Job Details

DescriptionDepartment SummaryAs the home of outdoor buying advice, Advnture is packed with buying guides to help our audience choose the best equipment to suit their needs, as well as how-to guides, first-person experience stories, and essential news stories for anyone who loves getting outside.

Our writers are all experts in the field, having clocked up many years braving the elements, whether up mountains or under canvas. When they say a hiking boot, backpack or tent are the best on the market, you can rest assured they know what they're talking about.

Job Summary & PurposeThis brand's editor needs to be someone who can see in-between the reader's needs. To be able to tell what they would like to read and do it better than anyone else on the web... taking in the right amount of knowledge to give authority in reviews without getting caught in pointless details. We need someone who can have a clear view of the whole outdoor activity industry and know what to recommend and when - tailoring advice depending on the time of year and what people will be looking for.

Key Role ResponsibilitiesThe ideal candidate will be tasked with growing the outdoor activity coverage on Advnture, delivering the best-in-class reviews, conducting interviews and writing features that help people understand how to use their next outdoor adventure purchase and which products they should buy, while maintaining the vast current suite of content we currently house.

The job will be split between discovering and delivering great new stories around the new channels on Advnture, and updating and enhancing the current crop of buying guides to ensure they are both relevant to the reader and easily found through social, SEO or direct traffic means.
