You will have the chance to delve into our history and write engaging and memorable interpretive material, enabling our visitors to experience our Parks like never before.

As a Content Producer, you will use your creativity and skills to support the interpretation of The Royal Parks.
Working closely with the Interpretation Manager, you will research the history and biodiversity of The Royal Parks and write and edit interpretive material that will inform and inspire our visitors through engaging storytelling.
Creating content for both online and in-park audiences, you will produce digital and physical interpretation using a range of formats including information panels and interactive multimedia experiences.

Additionally, you will:
- Assist with signage infrastructure projects in the parks including liaising with external design, manufacture and installation teams
- Assist with the digitisation of historic material belonging to The Royal Parks

- Excellent writing, editing and proof-reading skills
- The ability to write with creative flair and interpret sites in imaginative ways
