Want to help us tell the UK about how we help people with IBD ?

We are looking for a Digital Communications Officer – join us

About the role

Our Digital Communications Officer role is a new position in the IBD Registry that reflects both our fast growth and increasing maturity. This is a new role to support our communications activities by building and delivering through our many digital channels the compelling content that will engage our key stakeholders

You will be part of a small and growing and highly collaborative team, reporting to and working closely with the Communications & Engagement Manager, as well as with clinical and academic data specialists and our partner organisations, including Crohn’s & Colitis UK, the BSG and RCP and our current partnership with University Hospitals Cambridge for the £5M IBD Hub project for HDR UK.



About you

We are looking for a data-minded digital communications all-rounder, who is as comfortable writing and editing punchy copy as they are working with tools and social media platforms such as WordPress, Mailchimp, Twitter and LinkedIn to create web pages, design infographics, craft newsletters, blogs and postings and publish content.

Your most important attributes will be your readiness and ability to learn, your ‘can do’ mindset coupled with a rigour of thinking and attention to details. Above all, you need to believe in our mission and want to join us to make a difference: our small team makes a big difference in IBD across the UK and this needs to be more than ‘just a job’ for you.

Salary and other details

This is a permanent part-time (flexible hours) role for 12-16 hours/week (to be worked flexibly over the week) and offering a salary between £22,000 – £24,000 FTE (40 hours) depending on relevant skills and experience.

The role will be fully remote (home-based) working to support the varied hours that the role would require each week.  However, you must live and work in the UK.

We offer 25 days holiday each year plus 8 Bank Holidays (all FTE, pro-rata for part time); plus a 5% employer’s contribution to your pension.

Our office is in Epsom, only minutes from the station in brand new offices in a bright modern complex including library, cafes and restaurants.  Epsom itself is only 30 minutes train journey from Waterloo, Victoria and Blackfriars, 15 minutes from Wimbledon.
