Development Editor - Contract 12 months

Are you an enthusiastic and resourceful Editor who can hit the ground running and work with existing projects, seeing them through to publication on time and to budget?

We have a super new opening for a Development Editor to join a fast-paced editorial team on a 12 month  maternity cover.  This role will contribute to the development of both print and digital higher education products. The Development Editor will work on a range of products across Business disciplines, including Economics, Management, Accounting and Finance.

The Development Editor will project manage and work with authors to produce manuscripts, digital products and solutions, to go into production and help develop future products.  You will ensure that print and digital offerings correspond with the appropriate educational standards/syllabi and target offerings at specific courses, learning and assessment needs and markets.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone who is looking to develop their career in publishing and who wants to shape innovative products for use across the EMEA region.

The successful person will have some proven experience in an editorial role, preferably from a Higher Education, Academic or Professional publishing editorial background, including developing digital products, although we will consider candidates with strong editorial skills outside of this area as long as you possess good project management skills which include working with authors and contributors.  You will be highly organised and able to work in a fast-paced environment; possess solid organisation and IT skills.
