Want to be part of the most dynamic media company in the UK? Are you looking to join a team where you can express yourself in an environment where change and growth are celebrated? If your answer is yes - then look no further.

At Dennis, we’re dedicated to creating brands that people want to work on and a culture that people want to work in and we want you to be part of the next success everyone’s talking about.

Overview of the team and role

We’re looking for an experienced Content Strategist to join our PPA award-winning Audience Development team. Your role will be to advise the editorial teams of sites such as autoexpress.co.uk, alphr.com, denofgeek.com and theweek.co.uk on content and social strategy. You’ll be a key member of the think tank behind our brands’ remarkable growth and will work alongside experts on content, SEO, social media, email, usability, web design and development.

What will you be doing?

  • Sit with and mentor editorial teams providing continuous feedback, recommendations and advice

  • Research new content areas using tools such as AdWords Keyword Planner, Buzzsumo and Newswhip Spike

  • Perform competitor analysis using tools such as Hitwise and SEMrush

  • Understand Dennis brands and their keyword battlegrounds

  • Train editorial on content strategy and SEO

  • Assess the performance of content, highlighting exceptional performers both good and bad

  • Work with campaign management to ensure delivery of advertising campaigns

  • Ensure sites are traffic-optimised.

  • Provide management reporting and clearly communicate strategy

  • Ensure brands use social media effectively

  • Provide research, content ideas and insights to help support advertising sales pitches

  • Forecast traffic to content

Who are we looking for?

  • We are looking for someone with extensive experience of working with editorial, ideally at a level where you regularly train, mentor and advise users with a range of abilities.

  • You should have excellent digital skills, and the ideal candidate will already be an advanced user of analytics, content management systems, keyword research tools and social media – though our team provides an excellent environment in which to enhance your knowledge. Confident spreadsheet users will be at an advantage.

Why Us?

  • We’re award winning. You will be working across award-winning brands and in award-winning teams and joining a culture where innovation and success are encouraged.

  • Our Commitment. We’re very proud to work for the benefit of The Heart of England Forest; an exciting and ambitious charity aiming to plant and preserve the largest native broadleaf forest in England. Founded by our late chairman, Felix Dennis, every employee gets the chance to plant a tree in their name so you can feel part of our vision.

  • We’re always thinking of you. You’ll have access to plenty of great benefits such as 28 days holiday, a contributory pension scheme and discounted gym membership. There are also yoga and boot camp classes to get involved in if the gym membership is not enough.

  • We recognise hard work. Have you always dreamed of taking time out of work to travel the world? You’ll be given the opportunity to take a 6 week paid sabbatical after five years service. And if you’re lucky enough to win our Employee of the Year Award you’ll be sent on a holiday of a lifetime to the island of Mustique in the Caribbean.

  • We know how to have fun. Whether it’s swatting up for one of our pub quizzes, creating a costume for our famous fancy dress parties or taking part in a fitness challenge as part of our annual charity day - we can guarantee you will share the enjoyment of life at Dennis.

Dennis does not discriminate. We’re just interested in your skills, your talent and your potential. So if you feel like this role is for you, please press apply now.
