The Hired Guns are seeking a versatile, engaging Internal Communications Writer for a fully-remote, part-time (10+ hours per week) contract opportunity with a top NYC medical institution.
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
The number of people working for this prestigious hospital system rivals the population of a small country. Combine that with the fast-paced, ever-changing nature of medical care, and you can see why keeping all those folks informed and up to date is a considerable challenge. And that, my friend, is where you come in! When you swing into action as an Internal Communications Writer, you’ll immediately become a valued player on a vast range of long- and short-form writing projects, including internal website/intranet copy, articles, newsletters, even ghostwriting email announcements to staff from senior leadership.
If you have the chops to juggle writing emails, employee-facing web content, and breaking news alerts with an engaging style and a surgeon’s precision, then this Internal Communications Writer opportunity may be the gig for you!
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
You’re a top-notch writer with a strong news sensibility who writes in a plain-spoken, engaging style and understands how to write brief yet informative material. A lot of pedigrees would be a great fit here (PR, comms, journalism, or marketing), and while experience with healthcare or medicine would be a plus, we’d also be happy to see any background where you had to show versatility and quick-on-the-uptake-ness with sometimes technical material, delivering it in layperson’s terms (science journalism or financial journalism comes to mind).
You love the freelancer lifestyle and have 10+ hours available on your dance card from week to week. We get that this is part-time, but some deliverables are time-sensitive, so be aware there can be some demands for quick turnaround and a need for somewhat predictable availability for consultation and collaboration with the institution’s communications team.
The Inside Skinny
Why you should make room in your busy schedule to take on this gig!
You’ll be collaborating with a great team of people while pursuing an interesting variety of writing projects, all while supporting an organization that is providing world-class medical care. It’ll be a great add to your freelance portfolio!
