Radio Times, Senior Sub-Editor - TV Listings | 4 Days P/W
Radio Times - Covers Party 2019
Radio Times is one of the most familiar and trusted media brands in Britain. This reputation resides in the authority it carries in broadcasting matters and the high quality of its listings. RT's Listings subbing team maintains that reputation at the sharp end.
Candidates for the role of TV Listings senior sub should have good all-round journalistic intelligence and at the same time be obsessive about good writing, precise description, literate English, accuracy – and hitting tight deadlines.
They should also possess wide knowledge and appreciation of broadcasting matters, in particular of television and radio output; and also of the TV listings market.
In addition to being among the best sub-editors in the business, applicants should have the experience and authority to stand in seamlessly for any of the five TV Listings chief subs when they are away – last year that totalled 36 weeks out of 52.
Candidates need to be tip-top performers – flexible, involved in senior decisions, and ready to pick up whatever’s thrown at them. They don’t directly manage staff, but they take a lead role in guiding the work of the TV subs, and training new freelancers.
We’re particularly interested in candidates who understand and respect the importance of subbing, style and good journalism, but who can also bring new ideas, and might like the opportunity to contribute more widely across the RT brand, in time.
