Content Manager
Job Type
Full Time

As a result of growth in membership, we are recruiting for the new position of content manager. The role is ideally suited to someone with B2B media, corporate communication, journalism or research experience.

This role will oversee all aspects of content creation from writing fresh and compelling content to managing the production pipeline.

This is an opportunity to shape, enhance and make your mark on a portfolio of content offerings, including practical case studies, benchmarking reports, meeting summaries, and short-form web blogs.

The role reports to William Sanders, co-founder and is responsible for the coordination of content across all platforms including virtual meetings, intelligence, benchmarking, private messaging and the member portal.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:


Risk Leadership Network’s Intelligence platform is a searchable database of peer-contributed case studies, tools and templates. Content is developed from interviews with members, current and former senior risk managers and subject matter experts from around the world.

The content manager will be required to:

  • Work closely with Risk Leadership Network’s team of network managers to manage the interview and content pipeline. 
  • Interview members and other subject matter experts and personally produce Intelligence articles.
  • Take a lead role in managing the Intelligence content taxonomy, tagging rules, interface, including uploading content to the Intelligence platform. 
  • Edit, and quality control all content to house-style before uploading to the Intelligence platform  
  • Brief all interviewees on the interview process, content structure, and other expectations, as necessary. 
  • Manage a team of freelance writers to manage content generation. 
  • Work closely with the risk research and analysis officer to ‘join the dots’ across common content themes. For example, incorporating meeting findings into existing tools and templates; linking new meeting visuals to existing tools, templates and frameworks in the Intelligence platform (and across all other platforms), and producing ‘wrap’ pieces that bring together case studies under a common theme.
  • Generate and execute ideas for Intelligence case studies, tools, templates and work closely with the co-founder and risk research and analysis officer on the production of benchmarking reports.


Risk Leadership Network’s programme of virtual meetings brings together small cohorts of risk manager peers to collectively share insights and brainstorm new ideas and solutions to commonly-shared challenges.

Key elements of output from these meetings are captured by the risk research and analysis officer.

The content manager will be required to:

  • Work closely with the risk research and analysis officer to inform and incorporate output from virtual meetings into the wider content mix (Intelligence, member portal, blog etc) .   This is likely to include diagrams, flowcharts and mind maps. 


Risk Leadership Network’s Member Portal is a ‘one-stop shop’ which provides members with access to all Member-only service offerings, including virtual meetings, Intelligence platform, private messaging, and Network Assistance.

Risk Leadership Network’s private messaging app provides members with on-demand access to other members and subject matter experts via a secure and neutral platform. Here, members exchange knowledge, advice and resources in real time to help each other with their most pressing issues.

The content manager will be required to:

  • Take ownership of both the member portal and private messaging group creating regular posts that highlight and inform members of new content. 
  • Manage and write short web blogs based on Intelligence interviews and case studies, and member meetings, with clear call to actions.
  • Play a proactive role in generating ideas to increase engagement on the Member Portal and private messaging app.


The position would suit a highly organised individual who has a proven track record in delivering and managing content across a range of platforms.

Using this experience, you will deliver and enhance our existing content portfolio while identifying opportunities for innovation, helping us to build a world-class membership network for risk leaders.

The position would appeal to someone who would relish being a key member of a growing team, where their opinion matters and who would directly contribute to the development of an ambitious independently-owned company.

The role requires outstanding written and verbal communication skills.

Whilst it will be home-based probably to the end of 2021, the post holder should be permitted to work in the UK and be able to travel into a Central London hub at least one day every fortnight or as required.

Candidates who would prefer to work on a flexible i.e. less than a full time basis will also be considered.

As an employee of the company, the successful candidate will benefit from a competitive salary and importantly, the opportunity to be part of the company’s share scheme (this operates on a non-contributory basis) after a successful qualifying period.
