JOB OPPORTUNITY: Web Content Editor at Viva! | Viva!

Web Content Editor

We're hiring! Come and work for the charity you love as a Web Content Editor on our Web Team.

Viva! is an exciting charity – tenaciously working for a vegan world with dynamic campaigns, events, research and information on saving animals, caring for our planet and improving our health. We also encourage people move towards veganism with lots of lifestyle support such as our online (and apps) Vegan Recipe Club and 30 Day Vegan, as well as plenty of nutritional advice and upbeat events such as Viva! Vegan Festivals.

We have a portfolio of websites rich in informative, inspiring, and challenging content. 25 years old this year, Viva! is at a point where we need to consolidate that content into a structure better reflecting our current areas of activity: animals, health, environment and lifestyle.

The Viva! Web Team are looking to recruit a Web Content Editor. You must have an excellent facility with English, a good head for information architecture, and an eye for curating images. It's essential you have a practical understanding of SEO copywriting and Web usability. You’ll be responsible for monitoring site performance and implementing necessary SEO improvements, so a demonstrable capacity for turning metrics into actions is also necessary.

Ideally you will have experience of developing on the Drupal platform. Any front-end development skills (HTML, CSS, Javascript) would come in handy to help with prototyping, as would any training in graphic design. An understanding of topic areas like building user interfaces or improving user experience would be very useful. Bonus points for any experience of developing for multiple devices, and iOS apps specifically.

Viva! has a number of content creators, so you need to be able to listen to, understand, and transpose their needs into a development roadmap. That will include managing expectations, so clarity of communication is essential. Fundamentally, this is a collaborative role: you will be in the Web Team concentrating on our websites, but you'll be complementing the work of the PR & Marketing team generally.

Closing date: 23 April 2019

Salary scale: £19,000 to £23,000
