Main responsibilities

Managing the ‘Wiki'
Using your content to its maximum benefit by managing a smart content library. We need someone organised, so that when we come to bid our next big contract, we can access the evidence to support what we say.

Owning our online presence

Must haves

First Class Copywriting Skills
We’ll need you to take technical engineer-y speak and translate it into plain English.

Multimedia Ability
We produce our content in-house, so photography and video skills are essential, along with a keen eye for detail.

Web experience
We use an open source CMS on our website and intranet that you’ll learn to use on the job. If you’re tech savvy, you’ll pick it up in no time.

Creative nous
Over the years we’ve nurtured a strong brand identity and a reputation for being different. It’ll be your job to uphold this, and to infuse the brand in every aspect of your work.

A polite note to recruitment agents...

We're flattered that you'd like to work with us, however we have a preferred suppliers list of several agencies we've built up long-standing relationships with. There are lots of you and only a small number of us, so with this in mind, we politely ask that you avoid making approaches to our HR team or managers across the business. Thank you
