Job Introduction

We are looking for a talented Content Producer to play a vital role in our mission to support more people with and at risk of diabetes to live better and more confidently.

Your focus will be to produce audience-first content across multiple touchpoints to support people affected by diabetes to be physically active. As a key member of the Live Well, Move More cross-charity project group, you will use audience insights to plan, produce and evaluate high-quality content for our digital platforms, in print, and across our social media channels. You won’t just be writing excellent copy – you’ll be involved in video, photography, graphic and audio content too. This content will form the basis of social, email and paid ad content, signposting those audiences to more detailed website content and a print toolkit. An expert in content marketing, you’ll know how to increase the reach and engagement of your content, and how to build excellent customer journeys to drive conversions.

This role will harness the power of great storytelling with great content design, helping the user to understand the role physical activity plays in a healthy lifestyle. You will ensure that all content created is reflective of our brand essence, and always embodies our tone of voice characteristics: authentic, inspiring, frank, confident and human.

You will expertly leverage the use of Search Engine Optimisation, Google Analytics and other analytic tools to make informed and timely decisions. And you will have experience with content management systems and offer support on best practice to devolved web editors across the organisation.
