Our client is an educational publisher based in London. They are looking for a Senior Desk Editor for an 8 month Fixed term contract, to work on textbooks, workbooks and digital materials for primary and secondary International markets.
You will work closely and effectively with colleagues, authors and freelancers while taking responsibility for editorial quality and bringing together all the elements of a range of complex projects on time and to budget. You will need to be a proactive planner, quick to adapt to changing circumstances, without losing your eye for detail even under pressure.
Editorial project management experience, of educational books or digital resources, is essential (and the experience needs to be in the context of project editing/production editing, rather than commissioning/development editing). The team is based in the central London office, which will be re-opening in September; however, flexible working is fully supported.
