Managing Editor - ICIS - Houston

Those leadership skills will be backed by expert knowledge of price reporting, the use of data to analyse markets, and the ability to oversee a live news operation.

  • Building a team on a foundation of diversity and ensuring the benefits are realized
  • Ensuring that all policies and methodologies are understood and followed and that compliance requirements are met
  • Contributing to the formulation of editorial strategy, policies and processes, including through participation in the wider editorial management team across ICIS
  • Coordinating with other functions to implement the global strategy and grow the business
  • Managing a substantial T&E budget through careful planning and monitoring of the benefits
