Do you want to take Britain's most vibrant interiors title to the next level?

If you are passionate about women’s interest magazines, are educated to degree level, have an interest in period homes, interiors, design and heritage, are great at thinking on your feet and are bursting with feature ideas – then you could be exactly who we are looking for.

With a strong eye for detail and an excellent grasp of grammar and the English language, you'll be able to meet and thrive on hitting tight deadlines. Helping to produce 12 issues a year, organisation will be your middle name.

You will need to be versatile. In a typical day, you could be researching and producing well-written and interesting features, picture editing, sourcing competition prizes, interviewing experts, and managing and developing our social media presence. Working in a small team, you will support the editor and deputy editor, so a positive work ethic and can-do attitude is essential.

You will be able to provide support across all aspects of production, from commissioning features and briefing contributors to working closely with the advertising and design teams, whilst keeping the Period Ideas reader's needs at the forefront of your mind.

A confident and creative writer, you'll know exactly how to add sparkle to regular features as well using your social media savvy to appeal to our followers. If writing engaging copy and making your mark on a national publication sounds like a challenge you'd relish, we want to hear from you.

Please contact Kate Nudds by completing the application form below, submitting two previous examples of your writing, a CV and covering letter, explaining why you are the best person for the job.
