We are looking for a cycling enthusiast who is keen to make their way into online publishing. Our online cycling portfolio, comprising BIKEmagic and RoadCyclingUK, needs a bright and enthusiastic editorial and production assistant.

You will be responsible for helping develop all aspects of the site; from editing copy for adverts and managing databases to providing editorial copy for the site and helping to grow the community.
So, you will either have a qualification in journalism or media or be able to display a strong interest and aptitiude for the position. Above all, an enthusiasm for online publishing and an understanding of the cycling media will be a major advantage.
Required skills: HTML, Photoshop, excellent written English
Useful skills include: Animation shop or similar, Microsoft Office
