  • Excellent analytical skills and able to interpret data to develop meaningful content strategies for the brand.
  • Excellent management and leadership skills and a proven track record in developing people.
  • Creative and adaptable with the ability to prioritise your own workload and that of your team according to business goals and needs. Experience of handling busy deadlines and understanding of good time management to prioritise tasks and manage others.

Other information

We respect and value differences. We believe that when people from different backgrounds and with different perspectives work together, we can create the most value for our people, readers, customers, and society. If you are excited about this role but your experience doesn't align perfectly with everything listed in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyway, as you may still be a good fit for this or other roles.

We’re striving to create a more diverse and inclusive environment and to ensure our content is representative of all our audiences. We have established five internal D&I network groups to help our people feel supported and included, and to provide an open environment for people to network, mentor and exchange ideas, solutions, and experiences.

Flexible and hybrid working

We know we create great things and have fun when we come together in person and collaborate. We also know that working from home brings great benefits in terms of being able to focus on our work, and manage our personal lives around our roles. With this in mind, we have established a hybrid working pattern, with 60% of the working week spent in the office.

Our people also benefit from a flexi time policy, and a flexi location policy which gives everyone the opportunity to work from another location for two weeks during the year.

We are open to discussion about flexible working requests for any flexibility needs not covered by these policies.

Company benefits include

  • Pension contribution matched to 5%
  • Season ticket loan
  • Hybrid working pattern, flexi start/finish time
  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays, plus Christmas closure, plus your birthday off
  • Option to buy/sell up to 5 days holiday a year

  • 4x life assurance

Our values

We strongly believe that work is not just about what we achieve, but how we achieve it. We want our people to thrive and develop, and we want to effect positive change in the world.

We have an ambitious and robust sustainability strategy, which includes a zero-to-waste, renewable-energy-fuelled office at Eagle House, the complete removal of single-use plastics from our supply chain, and a roadmap to be fully carbon neutral by 2030.

To put that spirit at the heart of our business, we recently co-created a set of values with input from everyone here. Our values are:

  • Be kind
  • Always curious
  • Be the best we can be
