RHS: Sub-editor

The RHS are looking to recruit an ‘accuracy-obsessed’ sub-editor to join the RHS Editorial Department.

RHS The Garden Magazine Cover

The new candidate will be reporting into the Workflow Manager, and play a vital role in ensuring quality is maintained across the RHS flagship magazine, The Garden, as well as the other print and digital products they produce.

The Garden is a monthly magazine, available digitally or as a paper version for all RHS members. The magazine contains a selection of features covering the latest developments in horticulture, gardens to visit, RHS news such as shows, plant trials and RHS charitable works.

As the new sub-editor, you will be responsible for proofing and amending copy to print deadlines, while ensuring content consistently meets the high standards set by the Society. You will be horticulturally trained to RHS Level 2, or equivalent. You will be fully competent with InDesign, and you may well have experience of working in a CMS.

Key responsibilities include (amongst other); text editing; writing captions, headlines and stand firsts in the RHS house style; fact checking and confirming to copyright laws.
