FFI is seeking a Senior Editorial Assistant to join the Oryx editorial team. With a passion for detail that enables you to know when—and when not—to use an em dash and an Oxford comma, you’ll also be able to step back to see the bigger picture involved in the production of a quarterly scientific journal. You will have undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications in conservation, environmental studies, or a related subject, and experience of copyediting scientific articles. With excellent writing, organisational and prioritising skills you will be highly motivated, show initiative and have the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

The successful candidate will be expected to become involved in all aspects of the journal production process, as well as working closely with colleagues in the Conservation Capacity team to deliver Oryx’s capacity building work. S/he will be an ambassador for the journal within FFI and among FFI’s partners and the conservation community. This is a dynamic position that will suit an individual with the desire to shape the future of a well-respected conservation journal.
