Closing date:  12th April 2024
Location: RCN HQ Central London 

RCNi supports the work-life balance of our staff through our SMART Working policy outlining our approach to agile and flexible working. 

RCNi is part of the Royal College of Nursing Group, working to inspire, inform and engage nurses, nursing associates and health care assistants through compelling and relevant content.

We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, committed and experienced editor to join our dynamic Editorial Department. You will join a team of specialist journal editors responsible for commissioning and producing content to support nurses and healthcare staff to enhance their practice and improve patient/service user outcomes. Successful candidates for this job should have experience of digital publishing, commissioning peer-reviewed content, and developing and maintaining contacts in a specialist field. An understanding of the issues affecting nurses is essential as is the ability to edit articles and proofread to a high standard of accuracy and meet deadlines. You should have excellent communication skills and be willing to collaborate with departments across the organisation. 

Key objectives include:

  1. Developing a commissioning strategy for allocated specialist areas, commissioning peer-reviewed content aligned to this strategy and monitoring content through the peer-review process. 
  2. Advising on non-peer-reviewed content and activity related to specialist area(s), including working closely with other departments to identify issues in specialist areas that could be covered and/or promoted.
  3. Overseeing the production of allocated specialist journal(s), including scheduling, flat planning and approving content for publication
  4. Promoting RCNi and allocated specialist area(s) content in the media, and through social media and similar platforms.
  5. Developing effective working relationships with external stakeholders and managing editorial boards.

RCNi has an office in central London but fully supports agile and flexible working practices. 

Additional Benefits: 

  • 28 days annual leave increasing to 32 days after 2 years continuous service
  • Agile working 
  • Excellent work pension scheme 
  • Health and Fitness benefits including health and fitness allowance, access to an employee assistance provider, help@hand providing access to a remote GP service and physiotherapy services
  • A group income protection scheme
  • Carer’s leave allowance 
  • Cycle to work scheme 

At RCNi we use Applied for our recruitment. Applied aims to overcome unconscious bias in recruiting. Instead of using your CV alone, we'll be asking you to answer questions to test skills needed for the role. The responses are then anonymised and reviewed in a random order by members of our team. Responses to these questions determine whether you progress to the next stage of selection.
Should you successfully progress to the next stage of selection, this will involve a panel interview and assessment.
The Applied platform also asks some demographic questions before you start your application.  We at RCNi never see the responses to these demographic questions with your application. We only see summary statistics to help us check if our candidate pool is balanced and if everyone has an equal chance to get hired irrespective of their background. If you prefer, you can easily opt out of answering these questions.


RCNi is the premier provider of innovative and creative information solutions for the whole nursing team and associated health professionals.
