Anaesthesia News Managing Editor

The Association of Anaesthetists is seeking to appoint a Managing Editor for Anaesthesia News.  This is a key role in the organisation. The post holder will have the opportunity to lead and develop this much-loved keystone of the Association. The post will involve attending the quarterly meetings of the Council (and, on occasion, the Board) of the Association and offers the chance to attend key Association educational events in an official capacity.

Anaesthesia News is the monthly membership newsletter of the Association, circulated to over 11,000 members in Great Britain, Ireland and overseas; 98% of members in the Association’s 2011 membership survey said they regularly read it.

This is an honorary role that offers excellent opportunities for a practicing, or recently retired anaesthetist (clinically active within the last three years) to develop this successful monthly publication for the Association’s members. It is a hands-on role (typically 20h a month), working with and supported by a strong team. These include the issue editors (including consultant anaesthetists, SAS and trainees) and experienced in-house editorial design/production staff (a professional designer on the Association’s staff and an editorial assistant provided by Editorial Office Ltd). Issue editors are each responsible for individual issues, with the Managing Editor providing oversight and continuity.

How to apply:

Candidates are asked to submit electronically: a CV; a letter of application (maximum 400 words) describing the reasons for applying for this role and their skills/experience offered in relation to the person specification; and, a personal statement (maximum 600 words) setting out the applicants vision for the future development of Anaesthesia News as a print and digital publication.

Closing date for applications:

Applications should be sent by 9:00 on Monday 15 July 2019 to secretariat@anaesthetists.org.
