Bring your knowledge of publishing sales to this role with children's publisher Nosy Crow...

We have an exciting opportunity for a talented, established publishing salesperson to join Nosy Crow working on their fast-growing, award-winning children’s list. The successful candidate will join our UK Sales team on a full-time basis, working from our London Bridge office.

This is a new role within our UK sales team and the successful candidate will report to the Senior Sales Manager and work across a range of key accounts.  The department manages all online, special, and supermarket sales, plus some high street accounts - including Amazon, The Book Depository, TK Maxx, The Works, Tesco, ASDA, Sainsburys, ALDI and WHSmith Travel.  For this role we’re primarily looking for someone to work across high street and supermarket accounts, as well as online. However, we’re seeking candidates with experience of working across any of these areas of business.  You’ll be working across our entire list from board and novelty books to 11+ fiction. 

We are a busy and dynamic team and we value the experience and creative input that we can each provide.  You’ll need to be flexible, determined, with a keen eye for detail, and good at working as part of a team.

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills plus the ability to write persuasive copy
  • Experience working with sales data and Excel for sales analysis
  • Confidence in building and maintaining relationships
