Sub-editor

London, England, United Kingdom · Editorial

Description

At carwow, we’re aiming to create the best car-buying experience in the world. Buying a car is normally the second biggest financial decision people face (after buying a house), and it’s a complex one. There are many issues people face throughout the process, and we aim to fix them.

We’re a driven, energetic startup with a team of 200+ based in London, Munich and Madrid. We are backed by some of Europe’s leading VCs and have raised over £48m in funding since we launched, so we’re growing fast. We’re constantly asking ourselves how we can make carwow better, so if you’re curious, motivated, and want to help us change the future of car buying, get in touch. It’s the chance to be at the start of something huge.

The role

We’re looking for a full-time Sub-editor to join our editorial team in London Victoria. You will be part of a 13-strong team producing content for carwow’s website, social and youtube channels.

As a Sub-editor, you will take control of our sub-editing process across all our editorial channels. Reporting to the website editor, you will ensure our editorial is accurate, consistent and easy for car buyers to understand.

On a day to day basis you will sub-edit car reviews, news stories and video scripts. You will help prepare engine and specification material ahead of video shoots as well as write updates to existing car reviews and blog posts. You will also have the opportunity to write news and advice articles and you may occasionally be asked to attend product launches on behalf of carwow, but please note this is primarily an office-based role.
