Job Description


Woman & Home is a leading lifestyle brand for UK women, who are aged between 45-60. With this role, you’ll be part of the best and brightest homes media team in the country.

We’re now looking for a Managing Editor, a super-organised editorial expert that can seamlessly blend the values and high standards of Woman & Home’s content with data-led decision making to meet and exceed goals.

What you’ll be doing…

As Managing Editor you’ll be responsible for editorial calendar and budget planning across the team, overseeing the update schedule and content pyramids, and working alongside the Deputy, Editor and Content Director to plan forward commissioning, all while improving process and content efficiency.

You’ll also be tasked with monitoring performance of critical terms and liaising with audience. To be successful in this role you’ll have the natural ability to problem solve, to pivot when necessary and to inspire others to embody the same always-on approach. Ultimately you are a digital native who can see the bigger picture while noticing the small yet important details and produce quality work. You should be self-motivated, results-oriented and able to thrive in a competitive and success-driven setting.

Experience that will put you ahead of the curve…

  • Passion for the homes and women’s lifestyle sector.
  • People and team management.
  • A strong contacts book, bursting with relevant industry contacts.
  • A passion for pushing yourself – driving forward editorial and innovation.
  • A positive and can-do attitude.
  • A great communicator – both with your team and the vertical, and the industry.

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 in to 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 – £40,000.

This is a Hybrid role from our London Paddington 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.
