DC Thomson Media has an exciting opportunity for a Magazine Journalist to join the team of a fantastic new magazine project. This is a rare chance to join a brand at development stage and to contribute your own suggestions for a magazine packed with great reads.


You will be an exceptional features journalist with a passion for magazines. You’ll be bursting with enthusiasm and ideas and the know-how to turn those ideas into great reads.

You will feel equally at ease writing for print and digital platforms and your command of written English will be excellent. Your instinct for what appeals to mature women and what they love to read will be absolutely spot-on. Full driving licence required.

  • Generating ideas and researching features
  • Writing regular franchise features/your own stories – you will have a passion for writing
  • Sourcing images and working with picture researchers to find fantastic shots
  • Liaising with the design and production teams
  • Being aware of current media law and legislation
  • Maintaining an up-to-date knowledge of what mature, modern women want to read
