Coffee House

We’re hiring at The Spectator: arts editor and blogs editor wanted

Those of you who read The Spectator mainly for its peerless arts coverage have Liz Anderson to thank for keeping up a formula of quality, variety, heft and zest. We’re all very sad that she is retiring this summer, after many successful years at the top of her game. She’ll be a tough act to follow: we’d need someone as brilliant and well-informed about the arts as she is; with the skill and energy to promote and project our wonderful arts coverage online and in our digital editions. The candidate must show an ability to commission brilliant writers for striking, original lead stories, as well as proof-reading and sub-editing, etc. Experience of InDesign, our desktop publishing software, would also be an advantage. It’s a tough job – but a great one.

In addition David Blackburn, our brilliant blogs editor, is having a career change and is going in pursuit of a career in the City. He joined us six years ago when we hardly had any digital content to speak of – now he oversees a stable of bloggers, and is our go-to man for ideas about the ever-changing world of digital expansion. We’d need his successor to be able to do a bit of everything: oversee the Steerpike blog, help run Coffee House when Isabel Hardman is away and the dark art of search engine optimisation — plus other digital tricks we haven’t thought of yet.

The Spectator is a small and, ergo, hard-working team: we all do a bit of everything. Our model is to hire a few very good people, and give them the freedom to excel. The best part of the job lies in working for The Spectator’s readers. They are the best-read, best-humoured cohort of people you’ll find anywhere. They now like to read us on their app, read the magazine in the bath, listen to our Podcast or watch us on the nascent Spectator TV. Our website traffic has doubled, and our total sales are heading towards an all-time high.

It’s a great time to join the world’s greatest magazine – so anyone interested please email jobs@spectator.co.uk with some thoughts on what you could bring. And please don’t include education on your CV; journalistic experience and love of good writing is all that matters. The deadline for applications is Monday 23 June.

Give something clever this Christmas – a year’s subscription to The Spectator for just £75. And we’ll give you a free bottle of champagne. Click here.
