  • To oversee and train all interns to ensure they become a valued and an integral part of the team.
  • Confidence to take the initiative and work with a small team and be prepared to work long hours, to reach tight editorial deadlines when needed.
  • To constantly be on the search for new and inspiring women from the GCC to feature in our magazines to ensure that HBA leads and doesn’t follow.
  • To respect the editorial integrity and international guidelines of the brands when producing content.


Additional skills required:

  • Creative flair that continually produces unique and engaging features and shoots for readers.
  • Structured and organised work management.
  • A working knowledge of basic InDesign is preferable.
  • Ability to work well under pressure and maintain high attention to detail.
  • Sensitivity to the specific requirements and cultural considerations presented by this region.


Desired profile:

We are looking for someone who is extremely organised, can perform in a pressured environment, is proactive, self-motivated and capable of managing a heavy workload, whilst consistently bringing unique and creative ideas to the table, and able to see them from concept through to production to a high standard. Crucially, they must be flexible and have a can-do, positive attitude.

Additional information:

Reporting to the Fashion & Beauty Director, the Fashion & Beauty Assistant will work alongside Fashion & Beauty interns. Please be aware that whilst official hours are 9:00am-6:00pm, out of hours work is expected on occasion, making up for quieter periods.
