PCGamesN is looking for a full-time, in-house Guides Writer to join its editorial team.

You’ll have a keen interest in all things to do with PC gaming, a voracious appetite for playing as many games as possible, and a sharp eye for detail. You’ll be able to hand in exceptional copy to tight deadlines, write about complex mechanics and gameplay in a clear and approachable manner, and be confident in pitching your own ideas for articles.

You’ll have a good understanding of SEO best practice, and be able to turn your hand to various styles of writing – including guides, features, patch posts, news, reviews, scripts, and more. You will also have at least some experience working in a busy office environment, and – most importantly of all – agree with our position on using Oxford commas. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a friendly, dynamic, and dedicated media team based in Bath.
