The successful applicant will be working across our portfolio of female interest craft magazines and will be proofreading a wide variety of editorial content, focusing primarily on step-by-step project instructions. The junior sub-editor works as part of our larger subbing team, which ensure deadlines and quality standards are maintained across our print and digital business.


  • Sub-editing and proofing content across our portfolio of craft magazines;
  • Maintaining quality standards and editorial tone across all magazines;
