Creative HEAD, Commercial Editor
We are Alfol, a 20-year-old publishing and events business specialising in the professional hairdressing industry.
The most dynamic and respected brand in our sector, we connect clients like L'Oréal, ghd and Dyson with hair professionals throughout the UK and Ireland via an ever-expanding portfolio of award-winning print magazines, influential digital and social media channels and exciting live events, including the Most Wanted & The It List awards and our annual Salon Smart business networking weekend.
We're looking for an experienced, thorough and forward-thinking Commercial Editor to help us continue to build on this success. Working alongside our editorial and events team in our busy, fast-paced office in Shoreditch:
- You’ll need to be able to craft campaigns for advertisers looking to thrill our audiences, so writing skills are essential.
- You can take those writing skills as far as you would like –creating and managing editorial and commercial content, from advertorial to full-blown supplements
- You'll also need to able to sell space in our magazines, call in and check artwork – it’s the bread and butter of the job
- Maintain relationships with our existing customers and identify areas for new business - whether that's face to face (hairdressing is a very sociable industry), on the phone or via email.
We think this is a role that suits someone with a background in client management and advertorial/promotional content creation, contract publishing or PR.
In return, we'll provide you with a good salary and commission package on top, plus a company credit card for judicious wining and dining of key clients.
