Associate/Deputy Editor, New Electronics

The role requires a journalist with a minimum of 1-2 years’ experience (ideally in the Business-To-Business sector) and proven organisational skills. Candidates must be proficient in the use of InDesign. Interest in the engineering sector or a STEM background would be an advantage, but not essential. Salary and job title will be commensurate with ability and experience.

Main duties will include news and feature writing, sub-editing and liaising with clients on advertorial copy, but there is also likely to be some commissioning and international travel required in this role, which represents a unique opportunity to join a growing part of the Mark Allen Group at an exciting time.

We welcome applications from candidates of all backgrounds.
