(Senior) Commissioning Editor, Ebury


Can you spot the next big thing?  Do you love to create beautiful books?


If you know your rose harissa from your rose quartz and are immersed in all things culture and lifestyle, we may have the perfect role for you.


Ebury is the UK’s largest dedicated non-fiction publisher. This is a time of growth for our award-winning illustrated list and we’re looking for a talented and passionate editor to commission.  


We are the home of Yotam Ottolenghi, Mary Berry, Rick Stein and Johanna Batsford. From best-selling food and drink to standout gift, mindfulness and wellbeing, our Ebury Press and POP Press books are united by unique voices and high-quality content, which is beautifully communicated through eye-catching design.


Are you always on the hunt for the best new restaurant? Did you spot veganism before anyone else?


You’ll have your finger on the pulse, and will always be thinking, ‘is there a book in that?’ And if there is, you’ll be able to shape that concept into a proposal, know which audience you’re going to sell it to and how to package it to the high-possible standard.


This role will suit someone with a strong background in commissioning four-colour and mono food and drink, diet and health, lifestyle and gift titles. You’ll have a genuine passion for this area, and will be brimming with ideas on what’s going to be the next genre to pop up, or the new food talent to break through and how you’d package the book as a potential bestseller.



If you have worked in a similar publishing environment, ideally with a mix of lifestyle book experience, please apply by 28th August with a CV and cover letter, and let us know about what recent non-fiction lifestyle books you wished you’d acquired or worked on and why.
