Associate Editors – Construction Group and Fire Group

At Annex, we believe that good things happen when like-minded people come together to create and connect. This belief is at the heart of the work we do. That means finding people who like to work hard and have fun doing it—the kind of people who get excited by a new challenge, but who always find time for a good laugh.

Annex is a 100% Employee-Management Partnership and our employees share in the ownership and success of the company. We prioritize the well-being of our employees. Everyone enjoys flexible working hours, a comprehensive benefits package, progressive vacation entitlement, additional paid days off throughout the year, opportunities for continuing education, profit sharing, and all the necessary tools to excel in your role. Our modern offices offer a hybrid schedule of two common days in-office (Tuesdays & Wednesdays) and three days remote, or wherever in the industry you happen to be that day. Plus, you’ll love our 35-hour workweek, which ends at 1:30 pm on Fridays.
For an associate editor, we’re looking for a self-starter who wants to learn but also accepts responsibility for their own outcomes. Results oriented and team focused, the ideal candidate loves to create and tune content across all mediums.

If this sounds like what you’ve been searching for, we currently have two opportunities for an associate editor to join Annex – one in our construction group (Canadian Contractor, Canadian Rental Service and Glass Canada) and one in our fire group (Canadian Firefighter and Fire Fighting in Canada). In both roles, you will have the chance to create content across a few dynamic brands. It’s a chance to grow, with significant responsibility and autonomy combined with the help of a dedicated mentor and top-notch support teams.

  • Pitch, create, and manage first-rate content in a deadline-driven environment.
  • Participate in all aspects of putting a magazine together from concept and story pitching to feature writing and production.
  • Creatively use our various digital products including websites, e-newsletters, social media, video, webinars, podcasts and more to reach and engage our audience wherever they are.
  • Support the editor by working with a wide range of contributors, editing copy from industry experts and ensuring quality and timeliness of online content.
  • Help develop and launch new products in all media to benefit the brands’ loyal and expanding audience.
  • Create content and marketing around existing and new workshops, conferences and events (both live and virtual).
  • Attend industry events to better connect with your market and audience.
  • Bring your knowledge and ideas to the table to drive innovation in our channels and in the industries we serve.
  • Complete a detailed training grid to prepare you for a full editorial role.

What the ideal Annex candidate looks like:

  • You have a post secondary degree in journalism, communications or a related field.
  • Comfort and/or experience with all forms of media communication, including but not limited to print, digital (websites and e-newsletters), video and social media.
  • Ability to work together to achieve the best results and display a can do/will do attitude.
  • Great organizational abilities, as well as excellent computer skills.
  • Goes beyond to deliver the unexpected.
  • Strong work ethic and willingness to adapt in a constantly evolving media business.
  • Can take instruction, but doesn’t need to be told what to do.
  • Receptive to feedback and adept at integrating it into learning.
  • Capable of working remotely from a home office as well as in one of our office locations as required.
  • A valid driver’s license and enthusiasm for limited travel within and outside of Canada.

What we offer:

In addition to what we’ve mentioned above, you’ll get the chance to work with a media group that knows the business inside and out. You’ll also earn your stripes working with experienced editors who know the business inside and out. You will appreciate the autonomy to get the job done, as well as the support and encouragement to launch your best ideas. At Annex, we believe our values and culture are the foundation to our success.
