Editor-in-Chief

You’ll be based in London, sit at the very heart of the organization, and report directly to the CEO.
Salary: £27k - £32k depending on experience.

We need a people-person with great communication skills, imagination and enthusiasm, who relishes responsibility: you'll also be managing our small editorial team.

We hope we offer you the chance to make a difference at the very heart of one of the fastest-growing, multi-award winning news start-ups around today.
