Exciting vibrant company but terribly managed
Events Assistant (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London16 March 2018
I worked at News on the events Floor for 2 years. I met lots of celebrities and politicians (some good, some bad) worked extremely long hours on events but loved every minute of it. I got pregnant AND EVERYTHING CHANGED...
Suddenly i was pushed into a new role on the ground floor reception and treated terribly by the News UK facilities director and her close team. She had a terrible reputation and i found it all to be true. Was a real shame as apart from her the role is great.
Pros
exciting, fast moving
Cons
The senior staff

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.
