JOB VACANCY

Technical Editor

Education changes lives forever. It broadens horizons, breaks down barriers, and fires imaginations. Like the University of Oxford, of which we are a part, we are committed to uncompromising standards, freedom of expression, and the enrichment of lives through education. This is our motivation, our purpose, and our mission. It is why 100% of the money we make is reinvested into education and research. It is why all 6,000 of us in 52 countries care deeply about reaching more people in more places, with world-class learning and research materials and services.

The Education Division provides books and resources across Primary, Secondary, Trade and Children's markets, both for the UK and for customers around the world. We are passionately committed to our mission to educate and inspire.

The STEM Education Team at OUP publishes a wide range of successful and respected courses for ages 5 to 18, working with teachers, educational partners, and industry experts to ensure maximum impact on educational outcomes. MyMaths is our market-leading digital maths platform – it provides interactive digital content to support maths learning in class and at home.

About the Role

This is an exciting opportunity to join the UK STEM team as a Technical Editor, specifically to support MyMaths. The successful candidate will develop technical editorial skills alongside mathematics editorial skills and support delivery of high-value, high-quality digital content.

You will be responsible for supporting the creation of new content, fixing and updating existing content and supporting customer queries. You will work with senior editors as you develop your skills and liaise with a wide-range of internal stakeholders across a range of functions.

  • a willingness to learn new skills and processes, including how to manipulate code (such as JavaScript and XML)

  • an inquisitive, problem-solving mind-set

The following are also desirable, but not essential:

  • experience of teaching or tutoring Maths
  • some experience of using coding languages

Benefits

We care about work/life balance here at OUP. With this in mind, we offer 25 days’ holiday that rises with service, plus bank holidays and Christmas closure (3-days) and a 35-hour working week. We are open to discussing flexibility in respect of working hours and the use of technology to support remote working, dependent on role.
