Description


A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Tatler and Vanity Fair Commercial team, in the dynamic and busy print supplements division.  The two titles produce on average twelve print supplements annually between them. Collaborating with the other key people in the team, the Associate/Junior Managing Editor will be responsible for pulling together all the strands of the supplements content on his/her assignments, which will include but not be limited to Tatler Schools Guide, Tatler Spa Guide, Tatler Cosmetic Surgery Guide. This being a commercial department, the Associate/Junior Managing Editor will also be required to keep the relevant members of the sales team updated and involved at every stage of the supplements’ creative process. No two supplements are the same:  some will require more client-facing involvement, on others there will be a unique set-up. The job is guaranteed never to be boring!  Coupled with the likelihood that print supplements never stand still but constantly evolve, this is a chance to place yourself in a pole position to innovate and help shape Tatler’s and Vanity Fair’s future.
