Based in brand new offices in Canary Wharf London, this role offers the opportunity to grow a career in digital communications within a world-leading government department.

The CMA works to make sure competition works in people's favour and businesses treat their customers fairly. In a world where markets are rapidly changing the need to communicate what we do has never been greater. As part of Strategy and Communications, the Web and Digital Team uses digital channels to deliver content that explains our work in clear and engaging ways. We focus on user needs and create and manage content across social media and GOV.UK, the internationally respected UK government website.

As an Assistant Web and Digital Officer, you will play an important role in delivering CMA's digital communications plans, managing content on GOV.UK and designing engaging, innovative content for social media.

In addition to excellent attention to detail, written and verbal communication skills, the successful candidate will offer experience in:

  • Creating and iterating web content, including editing and formatting documents.
  • Delivering engaging digital communications on social media to communicate key messages and announcements effectively.

And will have an understanding of:

  • Content design or drafting for the web, ensuring information online is clear, easy to read and find.
  • Accessibility, including its importance and how content can be made accessible for all.

In return the CMA is a hugely rewarding, diverse and stimulating place to work - an opportunity to work for the public good and to stretch and develop yourself in doing so.

We offer generous benefits, including an excellent pension scheme, at least 25 days leave (increasing to 30 over five years), and generous maternity/paternity leave provision.
