The RNLI could not operate without its people; staff members and volunteers.

Both are critical to the ongoing success of the organisation. As part of the Internal Communications Team, you will be supporting the organisation by delivering effective and engaging communications that build pride and equip staff and volunteers, so they can act as effective advocates for our charity.

Your role is to support the Internal Communications Team with the delivery of internal communications across the RNLI. You’ll need to be ready to hit the ground running in this fast-paced team and have a real passion for the RNLI and its lifesaving work.

As a creative writer with excellent written English and an eye for detail, you will be copywriting, creating, editing and repurposing content so it is simple and effective but powerful for our diverse staff and volunteer audiences. You’ll also be working with staff and volunteers across the RNLI to help them communicate their news effectively too.

Understanding the importance of tailoring messages and packaging up content in a way that informs and engages people in a big organisation is vital. You will be a key player within the team, writing and publishing news and resources on our internal channels.

We are looking for a self-starter who is hard working with an agile and accommodating approach to their work, as well as being someone who works well as part of a team. You will need to be flexible, adaptable and prepared to listen to and act on feedback and measurements.

If you have excellent writing skills, like thinking creatively, working on a diverse range of projects and know your way around software programmes, then you would enjoy this role.

Join the RNLI’s Internal Communications Team and help keep our people informed while developing a sense of value among those people who give so much of their time and energy to our lifesaving charity.

The RNLI is committed to safeguarding; ensuring the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk. We expect all employees and volunteers to share this commitment. The suitability of all prospective employees and volunteers will be assessed during the recruitment process in line with this commitment. This will include relevant criminal record checks being carried out dependent on the eligibility of the role.

We are an equal opportunities employer.
