Assistant Editor - Firefighting Group
So you want to be a magazine editor? This could be your lucky break. Annex Business Media is looking for an assistant editor in its successful firefighting group. If you live to write, understand Canada’s political system from the national to municipal level, have a passion for turning average writing into Shakespeare (but leave your iambic pentameter at home), and want to learn the ropes from among the industry’s best, then stop reading and start applying. Send your resumé, cover letter and writing samples to Michelle Snyder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Need to know more? That’s fine; we value curiosity and thorough research too. Annex Business Media is Canada’s largest business-to-business media company, serving its dedicated communities in print, through news-driven websites, via enews, on social media (you Tweet, right?), on video news segments, at our own live events, and in other ways we haven’t thought of yet. That’s where you come in. Your enthusiasm and ideas have room to grow here.
You’ll be working on the Fire Fighting In Canada and Canadian Firefighter brands, and maybe a few others depending on your skill set and our needs. Our fast-paced team embraces change, new projects and opportunities to learn and grow. You have a university degree in journalism or in the research and writing-based arts, writing samples that will leave us breathless (and not from run-away sentences), and preferably a proven interest in being published or working with the written word. You are comfortable with social media, understand the different style required for the online world, and can’t imagine a world without multimedia communication.
You’ll enjoy the progressive benefits, continuing education opportunities and great office environment you’d expect from an industry innovator. You’ll also earn your stripes working with an editor who knows the business inside and out. Now it really is time to send that cover letter, resumé and writing samples to Michelle Snyder, email@example.com.
Deadline to apply is August 3, 2016.
Annex Business Media is looking for a professional proofreader to join our lively magazine production team, and maybe that’s you. If you love wordplay, live for grammar, and get steamed over inconsistent style and typos, you are exactly who we’re looking for.
Our current proofreader is moving into a magazine editorial role, creating an opportunity for someone new to join the crew. Our proofreader is the linchpin between editorial and production, working seamlessly with both teams to ensure the highest quality business-to-business products on the market. You would also work with the editorial director and magazine editors on continuing education, improving writing quality, streamlining the production process and generally sharing your great ideas on how we can be better.
You have a university degree that makes sense for this role (you’re probably not an engineer), have experience working with words, preferably in a publishing environment, a firm grasp of CP style, and a proven passion for grammar and all things concerning the great English language. You juggle multiple deadlines and conflicting priorities with ease, all the while having a little fun. A love of puns is an asset, but not required.
This is a hands-on role based in our Simcoe office. As you would expect from a market innovator like Annex Business Media, we offer a progressive range of benefits, a great office environment, training, and opportunities for growth.
