In case of Head of Photography, rather than submitting two pieces of writing, please instead submit two photographs: one which you believe is of good quality and one which you would improve.
The role will require you to head a team of photographers, who will respond to assignments requested by the section editors.
The role will also require you to:
- Work closely with the SCAN Editor, Assistant Editor and Web Editor and keep them informed on the progress of your photographers.
- Liaise with section editors to ensure images they have requested are available and relevant.
- Provide section editors with a detailed list of photographers, highlighting specialists relevant to their sections.
- Search relevant sources on the internet for any additional photographs or images.
Applicants should be creative, enthusiastic and have excellent administrative skills. They should be able organise a team and ensure that team sticks to strict deadlines. An understanding of photojournalism is preferable. Photography experience is highly desirable.
Experience in SCAN is desirable but applications will be considered from applicants with other relevant experience. Candidates with no previous experience in SCAN should not be dissuaded from applying – I welcome applications from anyone with a desire to learn and contribute to the paper.
