Online Editorial Assistant – Corporate Communications
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has achieved a vast amount in our 20-year history. Supporting the growth of open, democratic markets, we’re the largest financial investor in our regions of operations. Ultimately, our work makes people’s lives better. Be part of it.
About the role
Taking responsibility for the Bank’s online channel content, you’ll have the potential to make a real impact on our visibility, image and reputation. Combining the use of various management systems with your own editorial skills, you’ll publish, edit and manage the content on our main website, our microsite and our social media pages. You’ll write, edit and proof read headlines and text, you’ll add metadata to content and you’ll implement basic SEO – making sure every area of every channel is optimised for the web. You can expect to work with stakeholders at all levels of the organisation as well as the rest of the Communications Department as you gather information for diverse and interesting online projects; developing your skills and learning a great deal in the process.
To rise to this challenge, you’ll need a degree in English, Communications or similar, coupled with experience of producing editorial content in a digital background. You’ll show real passion for all things online, and you’ll certainly have used web content management systems before. First-rate spelling, grammar, and IT skills are essential. And as well as the communication skills necessary to work closely with senior stakeholders, you’ll also have the confidence to handle multiple projects all while working collaboratively as part of the team.
Owned by 61 countries, the EU and the European Investment Bank, the EBRD supports projects whose funding needs cannot be fully met by the market. We have operations in 29 countries from Central Europe to Central Asia, and we’re currently working on projects with a combined value of almost €180bn. Each project is unique, but they all share common goals of encouraging private investment and promoting secure and stable market economies.
