Canterbury Courier Editor

We are looking for an ambitious, creative and personable individual to be the Editor of our magazine for Canterbury, the Canterbury Courier. This quarterly, uplifting print magazine is the seventh in our portfolio in Kent.

The ideal candidate will be full of ideas and able to work both independently and as part of a wider publishing team. The post holder should live in and be well connected in Canterbury and have editorial experience, preferably for a local magazine. They will need to be comfortable becoming ‘the face’ of the magazine and in forming and maintaining strong, positive connections within the Canterbury community.

Duties include deciding and commissioning content and working with a designer to see the magazine through to publication. It is estimated that the role requires 30 to 40 hours of work per issue, four times per year (spring, summer, autumn and winter). The month before the issue is published is the busiest and requires the highest number of hours. It is essential that the postholder is able to organize their workload alongside other commitments and work independently and flexibly from home or a workspace. This is a part-time, freelance role, with a set fee paid per issue. The fee varies according to the issue’s pagination, but is from £600 per issue.

The role will commence in August 2024, so the Winter 2024 issue (published in November 2024) will be their first issue as Editor. Full training will be given in August 2024.

To apply for the position, send your CV and a letter of application (no longer than a single side of A4) to Clare on
