Experience Level: Intermediate
A groundbreaking new online resource for the editorial industry seeks a PR and marketing figure to drive forward the outward promotion of the site.

The business is innovative and unrivalled in the marketplace, in short offering publishable interview content with celebrities, forthright names and academics across 15 different sectors. The concept exists by providing a link between magazine, newspaper and website editors... and journalists/PRs/agents who have secure links to available interview names.

We are not a content syndication business, more a broker between those with contacts and those looking to seek out prime, exclusive, original and bespoke interview content.

The business is run by two successful media entrepreneurs and comes with initial stages of support from one of the stars of the BBC's "Dragon's Den" series. We are also in extensive discussions with one of the UK's biggest magazine publishers about a tie-in deal that would escalate the business's growth as well as potentially securing early steps into overseas markets.

We have already been profiled in The Guardian, but are looking for someone to drive extended coverage whilst putting into place social and business networking hooks both online and elsewhere.

Despite the site's potential, we are working off a limited cost base, and are looking for an ambitious, confident and ideas-driven person to help us develop a greater presence in the editorial market. With that in mind, we are offering a nominal negotiated initial fee plus 10% profit-share on all business transacted plus negotiated share options further down the line (so that, in effect, and if all is going well, you will own a small slice of the company). This will be subject to agreed PR and promotional angles being undertaken " the employee's expertise visibly coming to the fore in opening up new options for what has the potential to be a thriving business, and one that has already been described by independent industry experts as \"beautifully placed and well overdue\".

Our logged projections for turnover in first year are in excess of £500,000, so this is a genuine opportunity to join something potentially hugely prosperous from the start.

The position is to be worked from home. If you are interested, please state past experience, and what you feel you can bring to our online presence. The site went live at the end of August and has already been seen by over 5,000 editors and journalists.

Thank you. Please feel free to ask any questions.
