Editorial Director - Fiction

A prestigious independent London-based trade book publishing house has asked us exclusively to find a talented Editorial Director to join the team to drive the acquisitions of their new commercial fiction imprint.

The company is well-established and has a great reputation for publishing best-selling, award-winning books.

This is a unique opportunity to build a new list at a successful non-corporate publisher as you’ll be responsible for running a fledgeling commercial fiction imprint across a broad range of fiction genres.

We’re looking for an inspirational editor to commission new stories for UK & international marketplaces. Naturally, you’ll need to have good contacts with agents and a successful track record of acquiring commercial fiction. The role could appeal to an experienced commissioning editor or an editorial director looking for a brand new challenge.

If this rare new opportunity sounds of interest to you, for more details please send your CV and a short intro note to Danny Parnes – and please include your current salary, or you can call Danny on 07958 208817 for a chat in total confidence. Early enquiries will be prioritised.

Think Selection promotes the benefits of diversity in all of our activities and treats all employees and candidates equally regardless of their age, disability, gender identity, marital status, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation, caring responsibilities, socioeconomic background or union membership status.
