A rare and exciting opportunity presented itself with the dynamic and growing youth division of a large trade book publishing house, who asked us to find an editor to join them on a 6 month contract commencing as soon as possible.
Your role as an editor will be to acquire fiction books for children of different age groups and to manage ongoing projects.
We are looking for an experienced editorial candidate with a successful track record in acquiring children’s fiction books and working with high-profile authors.
You will be based at least part of each week from the company’s central London offices, so you will need to be within regular commuting distance.
The role is ideally 5 days a week full time, however the client will consider someone who is available 3 or 4 days a week.
A very competitive salary (which will depend on your experience) is offered to the successful candidate, as well as excellent benefits.
As a first step, in confidence, please send a message to Danny Parnes of Think Selection – [email protected] – or call Danny on 07958 208817.
Early inquiries may be prioritized, so if this unique role sounds potentially interesting, please contact us as soon as possible. Thanks a lot.
