We have an opportunity to join a leading ELT publisher as Commissioning Editor to work on their Ministry of Education publishing projects. This role offers a competitive salary and hybrid working (with candidates based in the London vicinity to visit the office 3 days per week, and flexibility for those based elsewhere).
As ELT Commissioning Editor for the company's Ministry projects you will work to develop pedagogically sound ELT learning materials (print and digital) that meet Ministry requirements, ensuring projects are delivered to schedule and to budget. Key responsibilities include:
- Work with authors and freelance editors to develop high-quality print, audio and digital learning materials.

The successful Commissioning Editor will have experience in ELT publishing, from having previously developed print and digital educational material. As well as the ability to build and manage successful relationships, the Commissioning Editor will have excellent attention to detail and strong project management skills. Experience of producing ELT learning materials for the Middle Eastern market would be beneficial but by no means essential, this role could suit someone with solid ELT publishing experience gained in any market. A recognised ELT qualification would also be useful. To find out more get in touch ASAP!
