The Joy of Business is a small virtual team, so you may be in Brighton where the founder Julia Chanteray is based, or anywhere in the world.

We’re committed to flexible working with a strong ethos of learning and development. You can arrange the hours you work to be balanced with the rest of your life, including working reduced hours during term time if required.

This position will start in June 2019.

- A very high standard of literacy and tonnes of visual and written creativity
- A brilliant editor, who can take my copy for editing and improve it
- Knowledgeable about content marketing strategy
- Interested in small business
- Wants to be involved with a progressive company with clear ethics and values
- Comfortable and proficient with using online/cloud-based software and able to learn new skills quickly

- Able to manage your own workload, and prioritise tasks

Practical details

Office hours are 10-6, Monday to Friday, UK time. The hours of work will be 18.5 hours per week, and these can be worked as flexibly as you wish. If you’re Brighton based, you may be working part of the time from Platform 9 in Hove, or you may be entirely virtual, checking in with me and the team by Zoom and email.

You have the option of applying for this as a salaried role, paid through a UK company, where you need to be eligible to work in the UK/EU, or you can apply for this role as a self-employed contractor, so you’ll need to be actually self-employed with other clients.
