Current Vacancies

College Publisher

Deadline: 21 March 2015

Thames & Hudson is the leading global publisher of illustrated books on all aspects of human creativity and civilization. Building on this strength, the company has developed a successful list of intermediate and upper-level art and archaeology textbooks and e-media aimed at the North American and international higher-education markets.

Owing to the impending retirement of the list’s publisher, we are conducting a search for an exceptional individual to lead our college team, which is based in London and partners with Thames & Hudson’s US-based sister company. Direct experience of higher-education textbook publishing in a senior editorial role, familiarity with the North American market, a sophisticated understanding of sales and marketing needs, deft management skills, and the contacts and abilities to carry forward a competitive high-quality programme in this rapidly growing sector of our business are all essential. A knowledge and understanding of the history of art would be advantageous.

The successful candidate will be an effective leader with a collaborative and hands-on approach. She or he will have a proven track record in commissioning outstanding books, and knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, the use of digital media in education. She or he will be able to inspire authors, help support and enthuse the college sales teams and convince educators. Ultimately, she or he will be a person with the flair and vision to help us meet our goal of continuing our current growth and doubling the size of our college business. Extensive international travel is required.
