Operations editor for TechRadar (from October 2008 to December 2012):
 
TechRadar
The largest UK-based consumer technology news and reviews site (and now rapidly growing in the US and Australia).


Techradar.com is the UK’s biggest technology review site (as of September 2012, TechRadar was being read by more than 17 million unique users, with over 4 million of those from the UK) and I oversaw the site’s workflow for separate teams in Bath, London, Australia and the US.

I was responsible for the day-to-day running of TechRadar, ensuring news, features and reviews were delivered on time, to a high editorial standard and to the volume agreed to a strict content strategy. I policed the content to ensure it followed TechRadar’s style, implementing and reinforcing our SEO strategy (including finding and monitoring keywords, in-linking, tipping and using social networks to build our community) and constantly updated our online style guide with CMS tutorials and best practice documents.

I oversaw the production and art budget, commissioning freelance staff to provide the cover the editorial teams needed on a weekly basis, balancing costs with demand to ensure we did not overspend. I also compiled and sent the weekly newsletter.
