Vacancy: Deputy editor, Future Healthcare Journal

We are seeking a deputy editor for the Future Healthcare Journal at an exciting time in its development as it consolidates and expands its reach and influence across the health sector.

The new deputy editor will help the editor-in-chief to shape the journal’s future editorial strategy, commission and review articles, and advise on the development of the journal.

The current editor-in-chief will demit in early 2019 and we would expect that the deputy editor will apply for this role; they should therefore have a personal profile commensurate with this level of post (consultant level in the NHS, or equivalent for other healthcare professions, with strong leadership abilities).

To apply, please submit a CV and covering letter to FHJ@rcplondon.ac.uk by 3 April 2018.
