Job Description

Haymarket Media Group is a global media, data information and analytics company. Our purpose is to create trusted, premium specialist media brands that build powerful communities and drive valuable conversations.

Haymarket Business Media’s award-winning B2B brand Horticulture Week is the leading provider of high-value business information for the £25bn UK horticulture and landscaping industries. 

The Role

We are now looking for a senior business reporter to lead our coverage of the commercial landscape market – from reporting on major landscape-led regeneration projects such as London’s Kings Cross redevelopment - to researching and creating high value data reports such as our Top 100 Landscape Contractors ranking. 

The successful applicant will be responsible for:

  • Tracking and reporting on the major landscape construction and management projects in the UK
  • Researching and writing weekly analyses on key developments affecting the landscape market, major landscape projects and leading landscape businesses
  • Developing excellent contacts with leading landscape designers, contractors and suppliers in order to report on their projects.
  • Reporting on major tenders and other business opportunities for our professional landscape audience
  • Delivering our exclusive Top 100 Landscape Contractors research report and related products
  • Maintaining a strong focus on internal HBM analytics to understand which content is most highly valued by our audience
  • You will need to be numerate and confident with data – and have the necessary skills to take full responsibility for the successful delivery of research and editorial projects to the high quality that our audience expects.
  • Deadlines are everything in our business so you’ll need to be an expert at time management - and able to thrive under pressure.

Essential attributes include: 

  • Excellent interpersonal skills 
  • Proven experience of writing for a professional or business audience
  • A recognised journalistic qualification or equivalent experience

Other benefits include:

  • Competitive salary
  • Comprehensive training and career development programme
  • 25 days holiday per year (increasing 1 day per year of service up to 30 days)
  • Generous contributory pension scheme
  • Season ticket loan on passing probationary period
  • Flexible benefits scheme to suit your lifestyle
