We are looking for a bright, creative and experienced content editor to join the Which.co.uk and Which? editorial team in central London.

What will you do?

Conceptualize, commission and edit reviews, investigative features and news stories for Which.co.uk and Which? magazine about home and technology products and services.

You will be as comfortable editing one of our award-winning investigations as you are helping our researchers translate complex product testing data into accessible jargon-free product reviews.

Reporting into the Head of Content Strategy, and working day-to-day with a large team of editors and expert researchers, this content editor role will also be responsible for:

  • Using website analytics data, from platforms such as Google Analytics, to monitor the performance of your content and commission improvements.
  • Training and inspiring our team of writer/researchers to produce great content.
  • Contributing to our overall content strategy, to help sculpt how Which? covers emerging and existing issues.
  • Helping to commission the original research that underpins all our expert content, from product lab tests to customer surveys.
  • Ensuring our free-to-view website content is of the highest possible quality and acts as a first rate shop window to our subscriber-only content.
  • Collaborating across the business to create better customer experiences, promote our content and raise brand awareness.


What is on offer?

A highly competitive salary + market leading benefits including 28 days annual leave, an interest-free season ticket loan, life assurance, and a pension scheme that increases to 11% after you’ve been here for a year.

You’ll also get the chance to develop your career. And you can work every day knowing that you’re playing your part in making consumers as powerful as the organisations they deal with. The opportunity to travel up to 4 times per annum is also available for the right individual.
