Website Redesign Manager

Contract: Fixed Term (18 months)

Location: 28 Bedford Square, London

Hours: 35 per week

Salary: circa £35-£38,000 per annum depending on experience

The Nuffield Foundation is looking for a digital communications specialist with strong project management skills to play a lead role in the redesign of our website, and the development of our digital platforms and content. This is a new role, and the successful candidate will work with an internal project team and a digital agency to deliver a new website that will underpin our digital communications.

The Nuffield Foundation is an independent charitable trust with a mission to advance social well-being. We fund research that informs social policy, primarily in Education, Welfare and Justice. We also fund student programmes for young people to develop their scientific and quantitative skills, and have recently established the Ada Lovelace Institute to ensure data and AI work for people and society. You will join the Foundation at an exciting time, as we expand our charitable activities to deliver our five-year strategy. A new communications strategy is a core component of this, and we are growing our communications team to engage with new audiences and raise the profile of the Foundation and the work that we fund.

You will have experience of working on a complex web redesign project and be skilled at producing content that drives engagement with a range of different audiences. You do not need to have technical website development skills, but you must demonstrate a good understanding of the web development process, including user-centred design, experience, and testing, as well as the principles of search engine optimisation (SEO) and Google Analytics. You will have strong project management skills and a track record of working with external agencies and building effective relationships with colleagues across an organisation.

We are looking for someone with excellent writing and editing skills, who can identify key messages from research and think creatively about the best way to identify and engage the relevant audiences through digital content. You should have an interest in social policy and a proactive, hands-on approach.

This role is for a fixed term of 18 months (although this may be extended) and will report to the Head of Communications. The Nuffield Foundation is based in Bedford Square, near Tottenham Court Road. Salary will be commensurate with experience but likely to be c£35-38K. 

To apply, please send us your CV and a covering letter explaining how you meet the criteria in the job description, to recruitment@nuffieldfoundation.org to reach us by midday Friday 1 March.  

Initial interviews are expected to take place on Thursday 7 March 2019.
