King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching Trusts with a turnover of c£1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,800 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London. The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) sites at Denmark Hill in Camberwell and at the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in the London Borough of Bromley.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Senior Content Editor to join the Trust’s Corporate Communications team on a fixed-term basis until January 2022.

The Senior Content Editor is an integral part of the Corporate Communications team, working across both Print and Digital content.

The Corporate Communications team oversees all internal and external communications for the Trust. Members of the team work collaboratively and flexibly to meet and respond to requests for communications support from across the Trust and its partners. This role provides a great opportunity to learn from the various disciplines within the team.

This role will report into the Digital Content Manager, who has overall responsibility for the Trust’s web presence, including the Trust website, sub sites and partner sites. The Publications Manager will supervise and oversee the print and publication elements of the role.

To be successful in this role, you will have experience of producing both print and digital communications. You should have the ability to turn complex information into plain English and make it easy to understand for patients and the public. Importantly, you will have knowledge of and be able to apply ‘writing for the web’ principles, ensuring that content meets the needs of our audiences.

You should have experience of proofreading and editing large amounts of text, and be able to confidently communicate edits or changes to stakeholders across the Trust. Experience of producing content related to health or the health service is advantageous but not essential.

For the digital element of the role, you should have experience of administering web content management systems and an understanding of W3C web accessibility guidelines. For the print aspect of the role you should be proficient in using InDesign and Photoshop, and able to liaise with print suppliers, briefing them on artwork, and the Trust brand and style where necessary.

As well as working closely with members of the Communications team, you will also work with staff from across the Trust, building effective relationships with key stakeholders. You should have good interpersonal skills and be able to offer advice to colleagues within the capacity of this role.

This is a busy and varied role, often working to tight deadlines, so you should be highly organised and able to prioritise requests effectively.
