Work for Routes North

Since launching in late 2014, Routes North has grown to become the go-to resource for info on independent travel in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, attracting more than 100,000 unique users every month.

Our aim is to show readers that Scandinavia really can be affordable to visit, despite what you may have read elsewhere. With the number of tourists increasing every year and a worldwide fascination with Scandinavian culture, it’s a fun time to be working in the region.

Would you like to join our growing team? We’d love to hear from you! Get in touch by email or apply for one of the positions below.

Editor, remote

We’re looking for an experienced writer and editor to work for us on a freelance basis.

If you’re eagle-eyed, mad about all things Scandinavia, and keen to help us deliver entertaining and informative content on the region, we’d love to hear from you!

Working with a team of remote writers, you’ll be planning, writing and editing travel articles and event listings for publication on our website and on social media. This is a remote position with lots of flexibility and good scope to grow with our rapidly expanding website.

Essential:

• Good knowledge of Scandinavia (you have ideally lived or worked there)
• Extremely good written English
• Editing experience
• Confident uploading, editing and publishing content with WordPress
• Ability to work with others and give constructive feedback

Desirable:

• Basic HTML skills
• Basic image skills (eg sourcing and cropping images)
• Good understanding of SEO
• Enough Scandinavian language skills to help you write and edit accurately

Here’s what we’d expect of you each week:

– Write one blog post
– Edit one blog post
– Edit four events listings
– Schedule social media posts

And about once a month, you will need to:

– Write snippets of content for key landing pages
– Plan upcoming articles with our managing editor

In total, we expect these jobs to take you around 24 hours per month (approx one day a week, with flexibility about which hours you work). We’ll pay the right person a set fee of £360/month.
