Brand overview

HR is one Mark Allen Group’s flagship B2B media brands. Its success derives from it producing the most innovative, thought-provoking and creative content for HR leaders who want to develop high-performing organisations. Its vision is to be the clear, strong voice of the HR community, sharing best practice and demonstrating the value HR adds to business.

Role summary

Knowledge of the HR industry is not essential, but a desire to learn about this dynamic sector is. However, the key element of the role is, unsurprisingly, writing news. It will be your responsibility to generate off-diary news stories, create an impressive contact base in the industry and, ultimately, manage a number of magazine and website sections.

You'll need the confidence and versatility to interview senior HR directors from global giants and industry experts. You'll also need plenty of energy and an insatiable appetite to delve into issues impacting the sector, ranging from the rise of performance-enhancing smart drugs, race in the workplace, gender pay gap reporting and sexual harassment and bullying.

This role represents an ideal opportunity for an ambitious journalist looking to advance their career on a well-established and market-leading B2B magazine.


Candidate profile

We’re looking for someone with at least two years B2B news writing experience, who can turn their hand to news, analysis and feature writing with equal aplomb and who is prepared to establish a reputation as someone in the know. As part of the role you will also be expected to generate ideas for in-depth articles on a regular basis.
