Every month MC Publishing Limited produce two of the UK’s finest, city lifestyle magazines;  The Bath Magazine and The Bristol Magazine. In each city they are also the biggest by print, circulation and readership.

We now have a rare, full-time opportunity for a talented, accomplished and enthusiastic editor to take a fully immersive, lead role in continuing our success at The Bath Magazine.

As well as all conceivable editorial functions, you will be central to the magazine’s development and must be fully committed to every aspect of this figurehead role.

Finely educated, cultured, and articulate, you will be very personable, able to lead from the front and will set the topics, agenda and tone of the magazine using your in-depth knowledge of the city; its character, its quirks and be sensible to every aspect of life and living in Bath.

The Editor must also be a strategic thinker and clearly understand the title’s commercial priorities working with the sales team on special features and projects.

Additional to all of the above, you will also need to be proficient in magazine production and workflow, be fully computer literate, work to deadlines (often ’til late) and be fully capable of initial page layouts using Quark and Photoshop.

The Editor’s role is demanding too and as an ambassador for The Bath Magazine there are many opportunities for out of hours functions and social appearances, so a can-do attitude and willingness to be accessible (often at short notice) is required.

Most of all you must have a deep desire to provide superb, engaging content, make interesting features happen, and deliver a magazine of the highest standard to our readers with every issue.

We love what we do, we take enormous pride in the depth and quality of our editorial offering, and our readers and advertisers really appreciate our work – it is hard, but rewarding.
