A magazine features editor is responsible for the content and quality of their publication and ensures that stories are engaging and informative.
Most opportunities are in large publishing companies that produce a wide range of titles. These include weekly and monthly consumer or lifestyle titles, which are commonly referred to as 'glossy' magazines.
However, features editors are also employed by trade magazines, specialist publishers, online media and in-house magazines.
Magazine features editors do not always need specialist knowledge of the subject they cover, unless the content is highly technical, although an interest in the subject is usually expected.
