Creative food-fanatic with strong writing skills, commercial awareness and a passion for digital content required to join the team in Vauxhall.
Do you have a passion for food? Are you a natural writer? If the answer is yes, then get in touch!
The company is the online retail destination for quality produce and hard-to-find ingredients - a haven for the daring and curious cook. They have scoured the globe for rare and exquisite gems, ranging from the finest British seasonal fare to the most sought after luxury delicacies.
They shout from the rooftops about their great produce through their writing, photography, recipes, newsletters and our blog and we are seeking a food-loving, commercially aware, wordsmith to join their small, but lively team. Your main responsibilities will be taking charge of the website's content: writing product descriptions, managing categories and helping to generate engaging content for the website, blog, and social media.
The key focus to the role is researching and writing product descriptions, working closely with the managerial team to keep all the new and exciting products coming in and going up on the website.
They're looking for someone who loves to cook and knows their wagyu from their salsify - or knows how to find out quickly, if not! A flair for photography and an understanding of marketing content strategy would be great, too. This role holds a lot of responsibility with scope for the right candidate to progress within a small company, so demonstrate thorough organisation, creativity and a willingness to learn and that could be you!
