We’re looking for a creative, committed, talented and flexible Senior Picture Book Editor. Working closely with the Head of Picture Books and our excellent design team, you will be commissioning and project managing your own titles, as well as working with authors and illustrators that Nosy Crow is already proud to publish. You’ll be passionate about children’s books, with a good understanding of both the UK and international markets, and you’ll be committed to making high-quality, commercial titles that stand out from the crowd and have strong child-appeal.
At Nosy Crow, we are very proud of our editorial team and the quality of our books. We aim to make Nosy Crow an environment where editors truly thrive, where they can do their best work, where they are listened to, and where they feel part of the whole company and of our decision-making.
We want someone who can spot a text with potential at a hundred paces and then turn it into a GREAT text. We hope that you’re not afraid of a bit of writing – a creative spark would be great! – and are bursting with ideas for new titles. As this is a Senior Editor position, we also expect that you will have experience of working with agents together with excellent author care skills. This job involves finding new talent, as well as working with experienced authors and artists; commissioning; and relationship management as well as making sure that words and pictures are combined on the page as meaningfully and beautifully as possible.
This is a full-time role, but, for the right candidate, we can be flexible. We’d want you to be in our office near London Bridge for at least three days per week.
For this role:
Candidates must have the right to live and work in the UK.
The closing date for application is 1 July at midnight.
