Not bad, but 7 years was enough
Various roles (Former Employee) –  London18 November 2016
Worked here for 7 years. It was a frustrating time in my life where marketing teams are set hard targets that puts them in direct conflict with the targets of departments like mine.

There are perks such as the location and the health insurance.

Fast Paced
Commercial Project Manager (Former Employee) –  London Bridge7 January 2016
News UK is a place of great dept and variety. I learnt a lot from working across all varied titles, from the The Sun to The Sunday Times magazine.

Working on these meant that I was able to connect with some great name brands and was able to deliver content to larger and very different demographics.

The most challenging part of the job was the internal liaising. This brought up problems due to commercial and editorial conflict. Even though this was the most difficult part it was the part that I would eventually enjoy the most. As producing a campaign that both the brand/agency and our papers were happy with was most rewarding.

At times News UK Commercial department could have more structure allowing for more growth and development of their individuals. But with the fast paced environment that can be very difficult.

my time at news has been a good experience, from how much I've learnt and what great people i have met on the way but its time for me to move on and work closer to home because i don't have much of a life with family and friends. my day to day roles consists of cooking the days food and also prepping for the next day but the work load was so much cooking for like 3500 people a day and its time for me to take a less stressful job.

Stressful, demanding, fulfilling, exhausting
Production Manager (Current Employee) –  London, ENG23 July 2014
There is no typical day on the sport section of a national newspaper. My Fridays are about 13 or 14 hours; my Saturdays between 16 and 19 hours. I learn every day that the standards I set myself are impossibly high, that everybody makes mistakes, that journalism should and can be fun. My colleagues are professional, creative and painstaking. The hardest part of the job is accepting that to err is human. The most enjoyable part of the job is polishing a page until it shines like a diamond.
Pros
A two-day week
Cons
Never enough time or resources to complete tasks perfectly

Sales Support (Former Employee) –  London30 April 2014
Working at News UK was a very pressured job and working to deadlines on a daily basis was what made me love my role as a Sales Support Content Chaser. Each day I would have to close an Edition of The Times and The Sun Newspaper which meant chasing all colour, Mono and Digital advertising prior to the offstone deadline. I was always on call for editorial and production if queries did arise. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the end result and working under pressure is what makes me thrive.
