JOBS ALERT: Production sub-editors wanted for Ireland’s biggest local newspaper publisher

Iconic Newspapers, Ireland’s biggest local newspaper publisher, is expanding and we now have vacancies for a number of full-time and part-time positions at the company’s editorial production hub, based in Portlaoise.

While full training on our template-based content management system will be provided, experience of newspaper page make-up will be a clear advantage.  

We are looking for talented people who can help us maintain the high production values of our growing stable of local newspapers around the country.

The roles will be offered on both a full-time and part-time basis, supporting  the production cycle of our titles. The responsibilities will include:

* Regular liaison with editorial and commercial staff at the different titles over the planning and accurate execution of pages, ensuring that strict print deadlines are met.

* The ability to produce attractive, eye-catching finished pages, consistent with templated designs, in a fast-paced environment with exacting standards.

* The ability to sub-edit and apply the appropriate typographical house styles to the copy provided by local correspondents from around the country.

* The production of attractive picture spreads from local events, accurately captioned.

To apply, please email ckelly@iconicnewspapers.ie, including a covering letter, CV and examples of your published work.

The closing date for applications is Friday, September 20, 2019.
