Do you know how to use the apostrophe correctly? Do you annoy your friends explaining the difference between ‘less’ and ‘fewer’? Do you spot spelling mistakes from across the room? If so, this may be the perfect job for you.
We are looking for another Content Editor to join our small but beautiful editing team. Our content editors cover a wide and varied portfolio of clients with varying topics.
The role requires an individual with particularly strong English spelling and grammar skills, a real eye for detail, and the ability to edit news articles and content for websites – and write them when the need arises. There will also be a need to use social media and to transcribe/create subtitles for podcast episodes/videos each week.
Candidates should be well organised, have the confidence and ability to liaise with our writers, meet and arrange content briefs with current and prospective clients, and have experience of hitting multiple and ongoing deadlines. This role will suit an individual keen to work within a fast-moving and ambitious company.
In return, you will be part of a creative team in a dynamic business, in a role that offers a great opportunity to be part of that expansion and receive a leading benefits package (see Jobs and Careers). If you have a good work ethic and want to be in an environment that will let you express your individuality and encourage you to excel in your professional field, then Engage Web is the company for you.
Previous experience is desired but is not essential; full training will be provided.
