Job Description

About us

We are Britain’s national equality regulator and a United Nations accredited ‘A status’ national human rights institution.

We uphold people’s rights without fear or favour. We use the full force of our legal powers to defend people from unfair or unequal treatment and to challenge breaches of the law. We advise on developing laws and provide guidance, training and support to enable compliance.

We bring people together to create change. We work with employers, governments and a wide range of organisations, to promote understanding of equality and human rights and we support them to make improvements in practice.

Our new strategy for 2022-25 gives us a strong platform to show that we will use our powers to protect and promote equality and human rights, and that we have identified the main challenges in society where we can make a difference in our role as a regulator.

Overview of the role and responsibilities

Working as a content designer at the Equality and Human Rights Commission, you will write, develop and optimise content for a range of digital channels, ensuring it’s clear, engaging, creative and accessible.

You will need to be able to take complex language and content and make them simple to understand, make the case for user-focused design and be able to explain your decisions clearly. You will manage relationships with stakeholders and subject matter experts to produce content that is accurate, timely and high quality.

Working with the senior content designers, you will make sure user journeys are the best they can be and produce content based on insight and outputs of user testing.

Passionate about accessibility, you will apply accessibility best-practice and stand ready with neat solutions for accessible content, so we can always lead by example.

You will also be working with external suppliers and creative agencies.
