Senior Commissioning Editor, Children’s Trade Books (London)

An award-winning independent publisher seeks a Senior Children’s Commissioning Editor. This is a brand new role and an exciting opportunity to shape and grow a fiction and picture books list.

This relatively small list is growing fast, the publisher produces thought-provoking, original stories that expand the choices available to young readers.

Candidates will show they can run successful and profitable commissioning projects and have strong communication and negotiation skills. You will need good understanding and experience in the YA/children’s fiction book market and be able to bring out the best in your authors.

We welcome enquiries from emerging children’s editors to the more experienced commissioning editor level. Ideally you need to have good contacts with agents and some authors. 

The salary range is very attractive and will depend on the experience you bring. You’ll be based in Central London very close to all the main public transport hubs.
