A bit about us…

We have been the leading industry title for more than 30 years and have operated as an online-only magazine since 2011, bringing designers all the latest news, views, insight and inspiration.

 

The Role…

This is a varied role in an exciting sector. You could be interviewing product designers and graphic designers one day, and exhibition curators and start-up company founders another. You will be prepared to write across a broad range of subjects.

The role has a bias towards long form content, features and research-led pieces, although you will write some news. You’ll show a natural ability for finding leads and generating your own ideas. You must be able to work to tight deadlines and juggle your own diary arrangements, which will extend to press conferences, events and editorial meetings, sometimes in the evenings. The role will involve some travel.

As a team, we constantly think about how to create enticing, original content, and come up with creative solutions for digital publishing. We are a small team, and you will take on exciting opportunities from the get-go. You will report in directly to Design Week’s editor.

 

What we look for in you…

  • A journalism undergraduate or postgraduate qualification is desirable, and you will have several years of experience working on an editorial desk, with a portfolio of published work to share.
  • You’ll be a fast learner and able to get to grips with in-house tools quickly. You’ll have knowledge of search engine optimisation (SEO), content management systems (CMS), basic Photoshop, and social media including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.
  • You’ll be comfortable working as part of an editorial team. When you’re not producing your own polished copy you’ll be happy pitching in with other tasks such as helping with proofing, newsletters and informally managing one reporter.
  • The chosen candidate will have a broad understanding of what Design Week is, the kind of content we produce and who it’s targeted at. A general interest in the arts, culture and the creative industries in preferable.
