Momentum, the digital-first publishing imprint of Pan Macmillan Australia, currently has an opening for an editor to join the Sydney office.
This is a busy and varied role and will require someone who can be both a team player and work independently when the need arises. Primary responsibilities are project editing our titles to meet demanding deadlines and managing the editorial needs of our wonderful stable of authors. Workload also includes working with digital typesetting software, so an understanding of ebook files (including fundamentals of CSS and HTML) is a plus. Knowledge of Australian and US spelling and style and experience with MS Word, Adobe Acrobat and Filemaker Pro are also desirable.
The successful applicant should have an interest in genre fiction, particularly romance, thrillers, crime, science fiction and fantasy.
Please send a CV and cover letter to Joel Naoum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will close on Wednesday, 16 December 2015.
