Are you a dedicated, independent, caring and experienced editor?

 

We’re a growing national health and communications consultancy based in the inner west of Sydney. We work with governments, NGOs and academic institutions, and only with clients who have the public good at heart.

We’re looking for someone to work 4 or 5 days a week in our office as our editorial services manager. Which is really an editor with client responsibilities. Obviously, you’d need to be a good writer and editor, capable of writing for both professional and consumer audiences, and be experienced in the publishing process. And obviously, you’d want some background in health or experience in the health sector.

But beyond that? You’d want to have enough maturity to work independently, but enjoy people enough to want to be part of a team. You’d want variety – you might be editing training programs for doctors one day, writing an article for the newspaper next day and updating our website the third. You’d have to be good at detail, but more importantly, you’d have to be able to see the big picture and be able to think about why we communicate the way we do. You could, if you wanted, get involved in our advocacy to reduce inequity. And you’d need to be efficient – there’s plenty to do.

Why would you want to work with us? The pay is reasonable – $70,000 plus super pro rata – but it won’t be about the money. You’ll like working with us if you like an employer that:

  • is clear and honest in communicating
  • treats all team members with respect while maintaining individual accountability and responsibility
  • shares the decision making process with you
  • is relaxed and provides family-friendly flexibility
  • believes integrity is one of the most important things in a business
  • will take feedback constructively and provide constructive criticism
  • works to contribute to an improvement in health and equality in Australia and our region
  • provides excellent results.
