You will drive copy flow and timelines, and be comfortable working with a team of writers, subeditors, designers and photo editors, ensuring that all work is well written and on brief.
Although your skills may be based in traditional media you will also have a sound knowledge of new media and how best to use different mediums and the latest technology for maximum impact.

Our editors take the editorial lead and work as part of an energetic and collaborative content floor. With global clients in a host of different industries, from healthcare to finance and hotels, each day offers unique possibilities.

You might be brainstorming a creative concept, leading a team of junior writers to create 140 features for a new website in less than six weeks; working with designers to conceptualise and execute an infographic and video on a sensitive subject that is both engaging and meets regulatory approval; or working with department heads to create and deliver a multi-platform content campaign. You can be assured that no two days will ever be the same.
