  • Act as the point of escalation for more complex queries, working directly with journal editors to resolve issues and provide best practice guidance and training as necessary
  • Support journal Editorial teams with title development
  • Monitor copyflow and liaise with internal and external stakeholders to obtain copy for publication to agreed schedules
  • Use your expert knowledge to investigate rights issues, handle authorship disputes, and respond to requests for post-publication corrections
  • Manage and implement strategic changes across a portfolio of titles in partnership with our Publishing teams

You’ll need to have:

  • Experience of managing the production process for a journals portfolio
  • Experience of working with remote teams and third-party suppliers
  • Excellent analytical, organisation, and problem-solving skills

What kind of team you will be joining:

It’s a dynamic and varied role, offering lots of opportunities to expand your skills. As well as that, being part of this team means being part of something special. Things are always busy, but you're always supported, and people will always pitch in and help.

You’ll receive a wide range of benefits, such as flexible working, up to 20% performance bonus, 6% pension contribution, a generous holiday allowance, life assurance and various benefits aimed at supporting your wellbeing and work-life balance.

We all know perfection is a myth, and life would be boring if we were all the same - that’s why individuality is one of our core values. So don’t scroll on by if you’re thinking you’re not an exact match. We value passion, engagement, and a new approach as much as skills and experience, so if you’re excited about working for Emerald, and have most of the key requirements, we’d love you to apply. We could be the perfect match!
