And you’ll demonstrate a good/strong working knowledge and experience of SEO and digital copywriting best practice.

As an active Christian (Permitted under Schedule 9, Part 1 of The Equality Act 2010), this role offers you the opportunity to integrate your Christian faith and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.

In addition to the salary indicated, we offer good benefits including pension, generous holiday entitlement and free parking (MK only).
