Danish Content Editor – London at Secret Escapes in London, United Kingdom

We’re searching for an amazing content editor, a native Danish speaker and fluent in English, to help us venture further into the Danish market with great success. Not such a big ask, right? You will be based in our brand new head office in Holborn, London.

Being part of an amazing and expanding team of Nordic ninjas, this person will help produce our Danish language content - be it hotel copy, social media content or apps translation, marketing and email copy and overall tone of voice for this particular territory.

Are you an experienced wordsmith with a passion for travel, an eye for detail, an issue with poor grammar and a great sense of humour (without breaking the unwritten codes of taste and decency)? Tick those boxes and we’re interested.

​Things you should know

The editorial team is small and agile (like a SWAT team) - one minute you’re writing copy for a five-star hotel in New York, the next minute you’re talking to a customer on Facebook about hotels that may (or may not) be dog-friendly. We all pitch in, we’re all in love with our product and we’re all excited about a newbie joining our ranks.

Things you’ll be working on

  • Manage elements of the uploading, editing and image selection process in our CMS for each hotel or holiday selected for the site
  • Manage our freelancers’ workload and ensure on-brand copy in accordance with our style guide
  • Sub-editing copy written by freelancers
  • Liaising with freelancers and the rest of the Nordic team to ensure sales are on time and on brand
  • Merchandising each offer to ensure the copy and the images sell
  • Creating on-brand posts for our various social media channels and compiling monthly reports on all activities in accordance with our Nordic strategy
  • Researching and writing sales for our Danish site

Working at Secret Escapes

Secret Escapes is the UK’s biggest members-only website that runs best-in-market flash sales of four and five star hotels and holidays worldwide. We offer our members exclusive rates of up to 70% off.

We're looking for grafters and self-starters to join the gang, who can keep up with the pace and want to make a difference. We still work in relatively small teams, so there's no room for coasting along. We're friendly, happy, and most importantly, we work hard. We're not afraid to get our hands dirty and we're all madly passionate about our brand.

Applying

Given the volume of applications we receive, we’d like people to go the extra mile with this one. So, along with sending us your CV and covering letter, we’d like you to describe our in house style in 300 words or less - imagine you were talking to someone else about our brand and tone of voice (ToV).

Requirements

  • Attention to detail, accuracy and speed
  • Self-motivated, enthusiastic, ‘can do’ work ethic
  • Organised, thorough and methodical approach to work
  • Outstanding grammar skills
  • A good relationship with short deadlines
  • Great research skills
  • Understanding of SEO
  • Basic HTML
  • Personal attributes:
  • Personable, good communicator
  • Sense of humour (you’ll need it)

Your characteristics

This is a great opportunity for someone keen to make their mark and help a fast growing business excel in a relatively new market. You grow with responsibility, you always meet your deadlines, and you’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves and carry your part of a heavy workload. We always have fun, but our first priority is to get the work done. You will want to take your next step in the world of copywriting and editorial and you are enthusiastic about learning to craft great copy. You share our passion for travel and you want to work for an exciting and ambitious digital business, where the sky's the limit.

Your experience

Previous writing or web copywriting experience (in Danish, please) is essential - we have quick turn-around times and we need speedy, accurate copy. Travel copywriting experience, or experience in the editorial team of a flash sales company would be dreamy.
