    Editorial Account Manager

    Job Type: Permanent, full-time

    Location: UK-based (Hybrid - London office OR remote)

    Salary: £28,000 - £34,000, depending on experience

    Description:

    The Editorial Account Manager plays a critical role in ensuring that all publishing activity on the Ubiquity platform develops in a positive manner. This role involves the management of Ubiquity Press publications as well as helping to manage partner presses, as part of the Ubiquity Partner Network (UPN).

    The role will have a book focus, with responsibility including the management of book workflows and editorial processing, from proposals through peer review, to production. The role will also include assisting the UPN more widely in growing their publication platforms, via supporting external Press Managers and ensuring a smooth interoperation with the Ubiquity team. Although book project management will play a key role, interaction with journal platforms, journal development and engagement with editorial teams will be essential to success.

    The Editorial Account Manager will be expected to deliver a high-quality service as each publication platform grows, ensuring a streamlined flow of articles/books through peer review, maintaining quality standards, promoting published content and developing editorial policy. The Editorial Account Manager is the central point of contact throughout the press, journal and book workflow, from acquisition through peer-review until publication and post-publication review. Contact with external Press Managers, journal editors, authors and site users will be frequent. Customer service and project management will play a large part of the role, making communication, organisation and time management essential attributes.
