Job description

The Newcomen Society is the oldest learned society in the world promoting the study of the history of engineering and technology. It provides an international membership with a programme of lectures, a Journal and a magazine, Newcomen Links.

Newcomen Links

Newcomen Links is a professionally produced magazine. The current editor is moving on after ten successful years developing the magazine to its present status. Newcomen Links features a diverse range of articles ranging from the authoritative to the quirky, but all covered in a lively, well-illustrated way.  The printed magazine is a vital link with members, a showcase for the Society and attractive to a wider audience through an on-line version.

What we are looking for

The ideal candidate will have the editorial skills required to further develop the magazine. You will commission, manage and edit contributions, maintain a news and events calendar, handle preliminary design, layout and running order and source illustrations.  You will liaise with the printer over the final design.  You must be able to use Adobe InDesign and Photoshop to a professional standard. There is considerable scope for an imaginative approach to design and integrating hard copy into the digital environment. Experience in promoting published material would be welcome. Interest in the history of engineering and technology would be desirable.  

What the work involves

The role is a part-time with peaks when issues are in preparation.  Newcomen Links generally appears four times a year and each issue typically takes up to six weeks to prepare, involving about  40 hours in total. The commitment depends on the length of a particular issue but we expect to publish at least 112 pages a year.

You will attend meetings of the Society’s governing Council when requested.  These meetings are currently virtual. Close liaison with the Society’s regional centres and with the Editor of the International Journal for the History of Engineering and Technology will be important. You will be accountable to the Council, but a Council sub-committee will support your day-to-day activities.  Council members will help you solicit material from contributors.  High quality Illustrations are often supplied by contributors, but there is also a dedicated budget for buying images and covering copyright payments.
