Job Summary

Working out of our Bath office and reporting to the UK Editor-in-Chief, you will primarily be responsible for writing articles in both PC Gamer magazine and on PCGamer.com. From reviews of the latest games to online news stories and cover features, you’ll write about everything across the spectrum of PC gaming, and have the chance to make your mark on a world-renowned games media outlet. We want to find someone who feels confident covering PC gaming in all forms, from blockbuster games to indies.

You will be responsible for meeting all your deadlines and liaising with editors to ensure you produce high-quality content that meets the needs of the readers. We’ll help you understand the principles of SEO and how to use social media to make your work connect with our readership. You’ll hone your writing and editing skills from working in-office with an experienced editorial team. In working across print and online, you’ll develop a broad range of contacts in the games industry, and learn to readily pitch ideas to your editors.

This role is a great fit for anyone looking to start their writing career. We’re looking for a fresh voice on PC Gamer. We want to see at least one games-focused writing sample provided in your application, as well as a covering letter explaining why you feel you’re suitable for the role.

The job requires attention to detail, good organisation skills, a calm approach, self-discipline, and a passion for PC gaming. You may also be required to assist with the production of video-based articles, podcasts, and event coverage.
