Job description

If you're an inspirational copywriter with a passion for the outdoors, #FreeYourself from your current role and join us on our mission to get more people active outdoors.

We’re on a mission and your ability to produce top-notch copywriting complemented by inspiring imagery will be key to engaging our audience of 1 million visitors and 120,000+ newsletter subscribers.

Your primary responsibility will be to maintain comprehensive up-to-date listings of challenges, trips and other activities. You will also write features, social media posts and copy for advertising campaigns.

Given the breadth of activities on the website, there will be plenty of variety and no shortage of opportunities to push your creative skills to the limit. You will work within the Content Team and report to the Editor.

Requirements
You will have a deep understanding of the web and social media and ideally have at least 1 years experience of writing brilliant copy which has increased engagement and driven traffic. You'll be happy to showcase this during the interview process. In the interview process we’ll also need to see:

  • Excellent copywriting skills with an ability to sub-edit 5,000+ words per day;
  • An eye for selecting inspirational imagery to complement your copy;
  • Good understanding of SEO including search term research and metadata;
  • An ability to work quickly without compromising quality; and
  • A demonstrable understanding of our audience and passion for the outdoors.
Ideally you will have experience of the travel, charity, events or outdoors sector.

How you’ll be rewarded
As well as a feeling of satisfaction when people using the site achieve their goals, you’ll be rewarded with a competitive pay & benefits package which includes:
  • Basic salary of £18,000 - £24,000 a year
  • Bonus – profit-related quarterly bonus
  • Private health care - after one year
  • Pension - with an award-winning Defaqto 5 Star scheme
  • Childcare vouchers - opt to take vouchers in lieu of salary
  • 23 days holiday + public holidays - holiday increases with length of service
  • Free events - get the entry fee for your personal challenge or event paid for
  • Early finish Fridays - get the weekend started early with a 4pm finish
  • Quarterly off-site away days – combining work and play
You will be based at our fantastic rural office in the Yorkshire countryside just 5 mins away from the A1 near Boroughbridge - an easy commute from Leeds, York, Harrogate, Wetherby & Ripon. No city-centre tower blocks, no traffic queues, free on-site parking, plenty of fresh air and a shower for cyclists and runners!

Referrals
We will pay £500 to anyone who refers to us a candidate who becomes an employee. A first payment of £250 will be made on successful completion of the employee's probationary period (usually 3 months); the final payment of £250 will be made after 6 months of employment.
