Do you want to combine your passions for writing and for France? We are looking for a staff writer to join Archant’s France portfolio...
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Archant’s market-leading France portfolio, covering everything from travel and property, food and wine, to moving to France. Our titles include France Magazine, Living France and French Property News, along with the websites CompleteFrance.com and FrancePropertyShop.com.
Candidates will need to demonstrate a passion for France and will ideally have good French written and verbal skills. Educated to degree level, preferably with an NCTJ or NCE qualification, you should have experience of writing for a magazine, newspaper or website and be a team player with excellent communication skills. The ability to manage a number of tasks simultaneously, while remaining calm under pressure, is fundamental.
The role will involve writing features and regular pages for both print and online, sub-editing contributed features, posting on our social media pages, and picture research. In addition to your responsibilities in the office, you may be required to attend exhibitions, press events and press trips so a valid passport and driving licence are essential.
In return we offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including five weeks annual leave and a contributory pension and life assurance scheme (after qualifying period). A wide range of voluntary benefits include a Cycle to Work scheme, Childcare Vouchers, Westfield Health Scheme and Archant Gold (charity matched funding).
