Rife Editor (Written content)
Salary: £25,000 - £28,000, pro rata
Rife is an online platform co-created with young people – giving them a voice and covering the stories that matter to them. It develops young people’s digital skills, confidence, experience and networks so they can thrive. Rife believes 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 Rife’s online audience. The role will be responsible for managing all written output by the in-house team of content creators, in partnership projects and for commissions. The editor will also be responsible for reviewing, managing and implementing the social media strategy, to ensure 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 the 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, they will shift focus from being a council funded platform delivered through youth services to re-imagining the model with young people, embedded across the creative sector and building new relationships with funders.
