  • knowledge and experience of creating content that meets accessibility legislation following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
  • With experience using data to inform strategies on existing digital experiences, you will create, iterate, monitor, and manage user-centred content using analytics, user feedback, user research, and other sources of information.

    Ideally, you will also have experience of writing different types of content for a range of audiences, including:

  • marketing copy
  • case studies
  • events
  • guides
  • information-led content
  • product UI copy
  • microcopy
  • We require good attention to detail, so your grammar and spelling must be faultless. You must also be comfortable with your work being edited and be open to suggestions and improvements.

    In this role you will be contributing to the content community, supporting other Content Designers through content crits, proofing content for the department, and sharing knowledge of best practices in content design. It's important that you understand stakeholder needs and make sure our teams develop solutions and content with accessibility in mind.

    About us

    As a Marketing department, we help deliver the University strategy by understanding the needs of the audiences we serve and demonstrating how the University's expertise and capabilities can meet those needs. By developing and delivering innovative initiatives and activities with which our audiences will engage, we can help to build an enduring connection with the University community in line with its mission to deliver research and teaching excellence.

    The Content team sits within the central Marketing Department at the University. We work in a busy environment as a multi-disciplinary Agile team and you will be working closely with other content professionals, developers, and UX designers to support us in continuously improving our in-house designed and built Content Management System and the design and content of the website.
