About the role
TLG is looking for a Content Manager who will manage and order articles from our rolodex of freelance writers, and ensure they produce the articles in accordance with the quality and guidelines set by our internal outreach team, and the editors they are conversing with.

- Your job will be to then get the full details on what's required by the outreachers, communicate what is needed (usually via email), with the freelance writers we use, and ensure the articles are produced to a high standard, in a timely manner.
- If any minor editing or tweaks are needed, you will manage this process before passing it onto the outreachers for them to send to their contact. Major issues from the writers end, will require you to submit feedback, and ask them for revisions.
