Skyscanner is a leading global travel search site and app, a place where people are inspired to plan and book direct from millions of travel options at the best prices. We employ over 1000 staff across 11 offices globally, and, having reached market leader status, we were recently acquired by Chinese online travel company Ctrip in a deal valued at £1.4bn. While we remain operationally independent, our acquisition by Ctrip allows us to take the business to the next level of accelerated global growth. It’s a hugely exciting time for Skyscanner and the over 80m people who use us every month. We are unbiased and free, and our secret is in our unique proprietary technology that connects people directly to everything the travel industry has to offer.
We put our travellers at the heart of everything we do and nowhere does that matter more than in our copy. First and foremost, we're looking for a cracking writer to create compelling and emotionally engaging editorial content across our website and other channels. While you have a passion for SEO and current trends, your obsession lies in writing for people, rather than machines.
As you might have guessed, this role isn't about keyword stuffing or building artificial links. Instead, you'll write everything from on-brand, inspirational destination pages to trend-based news site articles. You'll lead the discovery of new topics and areas of editorial expertise for the company, as well as the optimisation of existing content.
Working alongside a team focused on increasing conversion and website traffic, you'll know be keen to understand the performance of your content. Working with our SEO specialists, you are interested in how we can turn data into valuable traveller insights that will provide strategic direction to our editorial.
Finally, as a guardian of our brand voice, your naturally warm and conversational tone is matched by your creative flair. You get under the skin of business objectives and deliver copy that is free of cliches and ranks well for search. Oh, and you come full of enthusiasm and brimming with fresh ideas our travellers will love.
Skyscanner can offer you large scale, complex problems where you can reach 80 million users whilst enjoying a high level of autonomy and influence and a flexible working environment where you can thrive.
