Dear Sir or Madam,
With five years' experience in the luxury lifestyle magazine industry under my belt, I'm now on the hunt for a new editorial position and would relish the opportunity to be part of a publication which produces such thriving, engaging and absorbing content. I believe that my passion for literature and linguistics - coupled with my drive, talent and inquisitive nature - would make me an ideal addition to your editorial team.
I have worked on The Cheshire Magazine - a luxury lifestyle publication with a focus on creating quality, thought-provoking, substantial content - for the past four years. At the age of 25, and having been with Runwild Media Group for less than a year, the management team tasked me with launching this completely new publication for the north west of England. Since then, I have enjoyed the opportunity to nurture and develop this title into the successful, respected magazine it is today. In addition, I was responsible for launching, managing and populating the magazine's digital platform (thecheshiremagazine) and as such have an excellent grasp of the technical and analytical skills necessary for such a role.
I was recently made redundant from this position - due to the downsizing which has become so unavoidably endemic in the industry of late - but had been conscious for some time that the role had ceased to challenge my abilities to their full potential. I am now searching for a place at a dynamic publication to which I can bring a unique perspective and voice.
Please find my CV attached, and do get in touch if you would be interested in discussing things further.
