Jobs at Yale

Acquisitions Editor

We are looking for an ambitious commissioning editor to build a new list and carry out Yale’s aggressive plans for growth.

You will be responsible for growing our Economics list and for developing our well established Current Affairs publishing for an intelligent general readership. Keeping abreast of global developments in these areas, you will identify talented authors and suitable subject areas and work with authors to develop proposals. This will involve developing good working relationships with members of the academic community as well as with literary agents and suitable foreign publishers. The development of a network of journalists, policy makers and think tank professionals will be important. Close liaison with colleagues in editorial, sales and publicity to ensure acquisition of titles best suited to the company’s objectives and strengths is essential.

The successful candidate will have a track record of successful acquisition in trade and academic non-fiction, particularly in Economics and Business.

Please send your CV and a statement of suitability (including availability, notice period details and current salary) to Robert Owen (HR Manager): robert.owen@yaleup.co.uk

Closing date: 14 Apr 2014
