Location: Oakville, Ontario

Mechanical Business is currently looking for a talented, energetic editor who can take almost any topic and turn it into an entertaining and informative must-read article for our readers. An ability to nail deadlines, meticulous attention to detail, and bringing a sense of fun and curiosity to the job will give you an edge over other applicants.

Duties will include social media, digital and print platforms, creating content, writing features, fact-checking, proofreading and corresponding with contributors. Working with writers, photographers, designers and the advertising department, the ideal candidate must be able to work independently, as well as part of a team, often under minimal supervision. Domestic and international travel to industry events and trade shows is required, so there will be occasions of irregular work hours. Must haves include an appropriate car, camera and valid passport. Experience using InCopy and content management systems are definite pluses.

Ideally, you bring an applicable degree or diploma and experience in a publishing environment. Some knowledge of, or interest in, the building trades would be an asset. Please apply in confidence to careers@mechanicalbusiness.com with a resume, cover letter, a link to two published clippings and three references.

We sincerely thank all applicants for their interest but only those selected for an interview will be contacted.

Application Deadline: June 8, 2018
