Junior Editor, Octopus Publishing Group
Who we are and what we do
Monoray is an exciting new Hachette imprint, set up by a successful and experienced Publisher with a passion for non-fiction. Monoray aims to give voice to a wide range of authors whose life-experience means they have something to say. Our books are high-quality, but always accessible; well-targeted and commercial, but always authentic.
What you’ll be doing
You will be a key member of the small team, chiefly providing essential editorial support for the list. You’ll write best-in-class copy, work with designers on great artwork, and ensure we have top quality selling material for our books. In addition, you will find time to generate new ideas for new books and be keen to set out on the path of developing your own commissioning talents.
Who we’re looking for
You are bright and upbeat, have a passion for non-fiction publishing and love coming up with ideas. You’ll have proven editorial and project managing experience and you will be keen to learn your trade and prove yourself a top class editor.
What we offer
Our staff are our greatest asset and our benefits reflect this. In addition to 25 days annual leave days per year + bank holidays, we have an extensive list of benefits that include: a wide-ranging training library, development programmes including mentoring, Cycle to Work vouchers, Private Medical Insurance, eye care vouchers, up to 70% off book purchases, a charity book shelf, 2 volunteer days per year to use at your charity of choice, many employee networks to join, delicious subsidized canteen food, summer hours (finishing at 1pm on Fridays during the summer months!), season ticket loans, rent deposit loans, generous pension schemes and much more!
Hachette employs people on the basis of their abilities. We aim to attract and develop talent from a base as broad as the world of readers we want to reach, with a wide and representative range of age, faith, disability, race, gender, sexuality and socio-economic, regional and cultural backgrounds.
