Health Writer / Webinar Coordinator

  • Keen to use your health or science writing skills to make a difference?
  • Do you have the knowledge and instinct to tailor your writing to public or professional audiences as needed?
  • Do you have the initiative and enthusiasm to coordinate our popular webinar programme?

Breast Cancer Foundation NZ is seeking an experienced health or science writer with demonstrated ability to write for non-medical audiences, to create informative, authoritative web-based content and to coordinate our patient webinar programme. The successful candidate will likely have at least 2-3 years' experience and a body of quality content to show us.

The ability to distil health and science information into content that can be readily grasped by a wide audience is important, and ideally you can also write with authority for more expert audiences, such as medical professionals. The role is a mix of creating new content and updating existing material. For new content, we'd expect you to be proactive in identifying stories of interest; for existing and new, your aim will be to grow users' understanding of breast cancer (the leading cause of death of NZ women under 65) and our work, and to improve their experience of our website and web-based services.

Specifically, you'd look after BCFNZ's blog/news platform; write and update website content and print resources (guided by our nurses); create e-newsletters; and help prepare social media content for our digital team. Running our popular patient webinar programme is a key part of the role and will require you to take initiative, plan ahead and be unafraid of technology.

We're a hands-on team, so you'll likely find yourself involved in a whole bunch of other things, too. This is a full-time position based in our Parnell office, with opportunity for some flexitime / work-from-home.
