Maverick Publishing Specialists are retained consultants for this assignment.
Our client, the Royal College of Psychiatrists, has recently outsourced its journal publishing activities to a major publisher and is now looking to recruit an experienced Head of Publishing to manage this new outsourced relationship. This is a senior, high-profile role, working with editorial boards and the external publisher to develop the publishing strategy and set and implement commercial and editorial goals.
You will be an experienced publishing professional with a strong blend of editorial, team management, commercial and business management skills, ideally gained within the publishing arm of a learned society or with a commercial publisher with a strong track record in society publishing. You will have a demonstrable track record in managing relationships with society publishing partners, proven strengths in developing and delivering on commercial goals and a clear ability to engage with senior editorial stakeholders within the academic and research community.
This is an exciting and challenging role with a Society which wants to maintain across-the-board control of its publishing agenda in conjunction with its external partner, and will suit a publishing professional motivated by the chance to shape and drive an agenda for positive change.
