Many thanks for your help.
JUVE Verlag (Cologne) seeks English native speaker as Associate Editor.
Duties will be editing, translating, and organising the English language
publications as well as building up journalistic coverage of both
English-speaking and German domestic legal markets.
History of JUVE
JUVE will be four years old in September, now employs in total 25 people.
It is the leading publisher of business magazines and publications on the
German legal market. There is a huge industry in the UK and US devoted to
the field, but JUVE enjoys a near monopoly in Germany and Austria and has
therefore managed to make a name for itself and is regarded as being
primarily responsible for bringing transparency to the German market, which
is now the largest in Europe. JUVE has also become known for taking a case
to the BGH next year - and probably the Verfassungsgericht somewhere down
the line - to establish the legality of law firm rankings and reporting on
law firms in general.
Products and activities
JUVE produces one monthly magazine in German (about 50-60 sides per issue
read by all leading German law firms). A version of the same magazine now
appears quarterly in English in conjunction with 'The Lawyer', the UK's
leading legal newspaper. Germany has become the major priority for the
large US and UK firms, and there is accordingly a huge demand for
information in these jurisdictions about Germany. This the reason why our
huge annual handbook is also now distributed to 10,000 clients in the US.
These joint ventures with publications in London and New York are the main
reason we are seeking need highly talented English native speakers who have
As over the past two years year, we are looking for a graduate or post
graduate who has very strong German, is good at translation, and has an
interest in the world around them. We don't expect an MBA, but a general
interest and a nose for politics, business, and the economy would be a good
start. A legal background is in no way necessary. However, a sense of
humour is obligatory. The candidate should also be able to work
independently and be seeking to take over responsibility quickly. Pay is
competitive. Depending on qualifications it would be up to DM3500 a month.
We would of course help anybody to find accommodation.
We are based in Cologne. September will see us moving into a much larger
new office. A smaller office in Berlin and Munich in the medium-term is
also a likelihood.
