Content Editor

We’re looking for a Content Editor to join the Marketing team at Reach Work – part of Reach Plc, the UK’s largest national and regional news publisher. Our portfolio includes 3 specialist job sites, GAAPweb (accountancy and finance), TotallyLegal (legal) and SecsintheCity (PAs and business support), as well as Fish4jobs, the job site of Reach Plc’s network of regional and national news brands.

In this role you’ll be responsible for optimising job advert copy across the job sites, working closely with our commercial teams to ensure optimal results for our clients, as well as writing career content for our blogs and partners and sharing these across our social channels.

Part of the marketing team, you’ll be the voice of the brands and your role will be focused on both b2b (employers & recruiters) and b2c (job seeker) audiences.

So, who are we?

We are Reach Plc, you might not have heard of us but we have probably met without you even realising it. We are home to the UK and Ireland’s most iconic digital platforms, magazines and newspapers. From the Mirror, Daily Express and OK!, to our regional titles such as the Liverpool Echo, BirminghamLive and the Manchester Evening News (plus lots more), our brands and the stories we cover are as varied as our people. We help all kinds of people share experiences through our stories because we believe this is what makes us human.

Oh, and we should probably also mention that with a monthly readership of 47 million people, Reach is the largest commercial publisher in the UK. At Reach, not only will you feel better understood, you will also feel you understand other people better too.

This role is home and hub based linked to our Canary Wharf Hub. We are therefore open to candidates based in and around the London area.
