Job Advert

As Social Media and Editorial Officer, you will play a significant role in shaping and developing our social media strategy to maximise the influence and impact of our work, grow and develop our communities, and continue to build on our reputation.

This is an exciting and new role which has been purposely created to actively drive and influence fundamental change to the College’s social media and news output, for which you will be given both the autonomy and support to achieve this.

As part of the Media and Campaigns team, within the Policy and External Affairs Directorate, you will actively promote all news stories and campaigns, opinion and comment, and policy reports on behalf of the College, contributing to and developing engaging content on key social media platforms.

Working closely with the Head of Media and Campaigns, you will take the lead on the College’s social media strategy and manage, review and reform the various platforms the College uses. You will also take the lead on social media training for colleagues whilst being capable of assisting the media team with incoming media enquiries and the drafting of media materials such as press releases and briefings.

With experience of leading social media campaigns and producing compelling content, you should have demonstrable evidence of leveraging social media analytics to measure success, spot trends, improve performance and enhance impact, whilst keeping abreast of developments in social media and evaluating the College’s capabilities.

With a relevant degree or equivalent experience perhaps gained in a healthcare, NHS or membership body environment, you should also be able to use your strong communication and report writing abilities to present information in a fluent manner to a range of people at all levels. 

The Policy and External Affairs Division actively promotes the membership, stakeholders and the public awareness of the RCPCH and core child health priorities. 

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health sets and maintains standards for the education and training of all doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK. We advocate on child health issues at home and internationally. Additionally, through a variety of activities, the College influences the quality of medical practice for children in hospital and in the community.

The RCPCH has more than 19,000 members and fellows and employs around 160 staff, most of whom work in our London office in Holborn. We have smaller offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
