If you’ve always wanted to work for a women’s lifestyle title, this could be your chance to work for not one but two! Bauer Specialist has an opportunity to join the Top Santé and Mother&Baby teams as an editorial assistant. You’ll source competition prizes, compile readers letters and photos, post daily onto the Top Santé Facebook and Twitter pages, and carry out administrative tasks linked to both magazines.


We’re looking for someone who is extremely organised and can multi-task, with experience of working in a fast- paced office environment. Excellent computer skills (with PROACTIS experience a highly desirable bonus) plus outstanding communication skills by telephone and email are essential. The ideal candidate will also need the ability to maintain a cool head while juggling the varying needs of two busy editorial teams. Social media skills, knowledge and understanding of what makes engaging posts/newsletters/Tweets is highly desirable.

The majority of this role (at least 70%) is an administrative one. There is limited writing involved (giveaways, newsletters etc). However, once the successful candidate
is able to fulfil their duties to an outstanding level, meeting every deadline, there may be the opportunity to write more content for both magazines, but this will very much depend on the skill set and desire of the candidate.

Journalistic training and experience will also be favoured.
