Are you a passionate digital writer with a love of style and interiors that isn’t daunted by a fast-paced environment? We’re looking for a news writer to join the Livingetc team, writing short-form trending content that focuses on everything from the practical side of design to viral content and the latest trends.

Livingetc specialises in reporting on the now and the next in home design. It is one of the world’s leading modern interiors websites and you’ll join a thriving, growing team.

What you'll be doing…

As News Writer, you'll write expert-driven and information-rich news content that informs and inspires the Livingetc reader. You'll be tasked to come up with brilliant ideas that are right for the audience as well as delivering content quickly and accurately. You’ll have an eye for sourcing great images and the tenacity to pick up the phone to speak to some of the best experts.

You'll write short-form content for the Livingetc website to optimise against and increase traffic through Google News and Discover, as well as Social and Partnerships channels (eg Apple News). You'll pitch ideas that will drive audience and ecommerce revenues and integrate ecommerce opportunities into your content to support revenue and traffic goals.

Experience that will put you ahead of the curve…

  • Editorial experience with background in digital.
  • A keen interest in the interiors and exteriors of homes, and an ability to write for American audiences. 
  • Understanding of SEO and a keen interest in and understanding of analytical tools, which you’ll use to form your content crafting.
  • Strong writing skills - from the ability to write snappy headlines to tight grammar control, through to the ability to source the right image to draw people in.
  • Flexibility - news traffic doesn’t always peak 9-5 so some elements of the role might require a more flexible approach to hours at certain times of the year.
  • You’ll have a passion for the data side of web editing and closely monitor and interpret performance and trends.

What's in it for you…

We have a number of awesome perks available to our staff. We offer huge opportunities to learn and develop, whether through professional qualifications, exposure to incredible business projects or informal lunch & learns, hosted by your colleagues. We have a fantastic culture where we really do care about our people and want everyone to succeed. Varied roles mean you’re not pigeonholed in to one finite area but get the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills and experience

And to top it all off, not only do we offer unlimited holiday because we trust you to manage your workload and time but we also offer a share in our success whereby every colleague is eligible to join our profit pool bonus scheme - if Future hits their performance targets all colleagues may receive a bonus.

Who are we…

We’re Future. We’re 3000+ colleagues over 250+ brands speaking to 400 million people every month across the globe through websites, events and magazines. We’ve got ambitious plans that build on our growth momentum and unlock new opportunities and we’re looking for talented people who want to be a part of it.

Our Future, Our Responsibility - Inclusion and Diversity at Future

We have a voice and we’re going to use it. We promote diversity and inclusion not just in our recruitment processes, but everything we do. We’re an equal opportunity employer and we will continue to ensure our recruitment process is free of bias and our workplaces are inclusive, positive, free of discrimination and respecting of all backgrounds and beliefs. Our culture is underpinned by our values and employees - current and future - are treated with respect and fairness.

Please let us know if you need any reasonable adjustments made so we can give you the best experience!
