As The Jackal looks to become the UK’s most relevant and influential upmarket men’s publication, we are keen to find a Social Media Editor to promote our content across our social channels and help to build up The Jackal’s digital community.

Launched in 2017, The Jackal aims to be the go-to publication for upmarket, professional, urban men with a focus on style, culture, career and life in London.

Our readers aim to be the most successful versions of themselves and have an appreciation for the finer things in life - and we regularly work with the most covetable brands in the world such as Rolex, Cartier, Omega, Bentley, Audi BMW, Bollinger, Hugo Boss and Gieves & Hawkes.

We are passionate about creating a magazine that feels different to what’s currently available to men right now - a publication that truly reflects how a new generation of men live and work in London today.

To do that we need to get the word out there and engage with our digital audience, keeping them up-to-date with the products and people they need to know about.

If you’re plugged into what men today are looking for and have a strong grasp of how to reach them using social media, we want to hear from you.
