Job description

Unifrog’s mission

We’re on a mission to level the playing field when it comes to young people finding and applying for their next step after school. We're achieving this by bringing all the available information into one single, impartial, user-friendly platform that helps students to make the best choices, and submit the strongest applications. We also empower teachers and counselors to manage the progression process effectively.

Our outlook is global - we work with schools and universities all over the world, from the US to New Zealand, and from Italy to Hong Kong. We want to make it so that young people can compare every opportunity taught in English, wherever it is in the world, and have all the support they need to make successful applications.

We have a clear social purpose, and we’re hugely ambitious. We already work with more than a third of UK secondary schools and hundreds of international schools. We are growing rapidly in terms of the number of our customers, in terms of how much they use our platform, and in terms of the breadth of products we offer.

Our team is at the heart of our business and is integral to our success. We work hard to foster a culture of openness, happiness and innovation, and we commit to helping every individual learn and grow so that they can reach their full potential. We want to hire talented people, whatever their background. If you are excited by our mission and are ready to work hard, please don’t hesitate to apply. We look forward to hearing from you!

We believe in the power of diversity. If you are from an ethnic minority background, we would like to strongly encourage you to apply. In advance of applying if you have any questions about working at Unifrog, please contact our UK Diversity Champion, Samar (visit our website for details).

Content and writing at Unifrog

We try to always communicate in the most straightforward manner possible, honestly, and with respect for the other person. We do this with each other and with people outside Unifrog.

We’ve made our House Style downloadable by anyone on our website because we want to share with the world our company view on what constitutes good writing.

Clear communication is particularly important for us because our mission is to level the playing field when it comes to access to opportunities, and a big part of this effort is fair and straightforward access to information.

Our platform includes several tools for students and teachers that feature our own content, such as:

  • The Know-how library (hundreds of practical guides for students covering Careers Guidance, Wellbeing and PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economics) topics).
  • Subjects library (profiles of different subjects you can study at university)
  • Careers library (profiles of different jobs you can do)
  • Newsletters (for both students and teachers)

The content is both text and video.
 

The role

  1. Project managing content creation (~ 4 days / week)

    You’ll be managing particular projects. Here are examples of some we’ve done in the past:
    • A themed series of guides in the Know-how library, each of which featured a different university. Managing this project involved coming up with the topics of the guides, liaising with the university representatives, drafting scripts, videoing and editing zoom conversations, all to a deadline.
       
    • A themed series of profiles in the Careers library, each of which featured a recent graduate talking about how they progressed into their current job. Managing this project involved finding and liaising with people to feature in the videos, drafting scripts, working with a filmmaker to do the shoot, liaising with an editor, getting the finished content signed off with the relevant company.
       
    • Writing a student newsletter. This involves planning the content a year ahead with various colleagues, finding external partners to feature each week, writing the content and getting sign off from colleagues.
       
  2. Miscellaneous (~ 1 day / week)

    In any week you might:
  • Write an article for an education magazine about how Unifrog can support students with their wellbeing during the Covid pandemic;
     
  • Tweak the text in the automated emails our system sends students with their login details;
     
  • Write the text for one of our ‘Insights reports’ – where we analyse the user behaviour of the 1 million+ students on the Unifrog platform.
     
  • Edit a 1 hour recording of a webinar that we’ve run, to fit our house style.
     

Working together

You’ll work closely with our existing content team, as well as people on our marketing, sales, account management, data analysis and strategy teams, to both improve the existing written content, and create new content.

You’ll be line-managed by the Senior Content Creator and Editor.
 

Essential skills and characteristics

  • Writing skills

    We want all the writing on our platform to fit our House Style, and in particular to be succinct, engaging, and as useful as possible for our readers. To this end you need to be able to proof-read your own content before it goes to your editor, and you need to be confident at writing your own pieces from scratch.
     
  • Project management skills

    You need to be self-motivated, able to give yourself and others deadlines, and manage a project that involves several moving parts from its initial stages to completion.
     
  • Confident and engaging in front of the camera
     
  • Video recording and editing

    You’ll need to be able to record video (eg of a zoom interview), and edit it to fit our house style, including adding graphics. We can train you in this from scratch if needed – but you need to be up for learning!
     
  • Attention to detail

    We’re really eager that all our writing adheres to our House Style, so you need to have a very keen attention to detail.
     
  • Ability to work methodically and independently

    Creating even one KHL guide is a big job; our KHL guide is make up of more than 600 guides, and it’s growing all the time. Ensuring every guide is written brilliantly is a long-term project that requires organisation, discipline and resilience.
     
  • Strong research skills

    We want every point made in our guides to be supported by concrete evidence, so you need to be able to source reliable, engaging information, and cite it accurately.
     
  • An interest in education, careers, and development.
     
  • Experience with Google Docs and MS Word.


Key benefits

  • Play a key role in democratising access to information that can positively impact young people’s lives, and get your work in front of 150,000+ people every week.
     
  • Become part of a committed, dynamic and growing team. We want to build our team for the long term – if you do well, we will do our best to make sure you want to stay at the company for a long time.
     
  • Professional development is important at Unifrog. You will define your 6-month objectives and will be supported by your line manager and the rest of the team to achieve them. You will have an annual training allowance to spend on what you need to grow and progress.
     
  • Influence the company’s direction: we love to promote great ideas, wherever they come from.
     
  • Join one of the most talked about edtech startups and help transform careers and destinations in schools.
     
  • For details of further benefits we offer our staff, please see the jobs page of our website.
     

Key details

  • £33,000 rising to £35,000 six months from the start date, dependent on performance. Salary reviews annually from then onwards.
     
  • Share in company-wide performance bonus.
     
  • Full-time.
     
  • Work remotely or (subject to Government guidelines) in our London office.
     
  • 28 days paid holiday per year; the vast majority of these need to be taken during school holidays (plus bank holidays).
     
  • Start date: as soon as possible, though we will be flexible for the right candidate.
