We The Unicorns is hiring for a Content Editor to start immediately, based at our Leicester Square HQ.
We The Unicorns gives readers inside access to all of their favourite YouTube stars, along with the latest news, videos, interviews and in-depth commentary on the creator community and issues that matter to them.
We’re looking for a talented creative who is just as comfortable writing a personality quiz about Dan and Phil’s bath bombs as they are writing in-depth commentary about accusations of PewDiePie’s racism. The ideal candidate will live and breathe digital content, with a solid understanding of how to drive traffic to a website via social media and SEO. They will be as analytical and strategic as they are creative – constantly responding to the changing digital landscape and making data-driven decisions.
This is a hugely rewarding job with lots of potential to make the role your own and grow within an established media & entertainment company.
