WES is currently in its 30th successful year and is a highly respected journal with an international profile. The journal is very strongly grounded in the sociological tradition, drawing upon adjacent disciplines to make an original contribution to issues and debates in the sociology of work and employment in all countries.  It receives approximately 400 submissions a year, has an Impact Factor of 2.153 and is ranked 4 in the Chartered Association of Business Schools Academic Journal Guide.

The BSA is looking for a strong, diverse team of Editors to shape and sustain the journal’s leading position in the field.  We particularly welcome expressions of interest from individuals, multi-institutional teams and those in sociology departments in partnership with business schools. Applicants must be based in the UK.

Individuals or teams who wish register an Expression of Interest should complete a short proforma application, accompanied by a 2-page CV, which will be considered by the Recruitment Committee.
