Editorial Director – Children’s Books

Our client, a highly respected London based adult and children’s trade book publishing house seeks an Editorial Director for their growing Children’s list.

This is a rare opportunity for a talented experienced Editorial person to make a great impact with a successful and non-corporate publisher as you’ll be the hands-on driving force for taking their children’s publishing in to new and exciting areas.

We’re looking for an experienced, motivated and commercially aware Editor with a track record of acquiring and working closely with both debut as well as established authors.

The company publishers successful fiction from YA to young readers so you’ll need to have contacts with agents and authors in the fiction genre, plus there is the opportunity to develop in new areas such as illustrated story books.
