Our client, a global journal, book and database publisher, is looking to recruit a new Head of Publishing, a Director-equivalent senior management position reporting directly to the Board and managing a 30-strong team including four senior direct reports. This is a mission-critical role which oversees the current book and journal programme but also has a strong focus on experimentation and discovery as the company also continues to drive an open research agenda.

The Head of Publishing will also work as part of the Leadership Network, working alongside key senior management peers in Product, Marketing and Technology to ensure content discovery meets commercial objectives. This is a role which requires a combination of proven management expertise both down and up the command chain, sound commercial acumen, innovation and an ability to think outside the box, and a demonstrable ability to work with and across other key disciplines within a matrix structure.

The role is based in Bingley, West Yorkshire, close to major transport hubs such as Leeds and Bradford and only 30 miles from Manchester, but also close to Bronte country and the Yorkshire Dales. As a senior manager, the Head will need to be based in the head office a minimum three days a week, with high visibility both to the publishing team and to key peers and the executive team.
