Very strong editorial and writing skills are essential (and will be tested as part of the application process); you should also demonstrate the ability to juggle tasks, meet deadlines and stay calm under pressure. You will have worked in publishing (ideally travel guides) for at least 3 years, have experience of project management and managing budgets, and be very computer literate. Familiarity with digital publishing and InDesign an advantage (but not essential).
