Chemistry World is the business-to-business magazine for the chemical sciences. Its 65,000 readers include the members of the Royal Society of Chemistry, business executives and leading scientists around the world, including China, who read its new and highly-successful sister edition, Chemistry World China. Globally, our readers look to the magazine for a unique international perspective on current developments in a fast-changing environment.
As part of the ongoing development, Chemistry World is changing fast and is now expanding its business coverage.
As a result, we're looking for an experienced journalist who's familiar with the chemical or pharmaceutical industry and keen to find a new and high-profile challenge. You'll have the freedom to shape our new business news section and regular business features, ensuring that the publication continues to have a wide reach beyond academia.
We'll expect you to research and commission news and features, plan story concepts and develop ideas for both our magazine and website. But you'll still be someone who enjoys hands-on writing, editing and proofing and will also be happy to generate ideas for images that can be used alongside articles.
All the time, you'll be on the look out for stories - using your contacts, visiting companies, attending conferences and conducting interviews. Communication skills and customer focus are therefore just as important as your knowledge of business and science. Ref: 08-16.
We offer competitive salaries together with an attractive benefits package, including 26 days holiday, contributory pension scheme, free life assurance, private healthcare provision and, where appropriate, relocation allowance.
