My work as an editor and web editor for BIBA Medical involves everything from the day-to-day management of the six BIBA Publishing medical news websites, to the production of a quarterly specialist newspaper, Spinal News International.
Working with physicians, engineers and researchers, I regularly produce content from short news pieces to long-form features on everything from cutting-edge medical research to politics, conflict and the world of sports and entertainment.
I write, edit, sub-edit and upload content for all six websites, finding the best stories and images for inclusion in each site’s bi-weekly newsletter.
During my time as editor, I have consistently grown Spinal News International‘s social media and web following. Our e-newsletter subscription base has grown from 4,000 to 16,000 during my tenure.
I led the 2015 re-launch of the Spinal News International brand, working closely with our designer, sales people and head of Publishing to create the perfect logo, layout and website design for a fresher, cleaner publication.
Working closely with our digital marketing manager, I also helped to re-launch the other five websites on a modern, responsive platform.
For Spinal News International, I work closely with the business development team to secure and produce consumer-focused commercial content for our advertising clients.
Specialist medical conferences across the world provide the opportunity to gather news, spot trends, interview key attendees and liaise with current and potential advertising clients.
As part of a team of editors, I have also had the chance to provide daily in-depth news coverage for specialist conferences at home and abroad, as well as the opportunity to edit and sub-edit academic articles for publication in conference books.
