Senior Commissioning Editor / Editorial Director – Commercial Fiction

A prestigious independent London-based trade book publishing house has asked us exclusively to find a talented Senior Commissioning Editor or Editorial Director to join the team to drive the acquisitions of their Commercial Fiction imprint.

The company is well-established and has a great reputation for publishing best-selling award-winning books.

You’ll be responsible for running an upmarket fledgeling commercial fiction imprint hence this is a unique opportunity to make your mark and build a list at a successful non-corporate publishing house.

We’re looking for an inspirational editor to commission new stories for UK & international marketplaces. Naturally you’ll need to have good contacts with agents and a successful track record of commissioning commercial fiction.

The role could appeal to an editor at the early stages of their acquisitions career or someone more experienced, and is potentially a full-time position, but our client would consider a part-time applicant in an Editor-at-Large role too.

If this rare new opportunity sounds of interest to you, for more details please send your CV and a short intro note to Danny Parnes – and please include your current salary, or you can call Danny on 07958 208817 for a chat in total confidence. Thanks.
