  • Provide writing, editing and communications support
  • 9 months fixed-term role – VPS Grade 3

Do you know the difference between a colon and semicolon? En dash and em dash? Great, but can you write? We are looking for someone who can turn loose bullet-point briefs into powerful prose. Ideally you will be familiar with writing for government, however this is not essential.

As the County Court's Communications team, we provide key communications support to all areas of the Court. We assist with all kinds of publications, we publish website and intranet content, provide in-house design, advise on communication strategies and event planning, and much more.

In this role, you will be an all-rounder, doing everything from writing news stories, social media posts, briefs and memos, to editing reports, powering through administrative communications tasks, updating the website and generally helping where needed to ensure the team continues to deliver a high quality of work in a timely manner.

Because no two days are ever the same in our area of work, the ideal candidate for this role will be adaptable, easily switching from one task to the next, have excellent time management and prioritisation skills, have a strong grasp of grammar and the ability to adhere to a style guide, be a seasoned writer across all formats and mediums as well as an eagle-eyed editor with a great attention to detail. You will have had experience working in a journalism, editorial or communications environment – in government is a bonus.
