Careers

Communications

Our expert communications staff are vital to the success of the RCN. They support our members and staff, inform the general public, influence decision makers and celebrate the wonderful work that nursing staff do every day throughout the UK.

Inspiring our audiences

As an RCN communicator, you’ll make a difference to so many of our stakeholders. You could be inspiring our staff in their diverse and challenging roles; or promoting our services to members, signposting them to RCNCommunications resources that support them in their time of need or enhance their development and clinical practice.

By seeking out and utilising the expertise of our members and staff, you’ll enable the RCN to influence the nursing world at the highest possible level, lobbying the UK’s governments to improve health policy and patient care.

You could get involved in the design and production of clinical best practice guidance; member magazines and newsletters; campaign communications; marketing materials; content for our internal and external websites; and contribute towards the RCN’s presence on social media.

Your new ideas will build on the success of our national campaigns: Frontline First and This is nursing, helping us to spread the word about the need to protect our members’ jobs and pay, and showcase our professional work to improve nursing practice.
