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.

We also offer generous Maternity, Paternity and Adoption leave packages.

To join us you'll need to have a good foundation in communications and marketing, including experience of copy writing and managing social media accounts, in addition to the ability to plan and deliver projects.

Whatever your background, you'll have excellent attention to detail and be able to show a real customer focus in all that you do.

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.
