Working on our market-leading portfolio of children's magazines, this role requires an individual who can develop our editorial strategy and inspire our editorial teams to deliver editorial excellence. As a member of the Magazines Management Team, the Head of Editorial will be responsible for leading our editorial teams and ensuring our editorial content is created to the highest possible quality whilst delivering against our commercial goals.

The role will be responsible for ensuring our editorial content delivers for the consumer and the commercial needs of our business whilst adapting to a fast-paced and changing environment.
