About the role
We want people of all ages to have amazing National Trust experiences. We want to fire imaginations, keep people up-to-date and share our ever-evolving story with new and existing audiences. That’s where you’ll come in. Sitting within the media and external affairs division, our National Trust magazine is the third highest circulation magazine in the UK. You’ll make the most of this important communication tool which reaches out to our four million plus members. We want you to champion the work we’re doing here, working closely with your team to put together the best possible publication which goes out three times per year. Using all your insight and understanding, your expertise and enthusiasm, you’ll use your brilliant ideas to make sure content is relevant and engaging. And, with an eye on revenue streams, you’ll help to support the income raised through magazine advertising, whilst also working hard to promote our own income generating activities (especially retail and catering). Along with your day-to-day responsibilities, you’ll work with our Head of Publishing to develop the future direction of the magazine, making sure any digital developments complement our existing print offering.
In this role you’ll be based at Heelis for three days per week. For the remaining days, you’ll need to have a flexible approach to your working location.
You make things happen – and you’ve the track record to prove it. With a love of print, you’ve previously worked as an editor or deputy editor on a consumer or membership magazine, so you’ll have plenty of experience of putting together engaging content. You’ll have an awareness of relevant aspects of copyright and Intellectual Property law too. Your finger’s firmly on the digital pulse so you’ll be able to advise us on how best to pursue our digital ambitions. As our magazine focuses on the countryside, coast, gardens, houses, collections and food we’d also like you to have a love for these subject areas.
Already bursting with great ideas, you’ll have the confidence needed to inspire everyone around you to get behind them. You’re brilliantly organised and always work accurately to tight deadlines and the highest standards. And of course you care about our places and spaces like we do, which is why you’ll love this opportunity to make a real impact on our publishing activity, and the wider effect this has on the Trust.
We expect a lot, but we’ll offer a great deal in return, starting with stimulating and challenging work and the opportunity to help us achieve our bold ambitions. We value your contribution, recognise the importance of a work-life balance, and are committed to your continued development. You can also look forward to free admission to all our incredible places, plus a helpful 20% off at our shops, cafes and restaurants. But they’re just the benefits we can tell you about here. There are lots more at www.nationaltrustrewardsandbenefits.org.uk
Here at the National Trust, we want even more people to enjoy our extraordinary places. We want people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved with them, be inspired by them, and love them as much as we do. That’s why we’ve put some bold ambitions in place. We want everyone in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to feel like a member of the National Trust and, by 2020, we want to have grown our membership to five million.
