This freelance position (a minimum of 8 days a month at the AR’s London offices) would suit a sub-editor who has experience (3+ years) in architectural publications or in a related field, and is proficient in InDesign. With an eye for detail and consistency, the candidate should be able to cut and rework copy sensitively, lucidly and accurately, but also recognise when to exercise restraint. They should have the curiosity and resourcefulness to robustly interrogate text, enjoying the challenge of producing clear and compelling storytelling.

The position includes:

- Sub-editing and proofreading all written copy for the print publication
- Sub-editing any additional written copy on the website
- Sub-editing and proofreading written copy for occasional monographs, commercial content, and awards catalogues
- Fact-checking all text to ensure published content is correct and accurate
- Writing captivating headlines, standfirsts and captions for the print publication
- Working efficiently and independently to meet tight monthly production deadlines
- Liaising with the editorial team to ensure efficient running of the production cycle
- Responsibility for uploading and approving all pages for press

To make an application, please send a CV (on no more than two sides of A4), a concise portfolio of sub-edited written examples (of up to five pages and a maximum of 5MB) and a cover letter including why you think you would add value to the AR (in no more than 350 words).

Please send your application to by Monday 9 March
