Network N is looking for an Editor for a new gaming website. This is the company’s first launch since PCGamesN started back in 2012, and we’re after someone brilliant to head up this new brand.

We want someone who’s going to be able to shape the tone and output of the site, and lead its growth – all the way from pre-launch to establishing it as an authoritative and respected voice in the gaming space.

As Editor you’ll be in charge of a small in-house team (plus a freelance budget), and will be responsible for content creation and planning, commissioning, managing, and all other elements of the site’s day-to-day running.

This new brand is focused on the stories that surround games and the people who play them. Think streamers, esports, celebrity gaming culture and the like, all with a focus on original reporting.

The right person for the job will have extensive experience of working in a senior position for an online gaming or entertainment brand. You’ll be passionate about videogames and gaming culture, have good knowledge of the streaming and esports spaces, and well-established industry contacts. You’ll also have the drive and skills to get a new website off the ground in a competitive industry.

Responsibilities include:

  • Content planning and creation
  • Conducting and commissioning original reporting
  • Managing an in-house editorial team plus a pool of freelancers
  • Helping to develop and deliver on the editorial strategy for the brand
  • Identifying and implementing growth strategies for the website
  • Developing relationships with the gaming communities being covered
  • Ensuring all output meets Network N’s high editorial standards, and is delivered on-time and on-budget
  • Attendance at events, trade shows, etc.

Required skills and experience:

  • Previous experience in a senior role on a gaming or entertainment website
  • Experience managing staff members
  • Exceptional knowledge of the gaming industry, including esports and streaming culture
  • Ability to identify and capitalize on emerging trends
  • Excellent writing and copy editing skills
  • Proactivity and a strong work ethic
  • SEO knowledge
