Posted date: 14/06/2010 Experienced editor, comfortable working within content management systems and ready for a new challenge? We???re introducing new ways of working to free up our content for delivery through a variety of media ??? print, online, mobile web and third party syndication. Raising some conceptual challenges, this innovative project will appeal if you have an interest, not only in how content appears, but how it can be made to work for different goals. And what – apart from the obvious editing, writing and proofreading skils – do we need you to bring to the role? Well, your duties range from supporting the development of ???generic??? content (on tests, treatments, symptoms and side effects) to working with our Information Development Nurses to ensure clinical accuracy, and with the Digital Media team to optimise content for online delivery. So, you need to be accomplished in dealing with content and layout issues as they relate to both print and web pages, the planning and organisational ability to manage multiple workstreams to deadline, and experience of developing health-related information products and of facilitating user involvement in information development. Intermediate skills in both InDesign and HTML/XML markup would be advantageous. And in return? We commit to actively developing you and our benefits include BUPA, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.
