Are you an enthusiastic and resourceful Editor who can hit the ground running 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 9-12 months 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.
