Job Description

About Carwow Group

We’re Carwow Group. The car-changing experts for life-changing moments. Whether buying, selling, or (car) window shopping, we aim to give people total confidence in their choice.

We kicked off our journey as the ultimate matchmaker for car reviews, helping everyone pick their perfect ride. But we soon realised this wasn’t the destination - it was just the first leg. Why stop there when we could also help them get a great price?

So we decided we wanted to revolutionise selling cars, just like we did with buying them. That's when we introduced our game-changing 'sell my car' product.

Today, our dedicated team of over 350 experts across the UK, Germany, Spain and Portugal look after over 12 million active users (and an ‘excellent’ Trustpilot rating).

Following our acquisition of Autovia in February 2024, the leading automotive media brands AutoExpress, evo, Car Buyer, Driving Electric and Driver Power now call Carwow Group home.

And we’ve got plenty left in the tank.

Working here

So, what does Carwow Group look like under the hood?

We’re always driving forward, and our people love what they do and love working together. Our goal is to empower our employees to discover their passions, create common ground, and take control of their careers with confidence.

We regularly fine-tune our hiring process to ensure fairness and all Carwowers receive comprehensive DE&I training. Our Diversity Committees, led by our fantastic employees, fuel internal education, help out our local communities, and champion initiatives for our customers.

We’re also Flexa100 nominated and aim to be the go-to place for changing cars. We’re proud to say we’ve got an impressive employee average engagement score of 8.5/10!

Bonding as a team is important to us - whether we're rocking the Carwow Olympics worldwide, playing drag bingo for Pride Month, taking part in beach clean-ups or rallying on the Padel court, there’s always something to bring us together.

Fancy a life-changing career from the car-changing pros? We’d love you to join us on our journey.

Working with the brand’s senior editorial team, you will be integral in the delivery of the editorial content strategy to grow users of the site and build on its already successful traffic.

This is an opportunity to be integral to evo’s digital journey, develop a team of experts and grow the brand’s footprint across all digital touch points. As part of the wider Carwow Group you will have access to expert SEO and product development teams, the very best editorial experts and a Senior Leadership Team with unrivalled experience and passion for all things automotive.

What you’ll be doing

We are looking for an experienced digital content expert, with a wide knowledge of the performance, premium and luxury automotive sector and a clear understanding of the content that engages, informs, educates and entertains them.

Reporting to the Editor-in-Chief and working alongside the Deputy Editor and Group Web Editor, you will shape the editorial strategy to meet both the Carwow Group’s commercial requirements and evo’s audience growth targets.

You will take responsibility for leading the existing web team in the successful delivery of the content strategy across evo.co.uk and its associated social platforms, developing their skill sets to further grow the brand.

You will work with the wider senior editorial team to develop content that complements all brand platforms.. You will also be involved with the development of the brand’s content extensions including podcast, long form video and shorter social video content.

  • Proven understanding of the auto sector with robust industry contacts, impeccable writing and journalism skills

  • A confident negotiator - you’ll work with other teams in the business, particularly product development, to help ensure the site is as helpful as possible for our users
  • A self-starter - you’ll have the drive and determination not just to meet targets, but to smash them
