We're Hiring! Are you our next design writer?

Do you know your Eames from your elbow and your arse from your Anglepoise? We're on the look out for a new design writer! There are so many amazing British designers to discover and we feel like we're only just scratching the surface. Whether it's an exciting new ceramicist, wonderful new wallpaper, or a brilliant accessories brand, we're looking for a new writer who can the best in new design with Domestic Sluttery readers.

It's not enough just to like pretty stuff (although good taste is definitely part of the job), you'll understand design trends and what makes British designers unique - we very rarely feature design outside of the UK, and Domestic Sluttery readers don't have thousands of pounds to spend on a chair, so we've got to be sure the designers we feature are affordable.

So what do you get for joining Team Sluttery? We pay per post (not exactly thousands, but the post rates are on the up) and you'll get to work on some very cool projects. You'll also get the chance to go on trips across Europe and the UK and sometimes you'll get ace stuff in the post (we've recently been to Italy, and we're heading to the Isle of Scilly very soon). We like sharing our treats. Even the gin.

What do we need from you? You must have blogging or writing experience. We don't care if it's on your own blog, or as a professional writer - we want something that shows you understand blogging and the back end of a CMS. You'll know how to make a feature look good, and take a decent photo when you need to. You'll need to be able to commit to one post a week, but you can write from anywhere in the UK. And you do need to live in the UK - we won't be budged on that.

Got all that? Then send us three ideas for designers you'd feature on Domestic Sluttery. We only need the idea outlines, don't write the entire posts. Email us at prettygirls@domesticsluttery.com telling us a little bit about yourself (we don't need a CV). Don't show us stuff we've written about already - we'll almost certainly delete your application if you do. If you've applied for previous roles, you can apply again - just let us know and update your application where you need to. You've got until 5pm on Sunday 23rd June to get in touch (nope, no late applications allowed). We're looking to get someone started as soon as possible, but we get a lot of applications and it's a team decision so do be patient while we go through them all!

Good luck everyone! We can't wait to hear from you.
