You will be a fast learner with good grammar and proof-reading skills, who can quickly write succinct, engaging and accurate copy relevant to its audience.

You will need to be adaptable and able to work to tight deadlines, with some occasional out of hours work.

You will report to the Communications Manager, but you will be expected to use initiative and creativity within your own appointed projects.

You will help to develop and update the FDA’s communications across various platforms.

You will assist in promoting awareness of the FDA and its public profile, helping to publicise the union’s policies and achievements amongst members, potential members and the media.
