Editorial Director – Trade books

Are you an enterprising commissioning editor who’d relish the opportunity to join a brand new trade fiction and non-fiction publishing company?

We’re looking for an Editorial Director to lead the acquisition programme for a highly entrepreneurial book publishing start up team.

Working closely with the Managing Director, you’ll drive the new title acquisitions across a broad range of commercial fiction and narrative non-fiction.

You’ll also be in charge of the production function hence we’re looking for a hands-on Editor who’ll commission and take the book right up to delivery.

We’d welcome enquiries from talented editors with varying degrees of experience, although you’ll need to have already commenced your book commissioning career and have contacts in the trade fiction or narrative non-fiction space and be full of ideas about how to shape a new list.

This is a full time remote-based role although you’ll need to work closely with, and meet with colleagues and contributors in the UK hence it will suit someone based in the UK.

If this unique career opportunity sound possibly of interest, in confidence please send your CV, salary expectations and a short note telling us what you love to commission, to Danny Parnes – danny@thinkselection.com – or call Danny on 07958 208817 and tell us a little about yourself.

Early enquiries will be prioritised.

How to Apply

If this unique role sounds potentially of interest to you, in the first instance please send your CV and a short intro note to Danny Parnes
