Sub-editor, Wallpaper* City Guides

Wallpaper* City Guides is looking for a meticulous sub-editor based in the London office. The role would suit someone who is a stickler for detail, spelling and grammar, and who has at least two years’ experience of working on a national magazine or newspaper. The ideal candidate will feel as confident about transforming copy into the signature Wallpaper* style as they will about cross-checking fine details on maps and the spelling of street names. They will enjoy the challenge of juggling several guides at once, meeting tight deadlines and working as part of a close-knit team, and will have an interest in travel, architecture and design. Proficiency in InDesign is essential.

To apply, please send your full CV together with a covering letter by 24 October to Jeremy Case at jcase@phaidon.com.
