Niche Media, the publisher of Architectural Review Asia Pacific, Inside Interior Design Review, and Facility Management is looking for an experienced Editor. This exciting role will see you work across print, digital and event properties.

Your knowledge of the architecture and design industry will be a key factor in determining your success in this role. Additionally, you should be able to manage multiple deadlines, numerous contributors and have great attention to detail. The ability to prepare and outsource accurate and compelling editorial is essential, and in this regard candidates must also have experience in editing and writing in order to be considered.

Breathe, eat, dream, write and live design.

Candidates should:

  • Have worked in the architecture and design industry, or as a journalist or editor for 2-5 years.
  • Be able to write a feature article, organise a collaborative piece and write news just as well as you write and manage a brief. You will be producing a quality bi-monthly publication working alongside a great designer and supporting network.
  • Understand how to build and optimise digital audiences.
  • Understand that content is not just text and images: content is video, community, crowdsourcing, curation, judging, critique, visualisation.
  • Be an excellent project manager and hate deadlines so much that you beat them.
  • Be able to handle yourself in interviews and meetings with a diverse range of clients and individuals, ranging from multinationals to SMEs to industry legends.
  • Be confident with multitasking, public speaking and the grunt work that keeps an industry website, magazine and social media network going.
  • Always be looking for brand extension opportunities: books, guides, events, content marketing and syndication opportunities.
  • Understand that relationships are key to growing audiences, maintaining commercial partnerships and improving internal efficiencies.

The company is staffed by a dedicated, passionate (scarily so), fun team, and the division counts industry leaders among its contributors. We are a 25 year-old publisher crossing a number of verticals with best-of-class titles, both online and off.

We are aggressively growing our online audiences and digital commercial opportunities, and we are a lot of fun to work with. The company is based in South Melbourne – right around the corner from many of Melbourne’s best cafes.
