Stylus.com offers inspiration and intelligence for all consumer-led industries. It’s the next-generation creative resource for innovative professionals and businesses around the world.
Stylus is the only business-to-business creative intelligence resource that provides cross-vertical content for more than 20 consumer industries – from retail, product development (home, industrial design, fashion, beauty), technology and gastronomy, to hospitality, advertising, architecture, sports and more.
Our global content is researched and analysed by a team of industry experts with strategic and commercial insight into these consumer industries. We are looking for an Editor for our new Arts & Pop Culture section (the role is ideally full time but we are open to part-time contracts).
This position is a hands-on role, requiring previous experience as a writer and editor. Exceptional organisational skills, research ability, flexibility in covering numerous topics and – above all – the enthusiasm to help develop one of Stylus.com’s key content sections are essential.
The Arts & Pop Culture section will provide Stylus subscribers with insights and expert global analysis from the worlds of Arts & Graphics, TV, Film, Music, Youth/Tween Culture, Media & Pop Culture and Digital Culture. We highlight the popular cultural movements and visual inspirations that inject fresh thinking into a business, whether for product design or consumer strategy. We reveal how these worlds shape the cultural movements and consumer insights that impact our subscribers’ business decisions.
The Editor must have specialist knowledge and significant experience working in many of the areas covered in the Arts & Pop Culture section. You will have a passion for pop culture and the arts, an analytical mind, strong writing skills and a globally focused knowledge of these industries.
You will support the Managing Editor – Culture in planning content for this section, constantly bringing fresh ideas to the table. You will be expected to write, commission and edit reports and develop larger Concept direction under the guidance of the Managing Editor.
Applicants should have an address book full of relevant contacts, a passion for the creative industries, and the vision needed to explore current and future directions in popular culture and the arts.
Applicants should show commercial understanding of Stylus.com’s business. You may have had previous experience working on print or digital publications, but the ability to transition to an online b2b environment must be demonstrated. The flexibility required when working in a young, dynamic online business and with a growing global team is also essential.
Please send a cover letter, CV and details of your current salary to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also include writing samples and a list of five feature proposals you think will be of interest to Stylus subscribers.
