Job description

Fathercraft  want to change the perceptions of male caring and fatherhood and support more partners to get involved because it creates value for everyone. Supporting men to be equal and active parents from the start is key for gender equality. Research from Sweden suggests that every additional month of paternity leave taken by fathers increases the mother’s lifetime earnings by 6.7% (Johansson, 2010).

Yet despite increasing willingness and interest in taking an active parenting role, in 2022, dads spent, on average, just 55 minutes per day with their children (ONS, 2023). This is largely due to the fact that one in three working dads don’t feel comfortable talking to their employer about family commitments and/or are not adequately supported to be the best dads and partners they can be.

  • As a mission-driven, digital-first company, Fathercraft produces a huge amount of content ranging from information, advice, blogs, reviews, courses and support through our website hub and our Flagship platform Father’s Ed. At the heart of what we do is the provision of accurate, up-to-date information on a diverse range of topics related to parenting. We are looking for a passionate individual interested in joining our editorial team.

The benefits to you: * Experience volunteering within a professional organisation * A sense of satisfaction and pride for helping to make a valuable difference * Develop Content Editor and leadership experience * References for future employers Skills, experience and qualities * Experience in content writing/digital journalism/editor roles * Excellent written communication skills * Experience with website CMS and Google Analytics What difference will you make? Father’s Ed and our Website content are the most important parts of Fathercraft and the editorial team is the key driver of the change we want to make. Volunteers joining the team will be directly involved in helping us to raise awareness and generate social change while supporting new parents and families, ultimately helping their children thrive. Join us in supporting families as they navigate the difficult journey of parenthood and support the next generation of fathers to parent out loud. Together, we can make a difference.
