Want to work at Dogs Today? Spread the word! Two vacancies!

Dogs Today has a vacancy for a talented editorial assistant.

Luke joined us in this position three years ago and has since worked his way through the ranks to Deputy Editor and is now leaving us to travel the world! While we are all delighted for him the hunt is on to find someone new to join the team.

You must obviously like dogs - we have three in the office for a start!
You'll need to be articulate and literate, you'll be proof reading and there'll be some opportunities to write and collate copy.
We'd like you to be able to multi-task - there'll be lots of admin as well as editorial duties - it's a small friendly office! And admin is just as valuable and important as editorial - you'll be looking after our subscribers who are our most important customers.
Be useful to be good with computers (we're on Macs) and hopefully you'll be interested in the Internet and social media as we're keen to do more and more.
My dream candidate will be methodical, organised, polite and helpful to readers phoning in, hard-working with a good sense of humour.
We are organising several high profile events this year, which should be exciting, but they'll also be hard work.

You'll need to be able to get to our office in leafy Chobham (Nr Woking). There's no chance of using public transport, so you'll need a car.

We will consider people looking for an internship very favourably. Please highlight this on your application.

Salary sadly will not be high - this is a rare entry level job that will give you broad magazine experience in an award-winning, friendly environment.

Please send me your CV and tell me why this job has your name on it.

If you really want to stand out write me 250 words on the King's Speech and whether or not you think it deserved all the Oscars it won. If you haven't seen it, write about the best film you have seen recently. I'd also like to know what your favourite three TV programmes are and why. And if you have ever shared your life with a dog - some more about that!

The magazine is on sale in WHSmiths, Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsburys, Pets at Home - please do go and have a look at a copy before applying if you are not familiar with the magazine! You can order one online, too.
Looking for someone to start ASAP so we can train you up before Luke packs his suitcase!

Very sorry to hear that Luke is leaving - he is so helpful and lovely to deal with in whatever capacity you contact him. I wish him well with his next venture and hope he will create a blog about his adventures. Wish I were younger (and fitter lol)as I would love to apply for this position. Good luck in your search for a replacement

So sorry that Luke is leaving, he has been such a help to me with Irish Retriever Rescue.

As with all your staff I have dealt with, Luke has always been so helpful. All the best to him.
Shame your office is so far away - would love it.
