Wanted: Writer/sub-editor

THE magazine, Scottish Field, is seeking to appoint a writer/sub-editor, to succeed Peter Ranscombe, who is leaving next month, to work freelance, including in Life Sciences reporting, and also to undertake corporate copywriting, such as annual reports, marketing materials and content for the web.

The deadline for applications is the 20th of next month, with the advert being advertised here on allmediascotland and repeated on twitter.com/allmediajobs.

Ranscombe joined Scottish Field earlier this year from The Scotsman, where he was, latterly, business correspondent.

As reported by allmediascotland last year – here – he is looking forward to the publication, in December, of his debut novel, Hare – which asks what happened to convicted mass murderer, William Burke’s partner-in-crime, William Hare, after he turned king’s evidence on his accomplice, letting Burke hang for their crimes while he was set free.
