(Senior) Commissioning Editor, Ebury
Senior Commissioning Editor / Commissioning Editor
Are you always on the hunt for the best new restaurant? Did you spot veganism before anyone else? If you are immersed in all things culture and lifestyle, we may have the perfect role for you.
Ebury is the UK’s largest dedicated non-fiction publisher. This is a time of growth for our award-winning illustrated list.
We are the home of Yotam Ottolenghi, Mary Berry, Rick Stein and Johanna Batsford. From best-selling food and drink to standout gift, mindfulness and wellbeing, our Ebury Press and POP Press books are united by unique voices and high-quality content, which is beautifully communicated through eye-catching design.
You’ll have your finger on the pulse, and will always be thinking, ‘is there a book in that?’ And if there is, you’ll be able to shape that concept into a proposal, know which audience you’re going to sell it to and how to package it to the highest-possible standard.
This role will suit someone with a strong background in commissioning four-colour and mono food and drink, diet and health, lifestyle and gift titles. You’ll have a genuine passion for this area, and will be brimming with ideas on what’s going to be the next genre to pop up, or the new food talent to break through and how you’d package the book as a potential bestseller.
