We’re hiring a Copywriter!
Job Title: Peer Copywriter
Full-time: 17.5hrs per week
Salary: £25,000 pro rata (Actual salary £12,500)
Closing date: 6 February 2023
We are looking for an outstanding writer who is confident with social media, and able to tell a compelling story. As a key voice for our organisation, you will ensure that our communications are engaging and on message, promoting the values of Inclusion Barnet as a Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisation.
As well as an engaging communication style that you can adapt to suit different audiences, you will need an ability to write accessibly. You will have a clear understanding of the social model of disability and the disabled people’s movement, which will be demonstrated in the way you talk about key issues. We use Canva, Hoot-Suite and Campaign Monitor so experience of these would be highly desirable.
With a good instinct for what’s on message for the organisation, you’ll be able to capture the attention of our key audiences. At the same time, you’ll be confident using a range of social media, creating engaging content, using ICT and comfortable with updating our website content. Most of all, you’ll share our beliefs in the power of lived experience and the need for society to remove barriers for disabled people.
In return, the successful candidate will become part of a friendly and supportive team, working within a focused but flexible culture, where diversity is valued, and you can bring your whole self to work.
This is a remote role, and there is some flexibility on working patterns which will be by mutual agreement. Occasional evening and weekend work may be necessary, for which Time Off in Lieu will be given.
Lived experience of disability, which could include a long-term health or mental health condition, will be needed to successfully deliver the role. We also welcome applications from Black, Asian and other minoritised candidates, who are currently underrepresented in our organisation.
To apply, please submit your CV with a brief covering letter clearly stating how you meet the person specification and how you would use your lived experience of disablity to successfully deliver the role. Your cover letter will also need to demonstrate your writing ability. We expect a lot of interest in this opportunity, so please apply straight away if you are interested as it is likely to close early.
Please note: Applications are anonymised, and interviews will be held on a rolling basis, so the position will close early if the right candidate is found sooner than the application deadline.
