Call for editors and project managers

Written by

Join us

E&M is looking for new editors and project managers to join our exciting and innovative online magazine and help us redefine European journalism.

About the magazine

E&M is Europe's first online lifestyle magazine created by young Europeans for young Europeans. We believe that modern, connected Europe deserves a modern, connected form of media. With this as our guiding mission, we publish transnational writing across a broad range of topics, from politics and identity to travel and sex. We aim to "make Europe personal" and want your help in doing so.

Editing E&M

We are looking for passionate, inventive and committed editors to join our editorial board and help guide the project either as editor of one of our five magazine sections (Brain, Heart, Diaphragm, Baby and Legs) or of our blog Sixth Sense. You will:

  • Pitch, commission and edit five articles for each quarterly issue (magazine editors) or at least one article per week (blog editors) by authors from our international network
  • Contribute to decision-making in the running of E&M through editorial Skype conferences
  • Develop projects beyond the magazine such as workshops, debating events and journalism prizes

Managing E&M

We are also looking for new team members to help deal with the managerial side of things. In particular, we want to start getting the word out about E&M to a much larger audience via more effective use of social media. You will be responsible for:

  • Organising the magazine (e.g. running editorial Skype conferences and meetings)
  • Forging partnerships and networks (e.g. communication and negotiations with partners, participation in meetings and conferences)
  • Overseeing funding and spending with regard to the magazine and related projects (e.g. writing funding applications)
  • Developing a new communications / social media stragegy

Why E&M?

As part of the E&M team, you'll get to play a leading role in a magazine with 28 published issues, over 4,000 Facebook likes, 100 writers and a Charlemagne youth prize to its name. You'll meet like-minded people from across the continent, gain valuable experience in running an international publication and have the freedom to pursue your own journalistic ideas and ambitions.

What we are looking for

All of our editors and project managers voluntarily commit at least seven hours per week to the project alongside our regular work or education. We would expect the same level of commitment from you. You must be highly motivated and capable of working independently and responsibly for non-financial rewards.

To apply, you must be under 35 years of age and proficient in written and spoken English. Journalistic experience is a definite advantage, as is an affinity with social media. But far more importantly, you must be passionate about transnationalism and about Europe in the broadest sense: E&M is a labour of love!

How to apply

To apply to E&M as an editor or project manager, go to www.europeandme.eu/application and fill out our online application form. Don't forget to mention in your application which role you'd be most interested in. The deadline is 10 June 2015, and we expect to conduct interviews the following week.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at application [at] europeandme.eu

Editorial

If the Editorial team had an actual office it would have to stretch from the corner of Britain to the edges of Spain, Sweden, Germany and beyond. (With frequent trips to America too) .  The term 'from the editorial office' then, is very much a figure of speech.
