Information Resources Coordinator

RCN UK HQ Office, 35 hours, Fixed Term Contract or Secondment until 31st May 2019

As Information Resources Coordinator, you will be part of a team working with RCN colleagues and external partners to deliver a programme of online knowledge and learning resources.

It's a job full of possibilities, as the work of the team includes writing for the web and organising information on particular topics. The team produces a fortnightly newsletter on quality and safety issues, in addition to developing other forms of content such as webinars and podcasts. It's a great way to build your knowledge of our work and develop your potential.

We want the RCN to be the go to place for information on all aspects of nursing in the U.K. A key part of what you do will be to extend the RCN's digital professional offer to help us meet that goal.

What we offer you

We expect you to look after our members. And we expect you to be rewarded for it. As well as a whole range of learning and development opportunities we can also offer you an impressive range of benefits. We have a highly competitive pay structure, as well as flexible working, and annual leave of up to 32 days.

Balancing work and life commitments is important to us as an organisation. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs. All employees can ask for flexible working and when personal circumstances change we will work with you to find a smarter working solution that suits everyone. In fact, many of our employees enjoy home working, flexible working or compressed hours, enabling them to deliver results with minimum impact to their professional and personal commitments. We also offer generous Maternity, Paternity and Adoption leave packages.

To join us, you will need a library/knowledge management qualification or knowledge management experience of working in health related information or research, and ideally, have experience of web content management systems plus knowledge of digital and social media.

To succeed at the Royal College of Nursing all you need to do is think bigger, better and brighter. And with an attitude like that, anything's possible.
