British Online Archives (BOA) is one of the UK’s leading academic publishers and online repositories. Hosting over four million records, carefully selected from private and public archives such as the British Library and the National Archives, BOA’s specially curated collections cover over 500 years of world history.
Organised thematically, these collections provide invaluable source material for those working in a wide range of disciplines, including history, politics, sociology, and international relations. They offer unique insights into global historical events through a British lens, informing not only our understanding of history, but our current social, cultural, economic, and political landscape.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated Senior Editor to lead the editorial team and contribute to the success of British Online Archives.
Reporting to the Head of Publishing, and working with colleagues in the editorial team, you will oversee and contribute to the creation of digital products for online release, ensuring that products withstand appropriate academic scrutiny and are released in line with the publication schedule. You will be responsible for implementing editorial guidelines and tone, as well as the continuous review and adaptation of editorial processes and workflows to ensure the improvement and timely completion of each project. You will work with advisory boards and academics to guide the editorial process. Furthermore, you will support digital promotion through submission of content to the marketing manager and software developer as appropriate. You will also work with the content team to advise on and help develop new collection ideas. This exciting role will provide plenty of opportunities for creativity and academic engagement, including writing articles, recording podcasts, and engaging in academic events and conferences.
The ideal candidate will be educated to degree level or higher, in history or a related field, and have a strong understanding of current historiographical debates in multiple areas of research. You will be an excellent writer and proof-reader with a keen eye for detail. Prior experience managing a team and ensuring deadlines are met is desirable.
This post is available on a full time basis of between 28 and 35 hours per week, and will be primarily remote. However, the successful candidate may need to attend our Leeds City Centre office as and when required.
