Job Title: Managing Editor
Reports to: CEO, Editor-In-Chief
Start date: Immediately
End date: TBD, depends on your school schedule
Compensation: volunteer, freelance
Hours: 3-10 hours per week depending on projects assigned their due dates
The Arbitrage Magazine team is looking for an individual to assist its Editor-in-Chief in managing its growing writing team. The Managing Editor will be the second in command, overseeing the magazine’s development and ensuring that it grows organically.
The Managing Editor will ensure writers meet their deadlines, and that articles get edited and published in a timely manner—he/she will coordinate and delegate to ensure this is the case.
In all, a position as the Arbitrage Magazine’s Managing Editor will entail working closely with the various Arbitrage Magazine divisions to bring together all content related elements needed for a successful web (and soon print) publication. All work will be done virtually, with relatively few physical meetings carried out over the course of the year.
- Required to contribute one sectional article or feature per season.
- Remind and work with the writing staff (using emails and phone calls) to ensure all articles are handed in on time.
- Required to collect all the article contributions from the staff and contributing writers, provide each writer with an email receipt of their contribution, then place all articles into the central database for editing and publication.
- Facilitate feedback between the editors and writers to ensure the writers continually develop their writing skills.
- Be the point person for all questions from the writing staff; you will answer all questions where possible OR delegate the question to whomever is best suited to answer it; you will ensure all questions are answered (i.e. follow ups).
- Provide the Editor-In-Chief (and occasionally the CEO) with weekly status updates where needed.
- Assist the Editor-In-Chief (and occasionally the CEO) with ongoing strategic tasks.
- Contribute 3 to 10 hours per week (the spike in hours will only take place during the quarterly 1-2 week magazine production blitz)
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
By the time you leave the ARB, you’ll have gained the following transferable skills that you can use in many other employment settings. Specifically, you’ll learn how to:
- Manage and coordinate a large team that’s spread out internationally
- Grow and develop the voice and editorial direction of an established publication
- Partner with external partners and deal with a variety of requests from the public
- Learn how to effectively work in a virtual environment (i.e. the future of work)
- Since the ARB is connected to the Google News network, your articles have the potential to be picked up and exposed to a GLOBAL readership. Depending on the quality and timeliness of your articles, they may also be cited in other major publications; past ARB writers have had their articles cited by theCBC, CNN, and the Huffington Post, to name a few.
- All ARB staff members will receive a reference letter after four months of successful service to the publication. You will be able to use the founder as a personal reference after eight months of successful service.
- Be provided with a large orientation package and training process that will provide you with the tools to grow professionally.
- You’ll be able to add by-lines to your portfolio from an established and well-known publication.
- You’ll be a part of a (really big) team that’s doing great work!
Those who excel in their roles and show an interest for increased responsibilities will have the opportunity to grow within the ARB (when opportunities become available) to assume the following positions: editor-in-chief.
- Be an active student (rare exceptions apply)
- Attention to detail, highly organized and can meet deadlines
- Excellent writing and editing skills
- Must be able to work independently and manage a large team
- Must have strong computer skills and ability to quickly learn online collaboration applications.
