Wanted: Food Manufacture associate editor

Related tags Food manufacture Manufacturing

The Food Manufacture Group is looking for a talented, multi-media, business-to-business journalist, hungry for that first big break into editorial management. Could you separate food and drink manufacturing fact from fiction – or do you know a likely candidate? If so, please contact us.

We are looking for a confident individual who can write and broadcast convincingly about the latest developments in manufacturers’ battle to boost quality output, while curbing costs, plus the continuing debate about producers’ role in reducing dietary sugar, fat and salt. Could you interview a captain of industry or a factory manager to lay bare their business and technical philosophy?

If the answer is yes, Food Manufacture would like to hear from you. We want to recruit an associate editor to contribute features, news and business analysis to our print title and multi-media news to FoodManufacture.co.uk.

Passion to break top stories

Knowledge of food and drink manufacturing industry is less important than a passion to break top stories, the ability to learn quickly, attention to detail, strong organisational skills and a commitment to multi-media journalism, including video news and audio podcasts. If you lack those skills now, we’ll help you develop them quickly.

Key tasks include: taking responsibility for the flagship sections of the magazine, such as The Big Interview and Me & My Factory, the supplement Food Ingredients, Health & Nutrition and assisting the editor in producing the magazine.

You will also contribute online content to FoodManufacture.co.uk, which enjoys an audience of more than 100,000 independently-audited unique monthly visitors.

Interview a government minister

Based in Crawley, West Sussex, the successful candidate will relish the challenges of switching between print, online and social media outlets. The successful candidate will be curious, assertive, determined and adept at switching from presenting a video interview with a government minister about food exports to producing a feature that gets under the skin of a food factory manager.

He or she will also need to able to translate complex scientific, technical and business information into compelling content for our print, online and face-to-face audiences.
