We're looking for a new voluntary co-editor to join Hilary, Michael, Emma and James in leading the Red Pepper project

February 1, 2013 · 2 min read

Sarah-Jayne Clifton has decided to make the February/March print issue of Red Pepper the last one which she leads on and will be stepping back from the collective of co-editors in a few months. It’s been great to have her on board, and her efforts, ideas and enthusiasm have been much appreciated. She’s not dropping out of Red Pepper completely, but we do need to recruit a replacement for her.

Editing Red Pepper is a hugely satisfying experience. We turn out a quality magazine on a shoestring budget and have built a strong team over the last few years which works together well. On the other hand, the role is unpaid, and not without stress from time to time. But if you’re committed to an open, radical and informed left, and have commissioning, organisational and writing skills, it may just suit you down to the ground.

Women and those from BME backgrounds are particularly encouraged to apply. Closing date is 14 March.
