Could you be a People Management guest editor?

29 Mar 2019 By PM Editorial

Your chance to get involved behind the scenes at the magazine

If you’ve always wanted to read about a particular topic in People Management magazine – or, perhaps, fancied yourself as a would-be editor – you won’t want to miss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get involved in HR’s leading title.

The June issue of the magazine is all about our readers – and we’re recruiting a crack squad of people professionals to help shape what goes into the pages. 

You’ll take a hands-on role in making decisions about articles, interviewing subjects and choosing layouts, working alongside members of the People Management editorial team.

It means we’ll be looking to recruit a group of people professionals with a diverse range of skills and specialisms to form a guest editorial team.

Participants will have the opportunity to take on one of a diverse range of opportunities that form regular parts of the editorial cycle behind the scenes at PM, including: 

  • Spending time with the People Management editorial team, working together to come up with ideas for articles
  • Taking part in a roundtable covering some of the most important issues for the HR profession today 
  • Attending interviews alongside members of the editorial team 
  • Writing advisory columns for People Management’s back pages, including our popular ‘Can HR Solve’ feature
  • Contributing to the June episode of That HR Podcast

Some tasks, such as the editorial roundtable, will involve travelling to PM headquarters in west London, but others can take place remotely or in other parts of the country. 

“This is a great opportunity to help us decide what sort of content is really relevant to an HR and L&D audience and play a part in making it a reality,” says People Management editor Robert Jeffery. “We’re looking for a really diverse bunch of people who will challenge us and bring their knowledge and experience to the process. And hopefully it should be great fun too.”

To apply, send an email to with ‘Guest editor’ in the subject line. 

Please include:

  • A brief description of yourself and your background in HR/L&D
  • Why you would like to be a People Management guest editor 
  • A choice of what would interest you most: conducting an interview, offering advice to your fellow readers, writing a book review, taking part in a round table or getting involved in the editorial process
  • Your availability during May and June
  • The one person you would love to interview for a People Management article
