The National Deaf Children’s Society is the leading charity dedicated to creating a world without barriers for deaf children and young people. We offer free information about all aspects of childhood deafness, both on our website and in our publications. We support deaf children and young people, and their families at every stage of their life, and we’re here for every deaf child who needs us – no matter what their level or type of deafness or how they communicate.
We’re looking for an enthusiastic editor with substantial experience of planning, project-managing, editing and evaluating digital content, printed information resources and videos.
You’ll have a natural ability to convey complex information in clear, concise and engaging ways with excellent copywriting and editing skills and an eye for detail. You’ll possess excellent planning, team working and organisational skills.
In this role, you’ll be developing content to help give parents the confidence to make informed choices about their child’s future. You’ll be making sure deaf young people know the support they’re entitled to and how they can access learning at college or on an apprenticeship. You’ll be sharing information with professionals, like school staff, so that they can make sure their teaching is deaf-friendly and inclusive.
You should enjoy working collaboratively with other teams and be committed to getting things done to a high standard while managing your own deadlines and projects.
You’ll need to be passionate about supporting more deaf children and young people, their families and the professionals who work with them by continuously improving our information. You will therefore have experience of involving service users in research and testing, be familiar with analysing data to monitor performance and identifying trends.
We’re looking for someone with a positive outlook and fresh ideas to be part of our friendly and motivated team, to help us achieve our vision to be the go-to organisation for information and support on childhood deafness.
To apply for this role, you will have to complete an online application and specify how you meet the person specification criteria, as outlined in the job description. To do this, we suggest that you download the job description from our website prior to starting your application.
