We’re looking for a Head of Non-Fiction and Activity to replace someone who’s relocating to the USA. You’ll combine shaping Nosy Crow’s recently-launched and very successful non-fiction and activity lists with hands-on editing of your own projects.
You’ll already have a strong background, and convincing track record, in editing full-colour books for children. You are as likely to have experience of children’s novelty and picture book publishing as of children’s non-fiction and activity books. You’ll be creative and dynamic with a strong aesthetic sense – you’ll be working closely with our design team – great organisational skills and a passion for accuracy. You’ll be a diplomat and capable ambassador, as you’ll be a key contact for our high-profile partners, including the National Trust and the British Museum, as well as with authors and illustrators (and their agents).
The books you work on will be truly distinctive: children’s non-fiction is changing and Nosy Crow is a leader of this change. They will be beautiful and innovative as well as informative and will, above all, engage the child reader.
This is a full-time role based in our offices near London Bridge. If you can’t work full-time in our offices, but can work a minimum of four days and would like to be considered, then it might still be worth applying. And if you’re not quite at Head of Non-Fiction and Activity level, but might be at more of a Senior Commissioning Editor level then, again, it might still be worth applying.
To apply, please send your CV with a covering letter to [email protected] by 14 May 2017.
