Production editor for Practical Sportsbikes magazine
Britain’s newest and fastest-growing motorbike magazine, Practical Sportsbikes, needs a brilliant production editor who knows their TDRs from their TZRs.
We’re looking for an experienced production editor who is: organisation personified; able to oversee and manage copy flow between journalists and designers with their eyes closed; can hunt down spelling mistakes, typos and poor grammar like their life depends on it; and who can, with the editor, ensure deadlines are always met.
Writing award-winning standfirsts and captions will be second nature, as will crafting a good story into a brilliant one. An in-depth working knowledge of InDesign CS5 is essential, as are great communication skills and the ability to thrive within a strong team. A knowledge of and interest in ’70s, ’80s and ’90s sportsbikes would be desirable, but an understanding of what makes a typical reader tick is essential.
Experience of flatplanning and production systems, as well as the ability to effectively liaise with other internal and external departments is a must. The successful candidate will also be required to work over the various motorcycle monthlies – Bike, Ride, Performance Bikes and Classic Bike – delivering pages that meet the demanding requirements of the head of publishing and individual editors.
To apply, please email a covering letter and CV to: Mark Hamilton at email@example.com
Closing date: 30 June
