BusinessCar, the UK’s best information source for company car managers, is looking for a Features Writer / Editor to join its growing team of journalists.

Part of Global Trade Media, BusinessCar is a fortnightly B2B publication for company car managers and those executives who have responsibility for the fleet and travel operations within their organisation.

This is a great opportunity for a driven and creative journalist who is looking for a new challenge and enjoys the fast-paced nature of the motoring industry.

The roles key responsibilities include

  • Creating relevant feature ideas for BusinessCar and What Van readers
  • Bringing those ideas to life through writing or commissioning
  • Building relationships with the publications readers and automotive suppliers
  • Attending a variety of car and van industry events including conferences, motor shows and new car launches both in the UK and abroad
  • Conducting interviews with senior industry personnel
  • Supporting the BusinessCar and What Van editorial teams


This is a very busy role that will see you working across a variety of topics and platforms, the successful candidate will already have a proven record as a writer within the automotive industry; experience in a B2B publication is preferred but not essential.

First-rate organisation and communication skills are a must along with experience of both digital and print publishing.

We’re a small team and the right candidate will need to be self-sufficient and used to working to tight deadlines. Although our offices are based in Sidcup, your diary will be stacked so you should expect to be out on the road often, flexible working is also available for the right person.

Putting the fleet manager at the centre of everything we do is key to writing for BusinessCar, the work of the features editor will need to strike the right balance between being insightful and informative, while also delivering creative flair and writing features, road tests and news stories which will engage with our readers.
