Centenary News is looking for a volunteer Editor to oversee the editorial content of the website and liaise with other Centenary organisations.

The Editor would help investigate ways of funding the website; and be involved in working out how the site can report on the many Centenary conferences and other events that are due to take place around the world in the coming year.

The Centenary News website has come a long way since it was launched in 2011.

Visitor numbers are increasing each month, and a growing number of Centenary organisations in the UK and around the world are sending in information about their activities. The site is linked to an active Facebook page and Twitter feed.

This role may appeal to a journalist, TV producer or historian who has taken retirement, or to someone who is looking for an extra voluntary role.

Centenary News is based in a digital production office near Caledonian Road tube station – and the Editor would need to spend at least 2 days a week or 4 half days a week in the office, but this would be open to discussion.

The Editor would report to the Chair and Editorial Director of Centenary News, and to the Centenary News Board.

We are also looking for Board members and more volunteer writers and researchers to work on the website.

If you are interested in the Editor’s role or would like to become a Board member or a volunteer writer or researcher, then please send a CV and covering letter to ww1centenarynews@gmail.com.

The closing date for this position is 22/10/2013.
