Informa is a leading academic publishing, business intelligence, knowledge and events business, creating unique content and connectivity for customers all over the world. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a member of the FTSE 100.
Taylor & Francis Group produces high quality, peer reviewed books and journals. We produce unique, trusted content by expert authors, spreading knowledge and promoting discovery globally. We aim to broaden thinking and advance understanding, providing academics and professionals with a platform to share ideas and realise their individual potential.
We have an exciting opportunity for a Development Editor to join our global team! You will be responsible for the commercially effective development of a collection – or portfolio – of journals in Statistics and associated fields.
We are extremely flexible with the experience level needed for this role. If you’ve been an editorial assistant or in a similar position within publishing (or even outside of it!) and are ready to take the next step in your career, this is a great opportunity to consider. Equally, if you have more experience we’d be happy to consider you and ensure you’re working at a level of role appropriate for your skillset. Having publishing experience is an added bonus, but if you can find a way to show us how your skills can translate into this role, we’d be excited to review your application.
Characteristics we’re looking for include being a self-starter who is eager and ambitious to embrace new opportunities that may be outside the traditional job description. A sense of autonomy is a huge plus since this team is international and the manager is UK-based. While you’ll have interactions and regular meetings with international colleagues and editors, there will be times you'll have to work independently.
What you’ll be doing:
At Taylor & Francis we care about our colleagues, promoting work-life balance, wellbeing and flexible working. We believe that the skills and experience you bring to Taylor & Francis are invaluable. We want you to have the opportunity to develop your abilities, and to innovate and develop in areas which you are passionate about.
We know that sometimes the 'perfect candidate' doesn't exist, and that people can be put off applying for a job if they don't fit all the requirements. If you're excited about working for us and have most of the skills or experience we're looking for, please go ahead and apply. You could be just what we need! We believe strongly in the value of diversity and creating supportive, inclusive environments where our colleagues can succeed. As such, Informa is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.
