Complementing our up-to-the-minute reporting, our enduring content initiative endeavors to address pivotal inquiries about rail travel, providing passengers with insights for seamless journeys and commemorating significant milestones in railway history.

Established in 2020, Rail Traveller swiftly gained momentum as passengers seek our platform for reliable information. Our extensive social media footprint enhances our influence, cementing our position as a go-to authority in the railway sphere. But this is just the beginning; We’re on the expansion path in 2024, with an upcoming iPhone & Android App, train tracker and more and we’re on the lookout for passionate individuals to join our team.

About the Role

We’re actively seeking a Content Manager to join the Rail Traveller team on a voluntary/internship basis initially. You’ll be working with a small close-knit team of railway enthusiasts, with extensive industry and technical knowledge to deliver the Rail Traveller vision.

As Content Manager you will be tasked with:

  • Discovering trending stories, breaking news, press releases and UK railway events (through National Rail data supplied to Rail Traveller);
  • Prioritise and schedule stories according to Rail Traveller’s publishing calendar;
  • Format headlines, SEO and content imagery to optimise digital reach;
  • Manage a team of writers/contributors submitting to Rail Traveller each week, chasing deadlines as required;
  • Supporting the vision and mission of Rail Traveller.

About You – the ideal Content Manager

We’re after passion, commitment and knowledge of the railway industry. Past experience in Editorial/Content roles is desirable, but not essential. We will provide all the required training, support and tools you need to succeed, working alongside an experienced team.

Ideally you will:

  • Have a passion for the rail industry – tell us your favorite traction, route or era on the railway!
  • Excellent written communication skills, and a strong grasp of the English language
  • Familiarity with core content principles such as journalistic style, SEO and content marketing
  • A passion to develop and grow
  • 2-3hrs per week to dedicate to the Rail Traveller project

Please note this position is voluntary at this moment in time but we are open to discussing equity/compensation split as Rail Traveller grows. The Content Manager position will be a key role in the future of RT.
