Job Description


On GamesRadar+ we always aim to inform, entertain, and inspire through our mix of news, reviews, features, tips, buying guides, and videos. We are not condescending, elitist, assumptive, or deliberately argumentative. We are a celebratory site that reminds readers that games and entertainment are a force for good and for bringing people together. We’re that voice of your pal bringing you cool tidbits of game trivia, awesome secrets to find, hidden gems, behind-the-scenes details, and more as we guide you to the best things to be watching, playing, and reading.

What you’ll be doing…

As Managing Editor, Reviews and Evergreens, you’ll be responsible for growing, maintaining, and enhancing the evergreen content output of the site. This will require intricate knowledge of SEO tools, including Google Analytics, and the ability to work independently and with our Audience Development team to identify missing gaps and opportunities.

The role will also include the management of the gaming review vertical, including commissioning and editing reviews for key titles for the site. This will also involve working closely with the Senior Guides Co-ordinator and Video Producer for coverage of the major releases. You’ll also be responsible for co-ordinating with the Entertainment Editor on TV and Movie reviews, and liaising with the Hardware Team for their review strategy.

Experience that will put you ahead of the curve…

  • A passion for – and thorough understanding of – Gaming and Entertainment.
  • Good knowledge of the key social channels, and how to use them to best amplify GR’s content.
  • Experience of managing a small team of games content writers, and the passion to be able to develop their skillsets.
  • Ability to sub and write high quality engaging, relevant content.
  • Experience managing freelancers and monthly budget management.
  • A deep understanding of SEO best practices and the ability to quickly develop these skills.
  • A fantastic contacts book and good relationships with industry figures.
  • Ability to use Google Analytics to report on and inform content strategies.
  • Knowledge and experience of content management systems.
  • Able to interpret third-party data and use audience behavioral data to inform content strategy.

What’s in it for you…

We have a number of awesome perks available to our staff. We offer huge opportunities to learn and develop, whether through professional qualifications, exposure to incredible business projects or informal lunch & learns, hosted by your colleagues. We have a fantastic culture where we really do care about our people and want everyone to succeed. Varied roles mean you’re not pigeonholed into one finite area but get the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills and experience

And to top it all off, not only do we offer unlimited holiday because we trust you to manage your workload and time but we also offer a share in our success whereby every colleague is eligible to join our profit pool bonus scheme – if Future hits their performance targets all colleagues may receive a bonus.

* Internal job family level E4.

The expected range for this role is £33,000 – £35,000.

This is a Hybrid role from our Bath Office, working three days from the office, two from home.

Who are we…We’re Future. We’re 3000+ colleagues over 250+ brands speaking to 400 million people every month across the globe through websites, events and magazines. We’ve got ambitious plans that build on our growth momentum and unlock new opportunities and we’re looking for talented people who want to be a part of it.
