*Update, 4/11/21: wer’re speeding up our search for a news writer, so if you think this job is for you don’t hesitate to get in touch!*
road.cc and our parent company F-at Digital is hiring again, and this time we’re looking to fill three more roles. If you’re a dynamic journalist/recent journalism graduate with a passion for cycling, an SEO specialist or you’re well-versed in the art of affiliate marketing, we want to hear from you.

Full details of all the jobs have been posted on LinkedIn where you can apply, but if you don’t have an account feel free to read on and email recruitment [at] f-at.co.uk with your CV and covering letter.
This is an exciting, fast-moving role in which you will split your working days between providing road.cc’s standalone news coverage and running our daily Live Blog, a busy micro-site within road.cc. The ideal candidate could be a news journalist already with a passion for cycling, or a talented writer looking for their first full-time job in news journalism, with a cycling twist. You could be reporting on Highway Code changes for your first story of the day and then a short while later, be writing about one of the biggest races on the pro cycling calendar; so it’s important that you’re comfortable working in a fast-paced environment.
Your days working on our live blog will be all of the above, but in bitesize chunks and with a slightly different tone of voice. This means our ideal candidate will have a great sense of humour, and will be adept at finding blog-worthy material from social media, news feeds or search. You’ll work with the news editor and editor to shape the day’s news agenda for the site, identifying what will drive the most engagement and traffic.
Familiarity with the culture of cycling is a must for this role. That doesn’t mean you need to know who came 45th in the 2006 Tour de France, but you just need to have that little label inside your head that reads ‘cyclist’.

Finally, we’re looking for an Affiliate Marketing Manager to analyse our current strategy and identify commercial opportunities for revenue growth. The successful candidate will need to be completely at home working in a data-driven digital commercial environment. They will also need to hit the ground running so a good commercial background is essential – if you don’t know your ROI from your ROAS please don’t apply!
Experience and qualifications
We are looking for a news writer sooner rather than later, and while we’re willing to wait for the right person for the SEO Manager and Affiliate Marketing Manager roles, we’re looking to compile our list of candidates soon. You can either head over to the ads on LinkedIn (linked above) to apply, or you can email recruitment [at] f-at.co.uk with your CV and covering letter, plus salary expectations.
We’re looking forward to hearing from suitable applicants for all three roles during an exciting time for our company. Best of luck to all those applying!

Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike – a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking – the latter being another long story.
