Content Editor - HertsLive

HertsLive is here to reboot and refresh digital journalism in Hertfordshire. The website launched as the country went into lockdown but has enjoyed astronomical audience growth since - monthly readership at the end of August was up by 156 per cent and the size of our Facebook following has doubled. The team at HertsLive specialises in brilliant, detailed, ambitious and entertaining storytelling. Our journalists love writing in-depth investigative pieces that we know our audience will engage with and remember the brand for.

We are looking for a Content Editor to join our incredibly motivated team and be a part of continuing the success we have already achieved. We need a confident content editor with the ability to lead our teams of writers, wherever they are based, to deliver content and drive audiences across all communities in the area. Your role will be to manage content, develop our people and ensure audience and registration targets are delivered every month.

We're looking for fresh ideas and new perspectives from people from a wide range of backgrounds, and we want you to lead our teams to deliver the stories you believe are important from our many communities. Here at Reach, we strongly believe in the benefits of flexible working, work/life balance and autonomy in our day to day jobs.

What will the role involve?

  • You will lead the newsroom in producing content which engages readers and reaches as many people as possible
  • You will look after the continued development of team members, supporting them to reach their full potential
  • Publishing content online
  • Managing home pages and audience engagement channels (social, newsletters etc)

Who are we looking for?

  • You will have a deep knowledge of media law and IPSO code of practice
  • We want you to have a passion for digital storytelling in local communities
  • You will have social media and SEO experience
  • You will have strong knowledge of the local area, you'll know what matters to the people that live there
  • You will be NCTJ qualified or equivalent
  • A driving licence is preferable

From the Mirror, Daily Express and OK!, to our regional titles such as the Liverpool Echo, BirminghamLive and the Manchester Evening News (plus lots more), our brands and the stories we cover are as varied as our people. We help all kinds of people share experiences through our stories because we believe this is what makes us human.

At Reach, not only will you feel better understood, you will also feel you understand other people better too.
