Working across LADbible Group’s video channels, you will be responsible for proofreading and fact-checking video content before it’s published online, as well as ascertaining that all content meets the ethical standards and commercial requirements of the brand.

- Working with the wider video team, including Social Editors and Video Editors, to ensure all content meets our ethical standards and commercial obligations

- Working with Channel Managers and Traffic Managers to adhere to video publishing schedules

- Always adhering to brand guidelines when posting content, ensuring all content is reflective of LADbible Group’s unique tone of voice

Skills and experience we’d like you to have:

- Experience of sub-editing/proofreading, preferably in a journalistic capacity

- An understanding of viral video, popular/meme culture and contemporary sensitivities

- The ability to shape a story that’s informative, entertaining and - where necessary - sensitively told

- Strong copywriting skills

- Excellent written and spoken communication skills

- Strong attention to detail

- Working understanding of media law

At LADbible Group we've rolled out blended working which means the majority of departments across the business (including London, Manchester and International offices) work in the office 3 days per week.

LADbible Group is an equal opportunities employer. We are determined to create a diverse group at all levels of our company and we welcome all members of the community to apply for openings with us. As the leading social youth publisher, we have a powerful global platform to better represent our audience and enable those that do not have equal opportunities, to have their voices heard. As a business, we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce, in an environment where everyone feels comfortable to be themselves.
