Associate Editor - MUNDIAL

 

Location London, United Kingdom (Hybrid)

department CONTENT

Type full time

LEVEL MID-LEVEL


Have you read Mundial Mag once? Can you identify 90s Serie A kits from 100 yards and make people laugh, cry, and punch the air with your words? Are you a bit of an editorial polymath, happy writing short and long form, brimming with ideas for audio and video, and willing to strap in on social media? Do you want to work for a multi-award winning publisher and remind people every day why they love football? Of course you do.


What’s the role about?

Footballco is looking to hire an outstanding editorial obsessive to help take MUNDIAL to the next level in 2023 and beyond. The magazine has recently launched Club Mundial, a subscription service, and the goal is to reach more fans through editorial excellence across all platforms and mediums.

To do that, we need you. You will support the existing editorial team across the board but also be expected to help shape future output and take ownership of new content strands and ideas.

In print, audio, and social MUNDIAL has been awarded best in class in the UK and US, and the role is as much about the minute to minute and day to day output as it is the quarterly print magazine.

At Footballco we are building a modern media company that entertains & informs users with credible and original news, reporting, and content from our portfolio of consumer-facing football publishers. A company that services the fan’s desire for knowledge, a global publisher that can ensure the best content travels to fans everywhere.

This position is based in our London offices. We offer competitive compensation and a bonus scheme. We have a hybrid working model enabling you to flexibly manage your time working from our offices or from home.

What you'll do:
  • Grow MUNDIAL’s audience by creating best-in-class social and newsletter content

  • Pitch, commission and write long-form magazine features

  • Pitch and develop ideas for audio and video

  • Manage day-to-day output to drive awareness

  • Create content to assist marketing teams

  • Support digital growth

  • Manage freelancers, budgets and workflows


WHAT YOU HAVE
  • First, and foremost, you must be able to really write.

  • A knowledge and understanding of football at all levels - MUNDIAL treats the game democratically

  • An understanding of what matters to fans and how they want to consume it, including how football intersects with culture, fashion, music, and more.

  • Strong executional skills

  • A digital native, comfortable in using a variety of software and platforms

  • An eye for an image

  • Organisation and an eye for detail, with the drive to ensure constant improvement.

  • A desire to pitch in outside your comfort zone

You should include the following to apply:
  • Links to relevant content you wrote or edited that demonstrate what you could bring to the role

  • A few short paragraphs explaining why you'd be a great fit for this position

  • A CV
