We’re looking to hire a talented and seasoned senior editor with a strong background in editorial strategy and business journalism who is passionate about making excellent content and building exciting and impactful brands that help people win at work!
You will lead the audience building strategy for People Managing People, building and actioning a robust content plan of best-in-class stories—primarily focused on the topics of HR and people management—that are insightful, delightfully original, and hyper relevant. You will leverage the brand identity and authority of PMP today to push it forward and create the sort of elevated and high-quality, share-worthy written content that not only accelerates the growth of our readership in the short-term, but turns casual readers into brand lovers. You will be instrumental in transforming People Managing People into an indispensable industry publication.
As a part of the BWZ media team, you will report to the Managing Editor and serve as a mentor to the current editor of PMP.
You have done it all, from producing deeply researched and reported features and quick turnaround news & trend stories, to managing ambitious editorial calendars and tentpole content packages. You are an ace editor who obsesses over finding the most compelling angle for any story, and push your writers to dig deeper into the right details to transform a good article into a great one. Even when you’re in the weeds, you’re keeping your eye trained on the strategy behind each piece of content.
You’re dedicated to maintaining high standards of quality, and make sure that every piece of content published under your watch is top-notch. Beyond creating whip-smart headlines and checking grammar and heading structure, you’re also alert for details that others might miss (weird link, citation without a source, a list that should really be turned into bullets, keyword stuffing, a meta description that could be improved). You catch things that other people don’t!
You have a nose for a great story, and are always on the hunt for the next one—with a preternatural ability to stay abreast of the latest research, news, data, and trends to understand what’s going to resonate deeply with your audience. You love a good content planning brainstorm session, but recognize the breaking stories that are worth jumping on in real time. You’re deeply committed to honing your expertise on the industries and subjects you cover, and are a quick study on topics you don’t know a lot about.
