Details

We’re looking for an enthusiastic Content Designer to join our experienced and creative digital team. You’ll be working to communicate the work of The Mayor of London and the London Assembly, writing and editing content on our website - London.gov.uk – and ensuring other digital products are engaging, concise and user-centric.

 

We use data and research to understand the problems Londoners face, inform the way we develop content and validate usability. We’re also creative - thinking about how different formats and useful online tools can best meet user needs and help communicate our messages. 

As a Content Designer you will guide and advise policy teams in how best to present their information online, be it through well written and web-friendly text, visuals or videos. You’ll also work closely with Business Analysts, Product Owners and Developers to ensure new functionality comes with clear wording and a simple journey.

Importantly, you’ll be a team player – working with our multidisciplinary and agile team who are committed to making sure that content is the best it can be and that staff across the organisation are upskilled and empowered.

You’ll work with various policy areas – helping them write and create great content for their programmes, strategies and updates. And you’ll of course work closely with other teams such as Marketing, Social, Press and Creative in producing high-quality communications.

 

You’ll also have opportunities to develop your knowledge and skills with access to lots of in-house training and will be encouraged to get involved in external training, conferences and workshops.

In fact, we’re always building on our expertise and our networks – learning from and collaborating with the Government Digital Service, Transport for London (TfL) and other London councils.
