ABOUT THE ROLE
In the role of Commissioning Editor, you will oversee the outsourcing of branded content campaigns across print and digital, covering the areas of wellness, fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. You will be responsible for commissioning articles and then whipping freelancers’ copy into shape. This role requires someone highly creative who knows what makes thumb-stopping content and can deliver successful, innovative campaigns. You will have great attention to detail, helping to shape sparkling copy and maintain Hearst’s top editorial standards. You will also collaborate with freelance writers and the rest of the studio to create engaging video, social, digital, and print content, as well as working closely with multiple teams across Sales, Operations and Editorial.
As such a central role to the studio team, it is vital that you have strong communication skills. Previous branded content experience is also preferred, and the ability to juggle numerous tasks, handle client feedback with a positive attitude and stay organised and in control is essential. You will need to be a fast and highly skilled editor with a keen eye for detail and strong commissioning skills, as well as a talented writer. Experience delivering successful commercial projects from pitch to publish is a sought-after plus.
