NewCom Business Media is seeking an Associate Editor for Today’s Trucking – the award-winning business magazine of Canada’s trucking industry.
Today’s Trucking covers every aspect of the business that keeps our nation moving, including emerging technology, regulatory issues, personalities, business strategies, and more. If our qualified readers need to know something, it belongs in our pages and on our website.
We’re looking for someone who is passionate about journalism and the art of storytelling. The Associate Editor on our team is equally comfortable developing content for print and online environments, writes engaging articles, and has an eye for detail. Candidates should be prepared to travel across North America, attending formal press conferences and presentations, or simply chasing down stories wherever trucks can be found.
The Associate Editor is responsible for varied editorial duties relating to the magazine, its website, and social media feeds. These duties include, but are not limited to:
- Writing articles, copy editing, and assembling content for recurring front-of-book departments
- Writing and posting breaking news at www.todaystrucking.com
- Assembling and managing twice-weekly newsletters
- Interacting with readers through social media platforms
- Traveling and working evenings or weekends as required
Qualified candidates will have experience in a magazine or newspaper environment, a post-secondary education in journalism or communications, and comfort working with Microsoft Office software as well as Content Management System interfaces. They effectively manage their time, hold a valid automotive licence, have access to an automobile, and hold a valid passport.
Familiarity with the trucking industry is an asset, but not required.
