Dear All,

It is with great sadness that we announce that Nik Samson, our editor, is leaving us. Nik has been with us for some time now and has been producing 13 issues of Biker and 4 issues of Trike every year. We will all be sorry to see him go, but on behalf of all the team at Jazz, we wish Nik the very best in his future endeavours and offer a big 'thank you' for all his hard work.

With that, we are on the look-out for a new editor to take over the reins.

If you are interested in such a position and fit the bill below, please get in touch.

Best

David


Editor — 100% Biker Magazine

This position is not for the faint of heart but you will get out of it what you put in.

You will need the greatest management skills, so you can motivate your team to be the most knowledgable and best writers/photographers in the world. You will also need to inspire them with your own desire to make the title the best custom bike magazine available.

You will produce 13 issues of the magazine a year, plus 4 issues of Trike Magazine along the way.

To be able to write exciting copy and have an eagle eye for making a story leap from the page
To know a great photograph when you see one.
To be punctual with your deadlines and respect that there are others in the team behind the scenes
To provide leadership, motivation and dedication to your magazine and team whilst also being able to let them be creative with their own talents
To be handy with a budget
A bottomless pit of patience to get the job delivered on time
The roles working hours will be 9am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday. You may also
be expected to work our events as and when needed, for this there will be
additional salary.

We pride ourselves on maintaining a relaxed working atmosphere and the
culture of a personal, small company, whilst also being able to offer some of the
benefits of a bigger organisation.

Nothing lasts forever, but I'm sure many of us will be sad to see Nik leave the post.. Getting all the facts and bringing it all together and producing an interesting mag seventeen times a year every year must be difficult enough, but added to that you also got some criticism from a number of different sources.
So Nik, whatever you have decided to do, my best wishes go with you.

John.

Thats Gotta be a Job for Chopper....:D..

Kind of busy right now. Robert Mugabi has just offered me the post of Tact & Diplomacy Advisor. Pay is very good and the fringe benefits are superb.

I get to evict non reflectives, round them up and abuse them. Free guns and ammo. Free safaris. Slaves galore and no questions asked. Couldn't be better.

This may seem like stating the obvious but you already have a good team who will keep the job going until you fill the post..So why not promote someone already on the team, move everyone up a step, where possible, and replace the bottom rung of the ladder with some new blood.

After all even if you do find a new editor who has already worked in the industry, he, or she, will need help from the existing staff until things start to run smoothly, promoting within the existing staff will increase enthusium and there will be no clash of personalities with a new junior that you might get with a new man/woman at the top.

Makes good sense. Problem with outsiders coming into a company is they have to put their own stamp on things. The mag doesn't need changing, so an internal applicant would maintain the present ethos.

That is what I'd do and experience teaches that this is the best way, after all your best slip in applicant may have been the editor of woman and home!!

The problem is, John, Nik doesn't have an editorial team. Like us, there are sales people and designers and admin, but the actual editorial team IS Nik, just as there's only two of us on BSH. So there is no-one internal to promote into that position.
