Your new company

A specialist publishing business who produce several weekly, bi-monthly and monthly publications, in and around the Surrey/London markets. With a niche focus towards the property sector, they publish engaging content on their subject matter but also include pieces on the wider topics of lifestyle, home decor and even food/healthy living. Due to progression within the team, they are recruiting the job of Copy Editor for their Surrey-based offices.

Your new role

As Editor you will be responsible for sourcing, writing and editing content for a series of weekly, month and twice-monthly publications. You will work alongside a handful of skilled freelance sub-editors to populate these publications, and will be responsible for writing circa 25-30 pages per month.

You will be producing print and online editorial content to enhance readership and support the sales team by adding value to existing advertisers and providing incentives to new advertisers. This will include a responsibility to write and research editorial content; work with production to manage content on the website; work with sales and production to create advertorial/promotional features; manage page production; and manage freelancers and external contributors.

What you'll need to succeed

Previous experience of holding Editor, Sub-Editor or Journalist positions. You will have a keen eye for detail, excellent proof-reading skills, and the ability to work to deadlines. Previous experience in a similar role is a necessity as you will be heading up the Editorial team.

Due to the nature of the content it is essential that you have experience of working with, or an interest in, the property industry, along with experience, or interest in, home interiors or design.

What you'll get in return

You will receive an annual salary of between £30000 - £35000, depending on experience, and benefits including holiday, pension, and free on-site parking. You will have the chance to join a company in their early phases of developing their online offering and web editorials.
