We believe that a diverse workforce strengthens our creativity and delivers the best commercial performance.  We are, therefore, seeking applications from high quality people, whose backgrounds, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our company.

We have an exciting opportunity for a talented Editor to join our team working on DEAN, an imprint that specialises in customer publishing.
