A key objective of this role will be to generate synergies between the various Portland Press and Society offerings, and raise the profile of our brands and values online. Revenue generation via monetization of published content-collections and/or themed issues, as well as exploring possible revenue generation potential from commercial advertising against published content and/or the Society website are also central to the role.
