Job Description

Progressive Media International is looking for an editor to source and deliver high-quality content for its respected portfolio of biannual B2B publications covering the energy, defence and transport sectors.

The role is based in central London and offers an excellent opportunity for someone looking to make their mark on a dynamic portfolio of titles.
