GamblingCompliance.com is looking to appoint a Managing Editor to oversee its UK, European and Asian content output.

GamblingCompliance is an established and highly-regarded online subscription news service, reporting on regulatory change within the gambling and gaming industry worldwide, both online and land-based.

Our publication is closely read by a knowledgeable audience of regulators, operators and industry advisors. This is a senior role and would suit a confident, experienced character with strong editorial judgement and a writing background, and, ideally, some knowledge of the UK and European leisure or technology industries, or another highly regulated sector.

We are offering a full time position working with a small team of journalists and two sub-editors in central London, and in cooperation with our US bureau in Washington DC. Experience of commissioning and managing freelance writers who are non-native English speakers would be helpful.

The candidate will have the ability to:

  • Write and commission stories relating to European and UK regulation
  • Build and maintain a network of source contacts
  • Work and think around issues independently and to daily deadlines
  • Collaborate with colleagues in Washington DC, Sydney and Taipei


The role provides for frequent travel to conferences and events throughout the UK, Europe and Asia.

We offer an attractive benefits package including 25 days holiday (plus public holidays), pension, life assurance, private health care, CycleScheme and a flexible approach to working.
