Hoxton Mini Press is a young independent publisher based in East London. Our goal is to make art books more affordable and accessible (whilst still making them beautiful enough that you'll pass them down to your grandchildren). In the past five years we have received critical acclaim from the likes of Martin Parr, Time Magazine, The Guardian and have won multiple awards for both design and publishing.
We are looking for a passionate Editorial Manager who is both hyper-organised and utterly in love with the written word. You will have at least two years of experience in a similar position (please don't apply if you don't), have a taste for photography and fine publishing and understand how difficult and important it is to communicate to a modern audience.
You will be in charge of overseeing all the text that goes into our books, on our website, through our press and social media channels. This does not mean you will be writing the final text in the books, but you'll be managing any external writer and editors, feeding back on tone as well copyediting and proofing final texts. We will, however, need you to write texts for our website, press releases, AIs and for social media.
Our focus is on quality, so you'll have excellent attention to detail and a calm, positive and flexible work ethic - even when under pressure. We are a small company (of only 5) so the ability to work off your own initiative is a must, but equally you should have a desire to be a part of a growing team and be happy to be involved in all aspects of the publishing process. A small team has good and bad qualities. Almost everything we do is shared. But sometimes that includes the frustration of trying to fix the printer.
Due to the volume of applicants we may only be able to contact those that have been successful. If you have not heard by 19th October, you have probably been unsuccessful on this occasion.
