Literary Agent

Are you obsessed with placing your authors with the very best publishers where you know they will thrive?

We have an amazing opportunity for a Literary Agent to join a highly successful Literary agency based in Central London. We are looking for someone who can show a strong track record in working successfully with authors. Someone who can demonstrate that they can find new and existing voices, nurture them and show how they can successfully package their books into a commercially successful proposition to editors across the publishing industry.

If you are commissioning at the moment, this could be an amazing time to look at a different career trajectory with those skills you already have! You will be responsible for your own list and given a lot of support and guidance but ultimately also a lot of freedom to develop the list you are passionate about!

Our client is hugely passionate about Diversity & Inclusion not just within their business but also in the talent they work with. As such their current list of authors should be celebrated for the diversity across it!

If you are looking for that next step in your career please apply by sending your CV via the link below!

For a full description of the role, please send your CV with a brief paragraph outlining your relevant skills.

Closing Date: Early applications may be prioritised.
