Description of the contract

ORR would like a writer to work with us on the following pieces of work: Message crafting and refinement in collaboration with the ORR comms team and periodic review team (likely to be workshop based with some drafting afterwards, although we would be interested in other delivery mechanisms if appropriate). One output might be a periodic review style guide to define how we say everything in relation to this process. Advising the comms team and periodic team on the style and drafting of the full regulatory announcement. This is likely to be a 200 page technical document predominantly targeted at the industry and interested parties. Despite its technical audience it still needs to have relatively accessible copy and be of high quality. Copy editing may also be required Drafting consumer facing documents alongside the technical which achieve the ORRs objective to start becoming more consumer focused, accessible and transparent in what it does. We do not have a fixed view on what the products would be, but clearly there is likely to be a combination of digital and traditional publications. Producing a suite of targeted communications materials for parliamentarians in Westminster, Wales and Scotland and for broader stakeholders before the final determination in published in June (likely timing March/April)
