Josh Harvey
Publishing Manager

Our client is seeking first-class individuals with a passion for publishing & business. The role is similar to that of a movie producer: get the script, finance it by pitching investors and hand-pick the team that is going to create it. Sounds like you?

Our client offers a basic salary of £30,000 first year and a realistic OTE of £51,000 – top performers higher. Previous sales experience in the media industry is not a pre-requisite, but you need to be a first-class operator in whatever tasks and challenges you undertake.

  • Managing research
  • Editorial commissioning, production and sales on each of these five publications being produced for The Times/Sunday Times/The Week
