At the Royal College of Nursing, we’re an optimistic organisation. And we’ve got good reason to be. We all share the same voice when it comes to changing the shape of the health policies of the future. And as the largest trade union of nursing staff and students in the UK – with over half a million members – all we can see are the infinite possibilities for a brighter future. Join us and you will too.
We're accredited with Investors in People Silver Standard. Our people are our greatest asset, and we want people who can contribute to our purpose in line with our values.
If you’re looking to find a workplace with strong values of fairness, social justice and the opportunity to make a real difference to thousands of nursing professionals, then the Digital Organising Coordinator role may be a good fit for you.
As a Digital Organising Coordinator, you will work across the UK assisting the Organising Team with digital support for development and delivery of organising drives and activity throughout the four countries. You’ll be working closely with members and RCN staff coordinating the organising digital tools and platforms and supporting members to win on the issues that matter to them and the nursing profession.
It's a job full of possibilities as you could get involved in anything from member participation using digital technology; data management; to scoping the market for new and innovative technology to support member participation.
In this role you will be working to across two main areas of priority: digital tools and data management. Your day-to-day will be coordinating all the digital organising tools and platforms. This may include supporting member to member participation through Thrutext campaigns to scoping the technology market for new innovative ways to increase member engagement. With support from the Senior Organiser, you’ll also manage all aspects of digital organising data and work closely with the Data and IT teams to ensure security.
We’re looking for someone who is technology savvy and is comfortable working with numbers. Someone who pays attention to detail and who can work as part of a team while hitting individual targets, who is a go-getter and can follow the direction set by their direct line manager, the Head of Organising and the over-all strategic direction of the Organising Programme. It is important you can build professional relationships with members and staff by promoting a working atmosphere where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. Most importantly you will have a commitment to grow a deeper understanding of the practice of Organising which will help to shape the RCN’s Organising Programme.
What we offer you
We expect you to work hard as a professional and alongside members on organising drives under the direction of the Organising Programme strategy. And we expect you to be rewarded for it. We offer an impressive range of benefits, a broad range of learning development opportunities and an award-winning health and wellbeing programme. We offer annual leave up to 32 days plus bank holidays and three additional days for the Christmas break plus generous maternity, adoption, paternity, and shared parental leave packages.
*We offer a competitive pay structure with annual pay progression until you reach the top of the salary scale. We normally offer new employees the first point of the salary range, although you may be able to negotiate a higher starting salary depending on your skills, experience and current salary.
What we deliver for our members is wide and varied so when it comes to how we work one size doesn’t fit all. We also know that to empower our people to do their best work, they must be able to balance the demands of work and home. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs and many of our employees enjoy flexible working enabling them to deliver results whilst having a good work life balance. Departments and directorates have their own hybrid ways of working which put the needs of the service they deliver – whether that’s to members or to colleagues - at their heart, in alignment with our hybrid working core principles. At the RCN it’s unlikely you will work from home for all of your working time. Equally no one is excepted to work solely in the office unless your role requires it. You can find out more by having a discussion with the recruiting manager.
