Custom Content Editor
Are you an emerging editorial professional looking to expand your knowledge and skills base and advance your career? Then take it to the next level with one of the world’s largest providers of content and content-enabled solutions. We are in one of the most dynamic periods in our history as technology, globalism, and economic diversity create far-reaching changes in the world. The demand for knowledge and learning has never been greater, and Wiley is at the forefront of meeting that need. We may have been founded more than two centuries ago, but our secret to success remains the same: change with the times and adapt to meet the ever-evolving needs of our customers.
We’re currently seeking a Custom Content Editor to join our team. In this role, you will be responsible for creating and controlling the overall tone and approach for editorial content (both print and digital) in custom content publications. You’ll work in conjunction with an industry professional editor and a professional society publishing partner. Responsibilities include overseeing daily operations and ensuring a smooth flow from manuscript writing and editing to production, layout design, and print publication or digital creation. You will be responsible for supervising the creation and writing articles. Additionally, you’ll work to ensure there is an adequate pipeline of publishable material and coordinate article editorial processes, including assigning articles to writers and planning and implementing art ideas. An important part of the role is ensuring that articles are prepared in a manner that conforms to ethical publishing guidelines. Making sure the writing is relevant for the type of publication and particular audience—whether that is researchers, physicians, engineers, or other STM professionals— and ensuring material is written in a journalistic and lively fashion that is more akin to consumer magazines than traditional scientific journals is a key task. Finally, you’ll be responsible for monitoring budgets and assisting in overall company performance and financial success.
We’re looking for someone with a minimum of five years’ editing experience, along with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism or other liberal arts degree. Our ideal candidate has an editorial background (magazine or newspaper) and has had exposure to creating content in print, as well as web and email media formats. To succeed in this role, you’ll be an experienced communicator who understands the value and sensitivities of managing external and internal clients and stakeholders. You are experienced and take a thoughtful approach to problem solving. You’re able to develop and maintain collaborative working relationships with peers, colleagues, management, and others.
