PC Pro, the UK’s biggest IT brand, is looking for a freelance news and features writer. The successful candidate will be expected to work on both the magazine and PC Pro’s recently redesigned website. Applicants should have an interest in technology, but above all demonstrate excellent writing skills and a keen eye for a news story.
Though primarily a writing role, there will also be opportunities for recording video and audio.
Based at Dennis Publishing’s central London offices, the candidate may also be required to represent the magazine at international events.
This is a full-time, freelance position at a rate of approximately £1,400 to £1,800 per month dependent on experience.
The Dennis difference
Our office is slap bang in the heart of the West End – just a stone’s throw away from Charlotte Street and its many bars and restaurants, five minutes from Oxford Street and Soho and right in the hub of London’s media land. In our most recent staff survey 91% of employees said they enjoyed working at Dennis and would recommend it to friends.
How to apply
Don’t worry about your CV (yet). Before we shortlist applicants, we want to know how well you write and why you think you’re right for the job. So, email a 300-word technology news story based on that day’s events to Barry Collins. Plus, send through one feature idea, either for the website or the magazine, along with a covering letter explaining what makes you perfect for PC Pro. Shortlisted applicants will be asked for a CV.
Send your news story, idea and covering letter no later than 4 June 2010. Interviews will take place in June, at the Dennis Publishing offices.
