Sub-editor - The Week

  • Do you have a meticulous eye for detail and a love of grammar?
  • Do you know what a dangling modifier is?
  • Have you had experience working as Sub Editor, Copy Editor or Production Editor?

The Week, one of the UK’s leading weekly current affairs magazines, is looking for a first-class sub-editor.

The Week magazine takes only the best news, current affairs and political articles from the UK and international media and expertly edits them together, giving a balanced and concise view of the news from the past seven days. In just one hour, readers will be brought up to date with the most important news and events, in a refreshingly succinct and witty style.

Job Overview:

The sub-editor reads and edits every page in the magazine, so you will need to be able to work quickly and accurately, and be used to working in a fast-paced news environment. This is a full-time position based in our Queensway office.


  • Knowledge of InDesign is required, as well as a keen interest in current affairs.
  • The role will also involve some work on The Week’s app, so familiarity with content management systems would be a real bonus, and from time to time you will be expected to deputise for the production editor.
  • Proven experience as a Sub Editor, Copy Editor or Production Editor.
