Employer Bauer Media

Location Peterborough

Bauer’s motorcycle monthlies hub needs an experienced production editor to work across multiple titles.

The hub is a lively, friendly team producing six market-leading magazine brands – Bike, RiDE, Performance Bikes, Practical Sportsbikes, Classic Bike and Built. The successful candidate will take charge of the production side of RiDE and one other title (TBC).

The successful candidate will be an experienced editorial-production professional who is brilliantly organised and can spot a typo a mile off. Working closely with designers, editors, print teams and ad teams, you will play a unique role in delivering a great magazine every month.

Setting deadlines and managing efficient copy flow will be second nature. You’ll have the magazine craft to edit and polish the work of some of Bauer’s brightest writers and designers – and the organisational skills to do all this on time, every month.

The right person for this role will be a production editor with at least three years’ magazine experience. They must have a sound working knowledge of Microsoft Word and a solid grounding in Adobe InDesign.

  • An interest in and knowledge of motorcycling is not essential but would certainly be useful.
  • Ninja copy-editing and proofreading skills are essentials for this role.
  • An ability to adapt, evolve and change plans on days when unforeseen problems occur is essential.
  • Good interpersonal skills are highly valuable, for working with different teams and writers.
