We're the UK's leading charity for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Right now, an estimated 500,000 people in the UK are living with a lifelong disease that many people have never heard of and for which there is no known cure. Because of the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding these diseases, thousands of people are suffering in silence. But they're not alone. We're here for them. And we're not going anywhere until we've beaten Crohn's and Colitis for good.

As Knowledge and Information Editor at Crohn's & Colitis UK, you'll join a skilled and dedicated team. You'll work collaboratively to produce a diverse information portfolio including printed publications, web content, digital tools and videos. You'll work closely with healthcare professionals and other stakeholders to ensure our material is effectively promoted and distributed to those who need it most. If this sounds exciting – apply now.

About you
