Job Details

Your role

As part of a small communications team, this is your opportunity to be involved in all aspects of our communications work. This will include writing, editing and updating our website and email communications; the FDA’s engagement with the media; our growing social media output; working with our branches and sections to develop campaigns and communications strategies; and writing and sub-editing copy for our award-winning magazine. You will be given the opportunity to influence the union’s development of its communications approach.

What we are looking for
