Network N’s hiring! Wargamer is relaunching and looking for an editor and staff writer

Network N is relaunching Wargamer, and on the lookout for a talented editor and staff writer

Good news, war games fans – the parent company of your favourite gaming sites, PCGamesN, The Loadout, and Pocket Tactics, is relaunching Wargamer. A site dedicated to, and positively fanatical about, all things war gaming, the site initially launched way back in 1995 – and Network N’s bringing it back. Network N will need some talented folk to helm Wargamer’s relaunch and beyond, which means the company’s got two new positions available.

First up, Network N’s looking for an Editor to oversee Wargamer’s relaunch and operation going forward. The revitalised site won’t only build on what came before but expand on it, meaning its remit will reach across the world of digital war games, tabletop, miniatures, board games, collectibles, and so on. So, you’ll need you to dig D&D as much as you heart Hearts of Iron.

The Wargamer editor’s responsibilities include content creation, content planning, managing its in-house team, and helping to develop and deliver on its brand’s strategy. Plus, you’ll need to spot and implement opportunities for the site’s growth, attend relevant events (you know, when those things are back on, sigh), and make sure its content hits Network N’s high standards, is delivered on-time, and on-budget.

You’ll have previous experience in a senior role on a gaming or entertainment website as well as in managing staff, be in-the-know about SEO, have a knack for spotting and capitalising on emerging trends, and boast excellent writing and copy editing skills. You’ll also be proactive, have a strong work ethic, and a whole lotta passion and knowledge for all those things listed above. If this sounds like you, Network N would love to hear from you.
