••This Position Has Been Filled – thanks••

A PAN reader, Picture Editor at a London based contract publisher, is seeking a freelance picture editor/researcher for cover 14th April to the 17th.
‘The main role is commissioning across titles, both in the UK and worldwide although there is usually only one or two international jobs. I can leave a list of photographers we use so contacts are not essential and the Art Editors can advise if guidance is needed. It’s a really cool job working with excellent creative photographers and the team here are brilliant. Its a very jolly office and you’re pretty much left to get on with things. The other part of the job is picture research and I’d be surprised if you don’t know the agencies we use as they are all pretty mainstream but again will leave lists with passwords etc along with a complete handover.’

If you are free and fancy the job email [email protected] and I will pass on your details.
