We’re looking for two talented and ambitious staff writers to join up with and super charge our newest and most exciting online brand for the future – RealHomes.com. Reporting to the Global Editor-in-Chief and working closely with the Lifestyle Editor, you will be the backbone of the editorial team – writing content from news and reviews, to buying guides, deals posts, and ‘how to’ articles – plus everything in between. It’ll be your job to provide content for anyone and everyone looking to achieve something with their home – whether it’s working out how to renovate a kitchen (or choose and install a new one), working out which garden furniture or barbecue to buy in time for the arrival of summer, or how to furnish and fit-out the perfect man cave! Your mission will be to develop content that’s tailored for people to find it via search engines or social networks, so you’re always writing for a defined audience and helping people get the advice they need, choose the products that are right for them – and to always find the best deals online. You will be a skilled (and fast) writer with first class attention to detail and the ability to juggle different tasks and initiatives at the same time. You will have a thirst for a challenge and the desire to learn new skills. You’ll be expected to manage and deliver small content projects such as a new suite of trend-based buying guides or deals articles and so top time management, organisational and communication skills are a must. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone starting out in a writing job with a desire to quickly develop the kind of digital skills that are becoming more crucial as audiences progressively move online as they shop and seek buying advice.
