Content Designer

We’re looking for someone to join the team as a content designer on a permanent basis.

You’ll help dxw create content that meets the needs of a diverse range of users. You’ll work with multidisciplinary teams on projects for our dxw clients creating content for websites, products, and services. You’ll help simplify complex information and be an advocate for plain English and accessibility.

You’ll also work with our WordPress clients to improve the content on their websites. You’ll help them do content audits, improve their writing for the web, help write style guides, and show them how to manage their content better. We use WordPress for dxw content and many of our client projects, and you’ll work with teams building more bespoke software and writing user guides where needed.

You’ll provide editorial support to dxw for content on our channels such as the website, blog, and newsletter.

We’re looking for someone who can work with our senior content designer and editor, to help us improve how we do content design at dxw by regularly sharing your knowledge, experiences and ideas.

This is a new role for dxw which offers a lot of variety. We’re looking for someone with online content experience, who enjoys working individually and as part of a team, and can manage their time between different projects.

You’ll be able to develop your skills and be supported in the post, so we don’t expect you to have done everything that we’ve mentioned as part of the role but to be willing to learn.

About us

dxw works with the public and third sectors to create user-focussed services and products that improve lives.

We’ve been around since 2008 and worked on lots of projects that have made a real difference – things like helping to track aid spending and looking at how to improve digital collaboration between local authorities.

We’re looking for someone with content design and editing experience who shares our values to join us. We think it’s important to have diverse teams and aim to create an environment where everyone is supported to do their best and be themselves.

About you

We’re looking for someone who wants to help the public sector and charities build and maintain user-centred websites, products, and services.

You create and edit content with confidence, and use user research and/or evidence to create content that meets user needs.

You are able to help organisations prioritise, maintain, and improve their content. You have worked in a multidisciplinary team or a content/communications team, and are able to balance your workload across several projects.

You are confident creating and managing content in a content management system such as WordPress.

You care about accessibility and know how to create accessible content, and can create content for different purposes such as web content, blog posts, newsletters.

Salary and terms

£35,000 – £42,000 depending on experience.

You can be based anywhere in the UK. When current restrictions are lifted, some projects might involve weekly travel within the UK, often to London but sometimes elsewhere, for client work.

There is a high degree of flexibility for people looking for a part-time role or a role with flexible hours.

This role will close on Friday 9 April at 5pm.

Benefits include

  • Annual £750 personal learning and development allowance
  • Interest-free season ticket loans and cycle to work scheme
  • Up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave depending on your situation
  • 25 days holiday plus bank holidays
  • Pension with up to 5% matching employer contribution
