Full Time

At Hearst UK, there’s always more to the story. Join us as our Senior Editor (maternity cover) to start the next chapter in your career.

This role is on Cosmopolitan’s features team. Cosmopolitan is the leading monthly glossy magazine for young women and one of the most respected digital media brands in the country. We reach our readers wherever they are, be that in print, online, on social or with video.


Reporting into the features director, you will be responsible for producing four sections within the magazine, including Move, Relax, Love and Earn.

This will involve pitching and writing fresh new ideas for each of the sections, managing deadlines for each – commissioning to the team and freelancers but also writing a lot of the copy yourself.

You’ll also write a variety of content for online, from news stories to longer investigations, and should feel comfortable pivoting between both print and digital.

As part of this role, you will also pitch and write features for Cosmopolitan’s award-winning READS section, undertaking longer, full scale investigations.


You’ll be idea-driven and know how to take these ideas and put them into practice, with experience of working both online and in print.

You’ll have a keen eye for detail, be incredibly organised and be able to work quickly to tight deadlines. A background commissioning and editing, with good contacts in charities, book publishing, as well as for experts and writers, is preferable.

You’ll need to be adaptable and able to work closely with others, and to both take and give feedback on work created.

This is a senior role, so ideally you’ll have some experience working across a similar title.


At Hearst UK, you can choose from a huge range of perks and benefits that can help you learn well, work well and live well including:

  • 25 days’ holiday (with the option to buy up to 5 additional holiday days)
  • Flexible working – we’re happy to discuss options!
  • Summer working hours
  • Discounted gym membership
  • Healthcare cash plan
  • Spend a charity day with your favourite good cause
  • Life assurance and pension scheme
  • Regular socials and more!

There’s more to your story than you imagine. And the next chapter begins right here.
