About Canelo

At Canelo we are building a new kind of publisher. With a fresh approach and a great deal for authors, we take the most exciting stories to the widest possible audience.

Canelo has made its mark publishing numerous bestselling ebooks. We’ve seen phenomenal sales growth this year but are looking to do so much more. We combine a focused and entrepreneurial attitude with a profound love of books.

If you’re ambitious, digitally savvy and want to make an impact, join us and help shape our publishing future.

About the Role

Canelo’s reissue publishing has been critical to our success, and we want someone who can drive this key area forward. We are especially (but not exclusively) looking to grow reissues in the fields of saga, action thriller and adventure.

You will have responsibility for bringing these books to market, from editorial management through to overseeing covers and creative copy. You will be liaising with authors, agents, external editors and designers, and thinking about how to craft marketing messages.

In addition you will be working with the Editorial and Management team on a flourishing frontlist programme. We have a stable of talented authors that require day-to-day input to ensure we meet our critical path and can publish a wide range of books to the highest standard.

You will have excellent knowledge of and passion for commercial and genre fiction. Ideally you have significant experience of all aspects of the editorial process, from contracts to final proofs. You will be organised, proactive and hungry for success.

As a fast-developing new company we hope Canelo is an exciting and welcoming place to work that provides colleagues with ample room to grow. There is flexibility on the precise title and scope of this role for the right candidate. The roll is full time and our office is in central London. 

If you have any questions, or would like to apply please write with a covering letter and CV to michael@canelo.co.
