Wanted: Web Producer with a passion for two wheels

Once upon a time I was the editor of motorcyclenews.com
The guys there are looking for some new members of the team and I'm happy to point you in their direction.

Here's the job ad:
"Got a passion for the internet? Love motorcycles? Want to develop your skills with the backing of a major UK publisher working on the UK’s biggest motorcycling website and the world’s biggest selling motorcycle weekly?

"We’re looking for a Web Producer to join the team producing www.motorcyclenews.com. You’ll get to write, edit and publish content viewed by the biggest audience in motorcycling as well as learning how to create, edit and produce multimedia content.

"You'll be bursting with new ideas to drive people to the website and ways to market the website throughout the internet, whether it’s on social networking sites, video sites, or an entirely new way to reach more motorcyclists.

"You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to the print edition, travel to bike launches and events in the UK and abroad, and even take your motorcycle licence and test the latest bikes.

"Writing or blogging skills are essential and previous experience in website production is preferable, as is a love of all things motorcycling .

"The position is based in Peterborough, UK.

"To apply, please email your CV and any examples of previous work to angus.farquhar@bauerconsumer.co.uk"


The rate of change is so rapid it's difficult for one person to keep up to speed. Let's pool our thoughts, share our reactions and, who knows, even reach some shared conclusions worth arriving at?
