Full Time

The Economist Group’s Thought Leadership division provides cutting-edge research and custom content that helps our blue-chip clients engage high-level business audiences and promote informed debate on a wide range of topics.

We are recruiting a senior editor to work within our Thought Leadership team in London. You will have powerful tools in your hands: drawing on both existing Economist Intelligence Unit content and on specially commissioned research to produce reports and editorial programmes to our high standards. You will work with our events and marketing teams to deliver this valuable content in print, in person at our events, and through a range of digital and social media channels.

You will be responsible for managing key client relationships, planning and delivering projects on a wide range of business subjects. Also, you will write and edit high quality business surveys, commission and edit white papers, and work on a range of other thought leadership projects.

You will have solid experience in an editorial or research position with an emphasis on business issues. With well-developed interpersonal skills, you will be keenly interested in business topics and have demonstrable experience in a research or editorial environment. An interest in digital publishing/social media would be an advantage, as would expertise in either the healthcare or energy sectors.

If you would like to work for a global leader, then please send your CV to or by post to Recruitment Office, 26 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4HQ.

Non-EEA applicants will need to obtain a UK work permit.

Closing date for applications is August 24th 2012.

The Economist Group values diversity. We are committed to equal opportunities and creating an inclusive environment for all our employees. We welcome applicants regardless of ethnic origin, gender, religious beliefs, disability, sexual orientation or age.
