Rupert Collins-White, director, content and community, LSN
Why work for LSN?
The right people quickly progress and gain responsibility at LSN. We’re a small business and we all wear a lot of hats (which gets quite hot). This means that you’ll probably be asked to do other things, all the time, that lie outside the basic skill set above. There is a lot of scope for advancement at LSN for the right person.
We demand that people who work for LSN be self-starting, initiative-rich, “I’ll do that!” people. In return, there’s opportunity at LSN to take on bigger roles faster than you would at any large, lumbering media business. All it takes is brilliance, the ability to read people’s minds, some client-facing nous and the will and capability to do stuff really, really well.
LSN is a B2B online media, magazine publishing and conferences/events business based in Mortlake, SW14, focusing on the legal business services audience – that is, those employed by law firms/legal services companies not generally engaged in providing frontline legal services. Our audience is finance, HR, IT, marketing and BD, knowledge management, general management and operations and risk/compliance, facilities etc, and well as senior managing lawyers.
LSN operates a website, publishes two print/digital monthly B2B magazines, curates several social media groups/communities with thousands of members, publishes weekly email newsletters, operates conferences throughout the year, carries out research and produces reports and does much more besides.
