Royal Academy Enterprises, Publications
The Royal Academy of Arts (RA) is one of the UK’s foremost arts institutions, best known for its programme of world-class exhibitions including The Real Van Gogh, Anish Kapoor and David Hockney RA: A Bigger Picture. Our vision is to be a clear, strong voice for art and artists. The RA’s public programme promotes the creation, study and enjoyment of art to a wide range of audiences through exhibitions, education and debate.
Published quarterly, the RA Magazine is the UK’s leading arts magazine with a circulation in excess of 100,000 and acts as a communication medium for the RA Friends, keeping them abreast of the RA’s diverse activities and exhibition programme. The Magazine’s recent re-design, reflecting the new visual brand identity of the RA, has been warmly received by RA Friends, other readers and advertisers. RA Magazine is developing its digital presence with a regular blog post, a growing resource of digital content and the use of visual recognition (VR) technology to enhance readers’ experience. Advertising forms a crucial part of the RA Magazine; revenues from advertising are proving resilient despite the financial environment.
The Editor will develop new ideas for features, both commission and write articles and be responsible for keeping both the printed magazine and its digital presence developing and active.
The Publications team is looking for an experienced magazine Editor to steer the quarterly publication. The successful candidate will have at least 5 years’ experience as a magazine or section editor and will possess exceptional writing skills, strong commercial acumen and excellent organisational skills. They will be an experienced journalist with a demonstrable interest in the visual arts. Approachable and friendly, they will be able to forge strong working relationships with colleagues, readers and external contacts.
