A vacancy will soon occur for the post of UK Editor (Scotland, Wales, the English provinces, opera and ballet) following the impending retirement of Roger Jones. Editorial skills and some knowledge of classical music would be advantageous for the post, but good English and punctuation are particularly important. The Editor will work as part of a team of editors and will receive submissions from reviewers from all round the UK which need to be checked and put into a publishable form before being sent off to the webmasters. Please note that the Editor is not obliged to be based in the UK, though knowledge of the UK would be a prerequisite.
If you would like to know more please email firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance for an informal exploratory discussion. Also please use this email address of any other queries about Seen and Heard International.
