DEPARTMENT:  Digital                 

REPORTING TO: Head of Digital

Role Overview

We're hiring a Premium Content Editor to join the HELLO! online team on a maternity cover role. We're looking for an editor with at least 6 years' experience working in a busy newsroom, used to juggling responsibilities and managing a team.

Main responsibilities will be focused on premium content such as Digital Issues and Digital Covers, digital repurposing of magazine content, digital subscription content and newsletters.

This is a fast-paced role where the ability to keep to tight deadlines and to multi-task is an absolute must.

You will also be responsible for the editorial content of premium newsletters. You’ll work with magazine editors to ensure any magazine exclusives that could work cross platform are adapted appropriately and scheduled for the best performance.

As HELLO!’s paid for premium digital offering is developed during the year (via an app) you will help strategise new and exciting content ideas which could be added to bundles to help further drive conversion and revenues.
