History Hit

Main Duties

HistoryHit.com is looking for an editor for a 3-month contract to write and edit the website. We are a startup with a friendly team based in London Bridge. We are redeveloping the main historyhit.com website to continue to build on a very successful 2019. The editor will manage editing from external contributors, write content according to the editorial calendar and manage social media channels.

Skills and Experience

Excellent written English is a must. An interest in and preferably a good understanding of history. A degree in a humanities subject (particularly History or Politics) is desired, although we are open to different backgrounds.

Must have professional editorial experience (I'm afraid writing your own blog does not qualify you for this).

Good knowledge of social media platforms and experience using them in a marketing or publishing context.

Adobe Photoshop skills

You will need your own computer for remote working for the duration of the contract.
