Full Time

CAR, the world’s best premium motoring magazine and rapidly growing digital brand, is seeking a Managing Editor.

This is a senior role for an experienced sub-editor or section editor, who obsesses about achieving perfection in each headline, ensures every caption makes you smile or think, and strives to maintain CAR’s literary reputation with insightful, entertaining writing.   

The Managing Editor will lead the on-page production process, and also help create CAR’s interactive app. You must also be an accurate proofreader, spotting errors in print and online. But there’s more to the role than this.

The Managing Editor is a critical cog in the commissioning process, managing staff and freelancers to ensure smooth copy flow, and liaising with other stakeholders such as advertising and marketing.

You’ll be an ideas generator, helping us shape feature treatments, videos, and dreaming up boxout concepts. You’ll also write a small amount of content too, most likely entertaining reviews of cars for print and online.

A full driving licence and journalistic experience are essential. If you have a passion for cars, and want to create fine magazines in a company that still values print as much as digital, this is your dream job.

The position is based at Bauer Media in Peterborough.

Please upload your CV, and your five-point plan for developing CAR’s tone (covering both print and online), by completing the application form below.
