Puzzles Sub-Editor (maternity cover)

Location: Bristol

Are you a fan of crosswords and puzzles? If so, then this could be the ideal job for you.

PA Media’s Puzzles Department specialises in providing crosswords and puzzles to the national and regional press – for print and digital publication.

We currently have a vacancy for a sub-editor to work in our busy Bristol office on a full-time temporary contract.

Your role will entail proofreading and desk-top publishing crosswords, quizzes and other kinds of puzzles. There may also be opportunities to compile puzzles. If you have InDesign and Photoshop experience that would be an advantage, but not essential, as in-house training will be provided.

Your ability to adapt to using different software would be useful.

To be successful in this role you must possess an excellent level of accuracy and attention to detail. Good communication skills and the ability to work to tight deadlines are also key requirements.

To apply, please send your CV and covering letter to Peter Stirling, Head of Puzzles at Peter.Stirling@pa.media

Closing date: 31st December 2019

We will be considering candidates as they apply, so please don’t delay in submitting your application.

The company encourages applications from all sectors of the community.
