Other important roles include representing the publications at events, to raise their profile and build relationships, and supporting the Magazine Group Editor. The News Writer will have an ‘eye’ for a good story, well-developed capability for interviews, and the confidence to set briefs and ask for rewrites.
You should have a proven ability to write incisive, well-structured news and news features within a print magazine and online communications environment. A confident face-to-face and telephone interview manner, strong editorial skills and the ability to sense a good story. It’s essential that you are comfortable working with scientific or technical content.
