Heff Corp. is a new media company bringing together the best critics from the UK and beyond to build a family of brands delivering unique, specialist film and television coverage. Our brands currently include the 2 Minute Podcasts – launched in May 2020 – and the in development Film Awards Database, which aims to be the default destination for film awards insight.
The latest brand to be announced by Heff Corp. is a new review, feature and news hub covering the world of film and TV, and we are putting together an editorial team to join from day one. This is the perfect opportunity for those with some experience, looking to make a name for themselves and build something from the ground up.
The site will cover all of the biggest and newest released across film & TV, but also look to fill some of the gaps currently underserved by other sites including, for example, children’s TV, reality, documentaries and foreign language films. We want to be the place everyone thinks of because they know it’ll cover that thing nobody else does, and while there they can also check out the latest Netflix or Disney reviews.
Make no mistake, this is a venture with big dreams. As part of Heff Corp. it will be central to the group’s growth as a go-to destination for film and television coverage, and we want you to help us make it a big player. That means if you have tons of ambition, some previous writing and/or editorial experience and a huge interest in movies, you could be the perfect fit. We will all be unpaid at first, which is why a love of film is essential, but we also want to keep the good ones (like you) around for the long game, and that means working together to transform our interests into an income.
So if you’re up for a challenge then keep reading, because we’re after a number of key roles.
From news, reviews and features to interviews, video and audio, the Editor-in-Chief is responsible for all content on the site. It’s down to you to decide what’s needed, and ensure the highest standards are met. Ultimately, you get to steer the direction of the site and decide what needs to be covered.
If you have been running your own successful blog or review site, or you’ve been part of the editorial team of another site and want to take the next step, then this could be the perfect opportunity. You get to shape the editorial strategy from day one and make a lasting impression. A challenging role suited to a confident, opinionated and ambitious movie lover with a good eye for detail.
Social Media Editors
Helping to tell the world about us, our social media team will be responsible for managing all social channels and making sure the right stuff gets seen by the right people. If you love film & TV and you have an interest in social media, then this could be a great opportunity for you. A proven track record in building followers and engagement would be awesome, but is not essential; we just want someone passionate about sharing our content and engaging with our audience.
The role offers some valuable experience in social media management, and you should want to learn how to use analytics to understand our audience and shape the marketing strategy. This will be a great platform to hone your social skills with a lot of creative freedom.
So you already write for some great sites and publications and you don’t want to give that up – we totally get it. However, you could still be a valuable member of the team by writing reviews, covering news and events, or researching longer editorial pieces. We want to give you an outlet to broaden your portfolio and cover the things you may not have the scope to do elsewhere, so get in touch and tell us what you want to write about.
Contributors are the soul of the site, but we don’t care if you’re the best writer in the world or you’ve never written a review before. If you have an interest in film & TV, and particularly if you have a particular area of interest, we would love to hear from you. We guarantee you a platform where your work will be seen and appreciated, and one day we hope we can incentivise you to stick around!
So if you’re interested in joining a new team and being part of an exciting new site from day one, then email firstname.lastname@example.org now with a little bit about yourself, a link to any previous work or any questions you might have.
