Royal Academy of Arts, Digital Content Designer / Editor - 18 Months FTC
Are you a creative digital problem-solver, a champion of the online user and a top-notch editor? We’re looking for a talented and self-motivated digital editor and content designer to join one of the world’s most exciting arts institutions.
Founded in 1768 by a group of artists, the Royal Academy of Arts is an independent charity: we’re still led by great living artists and architects today. We’re celebrating our 250th anniversary year by creating London’s most exciting space for the visual arts.
Alongside our incredible new campus, we increasingly deliver our mission through our expanding network of digital channels, letting us share our work with audiences across the world.
We’re seeking an experienced, enthusiastic digital editor and user experience expert to oversee the pages of our award-winning website.
Passionate about understanding the needs of our users – whether a first-time exhibition visitor, a long-time member, or an interested tourist – you’ll ensure our digital content meets their needs and encourages them to take the next step with the RA.
You'll use your skills and judgment to create and optimise some of the most important pages on our website, used by millions of users each year. You’ll be given responsibility and freedom – alongside a supportive team and management structure – to “own” the content design for vital user journeys across the RA site.
You’ll also oversee the standards of copy on our website, ensuring that – wherever they’re found across our digital estate, whether they’re telling a story or explaining our opening hours – our words are clear, compelling and on-brand, and most importantly, meeting the needs of their target user.
You’ll have experience and demonstrable skills in devising and creating digital content, including writing and copy-editing. You’ll have a creative, can-do approach to problem solving, a flexible way of working, great attention to detail and great ideas.
Experience working with a complex, consumer-facing site that combines editorial content, practical information and e-commerce would be an advantage.
Contributing to our online editorial and social media content, the ideal candidate will also have a quick-witted flair for storytelling and a visual eye for layout and design. You’ll have experience working with content management systems, and ideally, of social media management.
We’ll offer challenging and varied projects, a supportive and cheerful atmosphere with a focus on personal development, one of the world’s most exciting content programmes and a commitment to excellence. If that sounds appealing, we’d love to hear from you.
