    Opportunity to join Knife and Fork Media (CODE Hospitality, The Good Food Guide) in London as product manager, working across our four core digital subscriptions.

    ABOUT US

    Knife and Fork Media is a London-based hospitality media business that owns CODE Hospitality and The Good Food Guide.

    CODE Hospitality (CODE) is a digital membership platform for hospitality people in the UK. CODE members get up to 50% off in over 400 of the best restaurants, bars & hotels, along with additional perks, editorial and events. We have a network of more than 50,000 people working in and with hospitality. We endeavour to champion the industry in everything we do.

    The Good Food Guide (GFG) is a consumer-facing publication, founded in 1951. Every year the Guide reviews the best restaurants, pubs and cafés across Great Britain combining a network of reader feedback with anonymous expert inspections. We will be bringing back Guide in app format as part of a new digital subscription, The Good Food Club, in spring 2022.

    THE ROLE

    We are looking for an experienced product manager who will lead Knife and Fork Media’s digital growth plans. This is a new role, reporting directly into the COO. The product manager will be responsible for managing the day-to-day digital landscape at CODE and The Good Food Guide and will work closely with the leadership team to shape the future of the business.

    The CODE website is currently hosted on WordPress and serves as a content hub, subscription management platform and marketing tool for our B2C and B2B offerings. Through the CODE app (native app and bespoke Heroku CMS) members can access hundreds of industry-exclusive offers. In October 2021 we acquired The Good Food Guide. Alongside the existing website, we are in the process of developing a beta app through which members to The Good Food Club will access The Good Food Guide reviews. We currently work with three external agencies on the development, support and maintenance of the websites and apps. The product manager will lead, develop and evolve these relationships.

    Knife & Fork Media is committed to creating an equal and inclusive working environment. The role will be shaped around the successful candidate, and there is plenty of opportunity to learn on the job. We have outlined some desired responsibilities, skills, and experience. If you feel that you tick some (or all) of the boxes, we’d love to hear from you.
