WORK FOR MSLEXIA!
The national magazine for women writers will be recruiting two or more team members in the near future to replace one key person who is relocating, and for help developing and launching several new projects.
We are especially interested in hearing from well-organised self-starters with a range of abilities, which must include strong digital and marketing skills. Knowledge of the UK writing scene would also be an advantage. Programmes we work with include InDesign, Photoshop and Filemaker Pro. Mslexia is located in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne.
If you are interested, please email a one-page CV to Editorial Director Debbie Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will send out full job description/s and start dates as soon as they are available.
