The most EXCITING role has just landed at Inspired! We are looking for the most innovative, creative and boundary pushing Editorial Directors for a BRAND NEW non-fiction list!


This is one of those really rare opportunities to create a list from scratch but with the support of a large, successful publishing house behind you. Are you a trend spotter?

You will need to have experience in commissioning with agents and alone as well as strong negotiation skills. You must have also worked in multiple formats and have a good understanding of the digital arena.

So what are you waiting for? Send us your CV and we'll arrange a meeting to talk all about your experience and ideas for where you might take this list!
