As announced on Eddison Books web site, we are opening a position as Rights Executive to replace Melissa who decided to change. If you are a junior interested in a career in international publishing, this can be an opportunity.
What is it about
Eddison Books’ publishing activities in the UK represented only 10% of the sales in 2016. All the rest is done in international markets with two activities:
For packs and illustrated books, we do more than selling rights. Printing 4 or 5 different editions allow creating economies of scale as on the example above with these four printing combined.

Of course, even if we are a UK business operating in English 80% of the time, with more than 300 titles published by Leduc each year, there are plenty of opportunities to build partnerships with book publishers all around the world. But to see the opportunities, we need someone who can read the books in French.
