We are looking for two experienced content editors to join a project to improve the accessibility of University websites. You will join a project team which is updating a set of high priority websites to help the University meet new public sector website accessibility legislation and also migrate content into our core web content platform. Are you able to structure, write and edit clear, concise web content and be able to tailor it for differing audience needs?  Are you confident editing and selecting photography and other assets?

Experienced in using a content management system, you will also be familiar with web accessibility standards and ensure content is accessible. An understanding of web analytics and content design will help you have informed conversations with stakeholders about structuring their content.

Although you will be able to work independently, manage priorities and meet deadlines, you will also know the importance of engaging with colleagues to achieve the best possible results.

You will have strong proof reading skills and will be comfortable making editorial recommendations on content structure and priorities.
