Job Description

Are you an experienced writer with a good understanding of how to optimise web content to meet corporate and user needs?  Can you create clear, well-written and engaging content, working both independently and collaboratively with a range of colleagues? An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the team that’s transforming NIHR’s corporate website into an accessible, intuitive, engaging platform for NIHR’s diverse audiences.

You will be part of a central communications team that works closely with coordinating centre communications teams, achieving change through influencing skills rather than through a traditional hierarchical structure. This is a hands-on role requiring energy, tenacity and emotional intelligence.

Your organisational base will be the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) Coordinating Centre (which is provided jointly by the University of Leeds and Guy’s and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation Trust) and your direct report will be to the NIHR Director of Communications. Your employer will be the University of Leeds and you will be based in London. In the first instance, this post is offered on a 12-month fixed-term basis.
