Today’s the last day to apply for jobs at Nosy Crow

jobs in publishing

We’re currently looking for four people to join the Nosy Crow team – an Editorial Assistant, an Assistant Editor, a Production Executive, and a Head of Non-Fiction and Activity – and today’s the closing date for applications for each of these fantastic jobs.

We’re looking for a Head of Non-Fiction and Activity.

Nosy Crow has won exclusive children’s publishing partnerships with National Trust and the British Museum and we have non-fiction plans beyond those exciting partnerships too.

You’ll be combining shaping Nosy Crow’s nascent non-fiction list with hands-on editing of your own projects. You’ll already have a strong background, and convincing track record, in editing full-colour non-fiction for children and you may have experience of activity, novelty and picture book publishing too. 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 know what authors and illustrators to go to for different projects, and may well have worked with them in the past. You’ll be a diplomat and capable ambassador, as you’ll be a key contact for our high-profile partners as well as with the authors and illustrators (and their agents) who will work on the books.

The books you work on will be distinctive, beautiful and informative and will, above all, engage the child reader.

This is a full-time role based in our offices in Borough. If you can’t work full-time, but 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 30 October 2015.

We’re looking for an Assistant Editor (fiction).

Working on Nosy Crow’s growing fiction list, you’ll be working with the Head of Fiction and the Fiction Commissioning Editor, desk editing titles from final manuscript to finished book; writing copy from blogposts to blurbs; liaising with freelancers; and providing administrative support. You’ll have a passion for fiction for children aged between 5 and 12, will be widely read in this area and have a good sense of the current market. You’ll need excellent copy-editing, proofreading and organisational skills, a great eye for detail and superlative communication skills both in writing and face-to-face. InDesign skills would be an advantage. You’ll probably have at least a year’s experience of working in a children’s fiction editorial department. This is a full-time role based in our offices in Borough.

To apply, please send your CV with a covering letter to [email protected] by 30 October 2015.

We’re looking for an Editorial Assistant (illustrated books).

Working across the whole of Nosy Crow’s illustrated publishing programme (board books, picture books, activity books and non-fiction), you’ll be providing admin support for the editorial team, writing copy, liaising with authors, illustrators and their agents and generally doing whatever needs doing. You’ll be organised and creative, with a passion for illustrated children’s books. You’ll be able to spell and punctuate perfectly, and do basic arithmetic (we’ll be checking!). You’ll be a good team player, quick on the uptake and able to prioritise multiple and sometimes conflicting demands. Basic InDesign skills would be an advantage. Ideally, you’ll already have some experience of children’s full-colour illustrated editorial work. This is a full-time role based in our offices in Borough.

To apply, please send your CV with a covering letter to [email protected] by 30 October 2015.

We’re looking for a Production Executive.

Working across the whole of Nosy Crow’s illustrated publishing programme (board books, picture books, activity books and non-fiction), you’ll be working closely with the Head of Operations, liaising with printers and print-brokers to ensure that Nosy Crow’s illustrated books are delivered looking great, on budget and on time. You’ll be organised, numerate (we’ll be checking) with a great eye for detail and an ability to communicate effectively in writing and face-to-face. You’ll enjoy working collaboratively, and solving the problems that the conflicting demands of editors, designers, sales people and printers create! You’re likely to have at least two years’ experience of working in a full-colour production department working on children’s books. This is a full-time role based in our offices in Borough.

To apply, please send your CV with a covering letter to [email protected] by 30 October 2015.
