[Job, closing soon] British Lung Foundation, Editorial Executive, ??26-29k, clos 11 Aug 2011

The attached job description shows up on my version of Word as if it’s encrypted (opening as read only). If that’s the case then the window where the document should show up above this text will probably say that it can’t display the file, but I’ve found that clicking on the ‘Download’ link just below the window should open the file normally.

I’ve just started to notice that I’ve posted a few British Lung Foundation jobs… searching Posterous for them is less straightforward than getting Google to do the work, so that’s what I use in this search: http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&biw=1024&bih=430&q=site%3Ascicommjobs.posterous.com+%22british+lung+foundation%22&oq=site%3Ascicommjobs.posterous.com+%22british+lung+foundation 

This one incorporates health / scicomm stuff but as part of a wider remit to communicate other things more generally in the magazine.

To be successful in this role you will need to be an excellent writer and editor, who is organised, assertive and flexible.
