We’re looking for a razor-sharp Senior Content Editor to join our Marketing team on a hybrid basis in Kings Cross, London.

As Senior Content Editor, you’ll oversee all editorial content published on cinch.co.uk by our team of writers: motoring guides, car reviews, Top 10s, news stories and more.

You’ll likely have a digital journalism/editorial background – able to spot a typo a mile off and a proud member of the grammar police. You’ll also be familiar with editorial SEO best practices, ideally with time spent ‘on the tools’ doing keyword research, planning and/or brief-writing. 

If this gets your engine firing, we’d love to hear from you.

Key responsibilities

  • Editing long-form motoring content, including proof-reading and feeding back to writers
  • Making evidenced-based decisions on content production plans and priorities 
  • Coaching writers in how to write more impactful copy
  • Ownership of the cinch style guide and guardian of how cinch’s tone of voice is used editorially
  • Responsibility for ensuring legal compliance of all editorial content
  • Editing press releases, landing pages and other copy as required
  • Ad-hoc short-form copywriting for emails and social media
  • Ad-hoc SEO keyword planning and guidance

Necessary skills and experience

  • Experience in similar role(s) for consumer-facing brand(s)
  • Exceptional editorial skills – grammar, spelling, sentence structure, etc.
  • Working understanding of on-page SEO best-practices (e.g. metadata, internal linking)
  • Understanding of legal publishing guidelines
  • Strong copywriting skills
  • Highly organised and process-driven
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal

Nice-to-haves

  • Interest in motoring and the automotive industry
  • Awareness of content design best practices
  • Analytical thinker – able to interrogate performance data to make evidence-based decisions 
  • Experience working with Product teams to improve the presentation of digital content
  • Brief writing for, and editing of, SEO long-form content
