A rare opportunity for a talented and enthusiastic editor to join UKI's automotive media division.

The successful candidate will be a key member of a growing team, editing two leading automotive and motorsport tech titles: Engine Technology International and Professional Motorsport World.

UKI are looking for someone who’s already experienced in editing magazines, or a deputy editor who’s ready for the next step up.

The successful candidate will have experience in getting high-quality magazines to press on time and budget, starting from the early content-planning stages right through to signing off final pages.
