Would you like to use your outstanding editorial and communication skills to help millions of people living with diabetes? A key driver within our charity’s strategy is to achieve better care for people with diabetes as we strive to create a world where diabetes can do no harm. As a Content Producer in the Content and News team, you’ll play a vital role in delivering high quality editorial content to a healthcare professional audience.

Your focus will be to produce audience-first content across multiple touch points to support healthcare professionals, as well as adapting the content for people affected by diabetes. The format of the content you produce will be driven by audience needs, which could include writing and reviewing copy, commissioning photography, animations, videos and more.
You’ll be responsible for the day-to-day delivery of our healthcare professional subscription magazine. This would involve project managing the publication from initial concept to final publication. The magazine is produced quarterly and read by Diabetes UK professional members which includes diabetes specialist nurses, podiatrists, pharmacists, dietitians and diabetes researchers.
