If only I paid more attention in English classes at school.. and could work well in teams.. and remain calm under pressure! They’re just some of the qualities that I don’t have for an interesting job at the Art Newspaper. It sounds like a dream job for someone into art and wanting to travel to some interesting places.
Here’s what they’re after..
Art Market Editor – maternity cover (full time)
The Art Newspaper
Salary: dependent on experience
The Art Newspaper is looking for an experienced art market journalist/editor for a period of 10 months, starting 1 November 2008.
The candidate will be based in our London office working on our monthly issues, and must be willing and able to join The Art Newspaper team for Art Basel Miami Beach (Dec 2008), Armory in New York (March 2009) and Art Basel (June). The role includes reporting on auctions (many of which take place in the evenings) and art market news, as well as coordinating our team of international reporters.
The ideal candidate will have demonstrable experience of art market reporting and editing.
However, we will in exceptional cases consider candidates with a track record of working in the art market who wish to transfer to journalism, or general arts journalist/editors with robust modern and contemporary art history who would like to specialise in the art market.
Shortlisted candidates may be asked to complete a written assignment or art history test.
Ability to work in teams with other writers and editors, and remain calm under pressure, essential.
