Are you a digital journalist with at least two years’ experience and a passion for traffic and engagement? Can you instinctively spot the stories that will grab the imagination of the Stylist reader? And do you know how to make the most of those stories in a digital space?

We’re looking for a talented and enthusiastic Online Writer who can spot a good story from a mile off and produce fast, compelling copy across a range of lifestyle topics.

The chosen candidate will be a self-starter and an expert when it comes to digital multi-tasking, with an ability to quickly source photos, videos and other supporting assets that make our stories work.

You’ll have an inside-out knowledge of social media, both as a story resource and in terms of crafting a brilliant sell across different platforms. You’ll also be familiar with traffic analytics and SEO best practices.

Day-to-day work will involve sourcing and writing news stories for the website, including our fashion, beauty, travel and books channels. You’ll also research and create longer-form original content, with a view to growing engagement and dwell time on site. You’ll write with flair and accuracy, whether you’re captioning a 50-strong image gallery of hair trends or crafting a hard-hitting opinion piece.

If you think you have what it takes and have at least two years’ experience as a digital journalist, send a CV, covering letter and three feature ideas that would build engagement on stylist.co.uk to Editor Anna Brech by clicking 'Apply' by Monday 15 February.

Thank you in advance for your application and please note you will only be contacted if you are shortlisted to interview.
