Job Description

Are you obsessed with online shopping? That’s one of the key criteria for this new position at SPH Media.

Content Lab – the content marketing unit of SPH Media – is looking for an Affiliate Marketing Assistant Editor to join its growing team. You’ll be responsible for creating always-on shopping content with preferred external merchant partners. This content will be published across our portfolio of lifestyle titles, including Her World, The Singapore Women’s Weekly, Hardwarezone, Home & Decor, and more.

In this role you’ll work with a wide variety of merchants across the home, tech, fitness, health, entertainment and family categories. You should be performance-focused, skilled at making data-driven decisions and seeking out new opportunities based on content trends. This position will report to the Affiliate Marketing Associate Director.

Experience in content creation / lifestyle editorial is mandatory. You must know what the audience wants – and how best to create it.

Responsibilities include:

  • Pitch, write and edit 4 to 5 original shopping-focused pieces of content weekly
  • Craft effective social media copy
  • Managing freelancers to create content that is on-brief and timely
  • Develop content strategies to achieve reach and CTR goals
  • Track performance of content to inform and execute new areas of growth to increase affiliate marketing revenue
  • Stay on top of the latest deals and work with our preferred retailers to plan for sale events and upcoming launches
  • Use SEO tools and industry knowledge to help strategise next step
  • Collaborate with internal and external stakeholders to respond to insights and opportunities
  • Ensure content fits each SPH Media platform’s voice and style
  • Comply with media law and ethical guidelines


  • Minimum 3 years of experience creating lifestyle content at a digital-first outlet – strong preference for candidates with a background in consumer-focused content
  • A sharp writer with strong editing skills. Well-versed in explaining complex topics in simple terms. You must know what makes content work
  • Able to understand analytics and translate them into editorial action — familiarity with Google Analytics, Skimlinks, or similar reporting tools is a plus
  • Proven track record of meeting performance targets in the digital content space
  • Detail-oriented and a gift for multitasking to meet the demands of always-on content creation and aggressive deadlines
  • Experience with content management systems such as Wordpress and Drupal, a plus
  • Excellent command of the English language, written and verbal
  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience
  • Must play well with others
