Writer
Want to travel the world covering the biggest and best events in motorcycling? This is the job for you. We need a person who’s passionate about writing and
who's looking to step up to a national newspaper and major website.

You need to be passionate about motorcycling, have a keen eye for a news story and come busting with ideas to make MCN sell. If you currently run your own motorcycling-based website or blog, even better.

You’ll write for the newspaper and the website, making sure our award-winning team is always ahead of its rivals and delivering the best content possible for both online and print.

Web writer/producer
You’ll get to write, edit and publish stories on www.motorcyclenews.com. Your work will be viewed by the biggest audience in motorcycling and you’ll learn how to shoot, edit and produce videos and podcasts.

You'll also be bursting with new ideas to drive people to the website and ways to market the website through your vast knowledge of using social media. Previous experience isn’t essential but knowledge of basic video editing, writing, blogging and website production would be beneficial.

Senior web producer
Our website is regularly-approaching 1.5 million unique users a month and you’ll be responsible for helping the Editor steer the strategy and content for motorcycling’s premier website.

Working closely with all departments to ensure we continue to deliver the best motorcycling website in the world, you’ll be responsible for publishing and managing the content and community and steering MCN into the future.

Heavily experienced in the use of social media, blogging and technology you will be expected to deliver content and ideas that keep MCN on top.

This is a great opportunity to join one of Bauer Media’s biggest websites and work alongside one of the most experienced and respected editorial teams in the world.
