Recruiting a web 2.0 savvy editor

April 15, 2009 Leave a comment

I sense a real challenge in the making here for me.  I have a B2B magazine that is making the transition to the digital world not necessarily causing the demise  of the print but there is a definite need for speed in newer media.  So far we have successfully launched a webinar programme and digital versions and  do other things like web sites (currently being relaunched) and newsletters pretty well. 

But to my mind the challenge for the title is to build its community by  reaching out with a quality editorial platform.  The potential of Web 2.0 is huge in this just with sites like LinkedIn and Twitter and of course blogs alone.    

So here I’m testing the new network.  Below is a brief outline of the role – if any web 2.0 savvy journalistic bloggers are reading this and want an exciting challenge to build a network in a sector unfettered by conventional industry or job role boundaries then please get in touch.  You’d be working with one of the UK’s biggest B2B publishers and based in central London.

The Editor is also part of the brand management team responsible for driving the products’ development, their P and L and new and existing project work.

Role Summary
To drive, manage and produce editorial content and budgets for all brand media, to represent the brand to the industry and outside world, to drive brand development and manage and improve all aspects of product quality and production to schedules and to budgets.
