Editorial Director (Children’s Books)

Our client, a highly respected London based adult and children’s trade book publishing company seeks an Editorial Director for their growing Children’s list.

This is a rare opportunity for a talented experienced editorial person to make a great impact with a successful independent and non-corporate publisher as you’ll be the hands-on driving force to take their children’s publishing in to new and exciting areas.

We’re looking for someone experienced, motivated and commercially aware with a track record of acquiring and working closely with both debut as well as established authors.

The company publishers successful fiction from YA to young readers so you’ll need to have contacts with agents and authors in the fiction genre, plus there is the opportunity to develop in new areas such as illustrated story books.

A very good salary is on offer (depending on the experience you bring). If this role sounds like it could be of interest to you, then in the first instance, in confidence, please send a short intro note with your CV and your current salary to Danny Parnes –
