Job Description for Sr. Editor

Whether in journalism, publishing, or other online content creation, a message must be clear, correct, and properly formatted to be effective. Editors ensure this happens, and the senior editor oversees a team of editors to make sure the team's work conforms to standard. To do this, senior editors proofread submitted copy and ensure that the text is readable and accurate throughout the piece; they also make sure to spot any spelling or grammar errors that junior editors may have missed. In addition, the senior editor directs subordinate editors so that they all work effectively and the final copy exhibits a consistently high level of quality.
