The roles of fashion editor, beauty editor and a multimedia editor focusing on video content have been created to expand the magazine’s digital team ahead of the site’s relaunch on 6 September.
The website will “increase the premium feel” and enhance the user experience on desktop and mobile devices, said a spokesperson. The print edition has also been redesigned.
The investment is part of a plan to “significantly increase” Marie Claire’s scale, a spokesperson said.
Justine Southall, Time Inc. UK’s managing director for fashion and beauty, said: “Marie Claire is one of the most iconic media brands and with this investment we intend to double the website reach to more than 2 million unique users in the UK within 18 months.”
