Production Editor

6724

There are two positions to be filled.

In case of Production Editor, rather than submitting two pieces of writing I would like to see what you consider to be your best piece of design work (for example posters, artwork or other design projects), or, if you are new to this area of media, why you are interested in production and why you wish to be a part of the team.

The role will require you to work alongside the Editor in the production of the print version SCAN. Alongside the SCAN Editor, you will be responsible for planning and producing the design and layout of each issue.

The role will also require you to:

  • Assist the SCAN Editor in laying up the paper.
  • Liaise with section editors to ensure content is ready for publication deadlines.
  • Provide InDesign training as necessary, either using pre-existing materials or your own.

Applicants should either have some experience with Adobe InDesign (or a similar package) or be willing to learn how to use it. They should also be confident in voicing their opinions to and working in co-operation with the SCAN Editor in order to produce a publication that pleases both parties.

This is a senior role within the Editorial Committee and you will be expected to directly contribute towards the editorial policy of the paper.

However, this should not dissuade candidates with no previous experience in SCAN – I welcome applications from anyone with a desire to learn and contribute to the paper.
