NHS BLOOD AND TRANSPLANT

Lead Content Designer

Band 7 - £31,696 to £41,787

Location: Watford

Ref: 918-CM2075

Team work is perhaps the most important thing about NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT). Each element of gathering, storing and supplying blood components, tissues and organs for use in transfusions and transplants is done to the highest standards, with every member of staff committed to making the most of these generous gifts. And as these donations continue to improve and save the lives of millions of people, it’s crucial that we further this incredible team-work ethic – recruiting people who are keen to work in a progressive and innovative environment in which every voice is heard, every action is supported and every colleague is welcoming. It’s a working atmosphere that we’re particularly proud of, and one that we’d like to invite you to join.

At the heart of the Customer Marketing team in Watford, you will devise an exciting content strategy for use across our digital channels. Specifically, you will work to improve donor experience, putting them at the heart of content design and change public behaviour towards organ donation – thereby making a direct impact on this vital work. Taking responsibility for a team of content designers and a videographer, you will come up with concepts, commission content and see your ideas through to fruition, monitoring their success across a number of channels such as microsites, all NHSBT websites and mobile-optimised experiences. Ensuring every element adopts the same tone of voice, you will also write and audit both new and existing content, and guide various stakeholders including those in NHSBT and beyond (including the Government) to agree messages and ensure we are consistently meeting user needs, resulting in raised awareness and audience engagement.

To thrive in this newly-created role, you will have a background in content, web or digital creation with solid knowledge of web authorising tools or CMS. Boasting excellent writing, editing and proofreading skills, you will have experience of agile working and you will also be able to interpret and develop sitemaps and user journeys. If you have a driving license that would be useful, as you will occasionally need to have overnight stays in geographically diverse locations. A natural leader with meticulous project management capabilities, your knowledge of current developments in the internet and how to best apply accessibility and usability to various projects will make you an invaluable asset to this fast-paced team.

We work hard to retain our staff and help them climb the ranks internally. We want you to succeed in your career – and we want you to stay with us as you do so – which is why we offer our people solid mentorship and guidance, with plenty of training and development opportunities. You will also benefit from 27 days of leave plus 8 bank holidays, and you will be able to apply for funding to pursue personal development activities – providing you with a fantastic work-life balance and the scope to actively pursue your career ambitions. If that’s an environment that you’d enjoy working in, then get in touch to discuss your next move.

Closing date: 25 October 2017.
