Become A Writer For Canadian Gearhead

Canadian Gearhead needs help! We have multiple positions available for freelancers who want to get involved with the brand:

This person will oversee a group of content writers. They’ll be responsible for creating article briefs that include an explanation and the overall goal of an article. They’ll also be in charge of coming up with the subheadings in the article – this requires researching questions the reader might have when searching for info on the topic. Coming up with an attention-grabbing title will also be part of their job.

The Content Manager will communicate directly with the writers in order to send article topics out to them and guide them on how to approach them. This position will only be offered as a promotion to Canadian Gearhead writers.

Content Editor

The Content Editor will be in charge of making sure an article is ready to be published. They’ll check for any spelling/grammar mistakes, add images, affiliate links, embed videos, and internally link to other articles.
