There's a vacancy not far from the hottest seat of power over at the NME. They're looking for a new features editor, apparently:
The successful candidate will be bursting with ideas, be able to edit copy until it sparkles, know what NME's new audience want before they know they want it and be able to get the very best out of NME's army of eager freelancers. You will also be incredibly organised and able work well in a team.
Plus, you'll bloody be able to swallow your tongue and produce an Oasis A to Z when it's deemed appropriate.
How would a person approach and ask for this job?
• Cover photo concept/structure
• Main cover sell
• Feature picture concept
• Feature headline
• Feature sell
• Brief for the feature with word count
• Two potential feature pull-quotes
We're sending in a suggestion for all three which involves scrapping the whole lot and running a half-page interview with The Motorcycle Boy as the cover story.
You'll have to be sharpish, mind, as the whole caboodle closes tomorrow.
