Rife Editor (written content)

Position: Rife Editor (Written content) (Part time, fixed term for one year)

Rate: £25,000 - £28,000, Pro rata (24 hours a week, 3 days)

Responsible to: Engagement Producer

Responsible for: Online Content Creators

Purpose of Job

Rife is an online platform co-created with young people - giving them a voice and covering the stories that matter to them. We develop young people’s digital skills, confidence, experience and networks so they can thrive. We believe young people’s voices should be part of the media landscape, so it is relevant and representative.

The Rife Editor (Written content) will work alongside the Rife Editor (Video content) to co-create content with young people in order to build our online audience. The role will be responsible for managing all written output by our in-house team of content creators, in partnership projects and for commissions. The editor will also be responsible for reviewing, managing and implementing our social media strategy, to ensure we are getting traffic through to the website, as well as participating in online conversations around relevant issues. The editor will be responsible for using Google Analytics to measure the success of our content, providing written reports to the editorial team, steering group and Engagement Producer.

The Rife editor will join the team during an exciting moment of change – in April 2018, we will shift our focus from being a council funded platform delivered through youth services to reimagining our model with young people, embedded across the creative sector and building new relationships with funders.
