The successful applicant should have a history of editing and publication, excellent written and spoken English language skills, strong strategic and leadership skills and exceptional time management. Previous editorial experience is required. The term of office is two years with up to two extensions. The honorarium for this office is £4700 per annum.

As well as the opportunity to work with an excellent and cohesive editorial team, rewards include free registration at major Association of Anaesthetists’ meetings.

Applicants should submit a statement of up to 500 words on the subject of ‘Future steps in developing Anaesthesia Reports’ to, together with a short CV (no more than two A4 pages) and a cover letter justifying their application.
