Full Time

Gardens Illustrated – the UK’s most stylish garden magazine – is looking for a talented editorial assistant to provide research, writing, fact checking and general admin support to the editorial team.

This is a great opportunity to develop skills across print and digital editions of the magazine and would suit an editorial all-rounder with a passion for communicating to a range of readers. Day-to-day responsibilities will include: general admin on behalf of the editorial team, dealing with reader queries, checking copy and factual accuracy, researching upcoming features, writing regular sections of the magazine, and maintaining systems and archives.

You will also be required to help with the day-to-day running of the magazine's website: uploading and writing compelling content for it, and helping to manage its social media presence – so being Facebook and Twitter savvy is essential.

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic when working under pressure and happy to help across the magazine, website and reader events, as well as with occasional tasks outside your usual responsibilities as and when needed.

This position will suit someone who has a natural flair for organisation and writing (Note: a writing test will form part of the interview process), and has a sharp eye for detail. You will almost certainly have experience of working in a magazine team, even if as an intern, and ideally be able to show you have an interest in gardens and gardening.
