ABOUT THE ROLE
In this digital-first role you will be responsible for leading the creation of our award-winning Love & Sex content across all platforms. As well as overseeing the daily news and features output online (including creating and commissioning e-commerce led galleries and articles, SEO targeted content and unique features that speak directly to our audience), you will contribute to print, social, video and be the face of all things Sex and Relationships across the Cosmopolitan brand.
This will include maintaining and building our LGBTQ+ content, working on cross-platform ideas and brand extensions, and ensuring Cosmopolitan remains known for its innovative, forward-thinking sex and relationships content.
You’ll work closely with the Features Director and Executive Editor to ensure this content works across both print and digital, as well as serving commercial needs, while leading the Love & Sex e-commerce strategy.

- You’ll be open-minded, inclusive and willing to explore new topics, test products and write first-person pieces when required, as well as having a keen eye for data and be able to build and maintain our SEO strategy.
- You’ll work closely with external contacts, PRs and writers, to ensure that Cosmopolitan’s Love and Sex content covers the broad range of interests our reader has, and balances their varied needs from commissioning comment and features pieces based on current talking points, to building our LGBTQ+ content.
