BBC Sky at Night Magazine is the UK’s leading astronomy magazine and website. Aimed at readers with an interest in stargazing, space science and spaceflight, it’s where amateur astronomers come to share in the wonder of space and their love of the night sky.
Every issue of BBC Sky at Night Magazine delivers inspirational, authoritative and accessible content. Our monthly Sky Guide is packed with the best targets to see in the night sky for all skill levels, from naked-eye stargazers to experienced astrophotographers. Yet knowledge makes nature more beautiful, and the magazine provides a deeper understanding of the processes behind the view we see, covering the latest developments in professional astronomy.
As well as sharing practical stargazing advice from amateur astronomers and photographers, each issue includes reviews of the latest telescopes and cameras for readers to get the most from their time under the stars.

Nice to have
We respect and value differences. We believe that when people from different backgrounds and with different perspectives work together, we can create the most value for our people, readers, customers, and society.

Flexible and hybrid working
We know we create great things and have fun when we come together in person and collaborate. We also know that working from home brings great benefits in terms of being able to focus on our work, and manage our personal lives around our roles. With this in mind, we have established a hybrid working pattern, with 60% of the working week spent in the office.
For this role, we can offer fully remote working, providing the Reviews Editor can be on-site once a month to record podcasts. Some time on-site will be required in the early stages of the role in order to get up to speed with the team and ways of working.
Our people also benefit from a flexi time policy, and a flexi location policy which gives everyone the opportunity to work from another location for two weeks during the year.
We are open to discussion about flexible working requests for any flexibility needs not covered by these policies.
Company benefits include

We have an ambitious and robust sustainability strategy, which includes a zero-to-waste, renewable-energy-fuelled office at Eagle House, the complete removal of single-use plastics from our supply chain, and a roadmap to be fully carbon neutral by 2030.
To put that spirit at the heart of our business, we recently co-created a set of values with input from everyone here. Our values are:
