The India Editor will be the creative force behind all facets of the brand – in digital/ video/ social, events and print. The role requires a combination of talents: an intimate understanding of the intersection of technology/ business/ design/ culture, a journalist’s instinct, a strong visual sense, an appreciation of design, imagination, a relentless curiosity about the new and the different, an excitement about the possibilities presented by new digital platforms; an ability and appetite to source and manage creative talent across different parts of the business.
The Editor works alongside the Publisher to provide the leadership and vision for the India brand. It is much more than a website or magazine editorship: the role requires someone with a creative, ideas-led focus – an intimate understanding of the brand’s voice. Rigorous quality control in hiring editors, designers, writers, photographers and digital talent is essential, at every level.
The Editor will be the ambassador for online magazine in India and internationally. Therefore, the right candidate needs the ability to represent brand internally, to advertisers, on stage, through other media channels, and to the network of technologists, designers, artists, business people and influencers who form the brand’s core constituency.
