Due to the impending retirement of the current editor, the Tax Faculty is seeking a new editor for its flagship magazine TAXline. The magazine has established an enviable reputation under the current editor for producing interesting and practical content and member feedback is consistently good.
As editor, you will have overall responsibility for content of the monthly magazine and its production every month in accordance with the production schedule agreed with the publishers. The role will involve commissioning, editing and writing material for the magazine and liaising with authors and contributors to ensure a successful and timely magazine with a good range of practical points and articles meeting the needs of Tax Faculty members. The production process involves regular discussions and liaison with the publishers commencing with reviewing content plans and seeing through final proofs for publication. The role is expected to take about two days a week on average, but the editor will need to be flexible so as to ensure that production deadlines are met.
This is a prestigious and a high profile role for the Faculty. We need an editor who has a good tax knowledge across all areas of tax and has proven writing and editing skills as well as being an excellent communicator. The editor will also need to work closely with existing Tax Faculty staff and active members to ensure that the magazine continues to adapt and develop to changes in the tax system and digital developments. The role could suit someone who is looking for a role at the cutting edge of tax but who would appreciate some flexibility. There may also be an opportunity to become involved in some other areas of work of the Tax Faculty.
If you are interested in applying for this important role, please send your CV and a covering note to Frank.Haskew@icaew.com.
