We strive for transparency in remuneration. The salary for new Associate Engineering Managers at the Guardian is £65k.

We welcome applicants with diverse backgrounds, different lived experiences and different perspectives. A diverse team means we can better reflect and engage our global audience.

More about flexible working

We encourage flexible working to better balance the needs of the company and employees as their circumstances change over time, and in order to attract and retain a diverse team. No two situations are identical, so please discuss with us at or before any offer stage. In order to help applicants, here are some broad guidelines of the level of flexibility we are able to give for remote working.

If you are full time and wish to work at home, expect to be required to work in the office while you get up to speed, and then at least 60% time in the office after that in order to maintain a relationship with the wider team. In the long term it may be possible to go as low as 1 day a week.

We strive for transparency in remuneration. The salary for new Associate Engineering Managers at the Guardian is £65k.

We welcome applicants with diverse backgrounds, different lived experiences and different perspectives. A diverse team means we can better reflect and engage our global audience.

We believe in hiring the best people from the widest pool, and also in including them, fostering a culture where people’s voices can be heard and our employees look forward to coming to work.

Application instructions:

To apply for this position you must already have the right to work in the UK.

Please upload your CV and covering letter as one document. You should also highlight the extent to which your skills/experience meets the requirements of the role and your motivation behind applying.

Our interview process involves three stages: a phone interview, a pairing test and a face to face interview. We offer a remote pairing test, so you will not be required to join the office.

Deadline for receipt of applications is Tuesday 2nd March 2021.

We value and respect all differences in all people (seen and unseen) at the Guardian. We aspire to inclusive working experiences and an environment that reflects the audience we serve, where our people have equal access to career development opportunities, their voices are heard and can contribute to our future. The Guardian actively encourages applications from BAME candidates.

At The Guardian, many of our staff work flexibly and we will consider all requests for flexible working arrangements.
