Current vacancies


D J Murphy Publishers is looking for an Editor for its market-leading equestrian monthly magazine, Horse&Rider. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced editor, or a quality assistant editor, with a demonstrable track record of success. Previous experience on an equestrian title is not essential; what is crucial, though, is a real passion for horses and an in-depth knowledge of all things equestrian coupled with an acute understanding of the needs of horse riders and owners across the UK.

The ability to get the best out of a small editorial team is fundamental to the role, as is a commitment to supporting the magazine’s digital activity and associated brand extensions. On top of that, we’d like to see evidence of shrewd commercial awareness and an understanding of the interdependence of editorial, advertising, marketing and circulation. If you think you have the talent and experience to take on this exciting role, then send your CV and covering letter to
