This is a fantastic opportunity for a self-motivated candidate with some magazine editorial/sub-editing and research experience to support our editor in the production and management of our upcoming B2B printed publications.

This is a fast-evolving area of our business and whilst we are only looking to appoint for a short term position, there is a high possibility that this will turn into a full-time position.

Key duties:

  • Proofread and subedit print and digital products to high standards.
  • Solid organisation skills with the ability to work to a strict deadline and manage busy workload without supervision.
  • Good IT skills including MS Office, Photoshop, CMS and WordPress.
  • You will have a high level of accuracy and attention to detail in your work and be able to problem-solve.
  • Provide ongoing research as areas of coverage will be niche and specialist.
  • Liaising with advertising sales and editorial teams to ensure that deadlines are met.
  • Oversee the full production cycle including flat planning.
  • Source and prepare images and content and coordinate digital edition of magazines.
  • Liaising with our designer to ensure concepts are created on time and on brief
  • Being a technical resource for production queries
