Due to an internal promotion Insider Media Limited is recruiting for a Business Editor to work with and support the Editor in Yorkshire. Insider has exciting plans for expansion in 2017.

Yorkshire Business Insider is the only monthly, pan-Yorkshire, business magazine. Its reach is increasing and this year new product development will ensure that there are more editorial pages for the Insider magazine. The division also hosts a growing number of business events and also has a market-leading regional news email newsletter.

  • The successful new Business Editor will ideally already have experience of writing for the B2B market and ideally have magazine experience too.

  • The Business Editor will take responsibility for specific events such networking breakfast debates, round table discussions and black tie dinners and will also take responsibility for ensuring that specific business sector coverage in the magazine is the very best it can be for our readership, which comprises business owners and senior managers.

  • The Business Editor will be responsible for ensuring that the coverage in the magazine highlights the very best businesses who are thriving and growing in the region within key sectors. The magazine also supports the thriving professional sector in the region reporting on their deals and other activities.

  • The Business Editor will be expected to get behind the scenes to give Insider insight into how entrepreneurs are increasing profit and making their businesses successful across a wide range of business sectors to inspire and inform our readers.

The North is the centre of attention right now with the Northern Powerhouse and other major initiatives linked to globally significant research and development across the region.

In addition to the skills required to edit a magazine, the successful applicant will be comfortable in front of an audience and ideally no stranger to speaking to audiences both small (chairing round table events for circa 8 – 10 attendees) and large black tie dinners for circa 500 people or more.

Insider is currently formulating a new plan for the development of our social media capability, video and webcasts / podcasts will all be part of the exciting mix that the editor will be involved in to expand the reach of Insider across the region.
