  • You will be in charge of coordinating the publishing and delivery of localised content on Huel multiple websites, leveraging third-party apps and looking at improving our website localisation tech stack including API, connectors, etc.
  • Specifically, you’ll focus on establishing differentiation between translation, transcreation and copywriting for website copy, paid social ads, CRM comms, etc. creating clear guidelines for each requirement.
  • You’ll be responsible for a refreshing, updating and maintaining our style guides, international tone of voice, terminology and glossaries working with the central Marketing team and our in-house language resources.
