Job Description

This is a really exciting opportunity for an organised and meticulous person to join emc design, one of the top UK design agencies dedicated to the publishing industry.

The main function of the Production Editor role is to work in a non-design capacity across the company, proof-checking, spotting design inconsistencies, carrying out corrections and text-formatting. A fundamental part of this role is to ensure the quality of work leaving the studio meets our exacting standards, deadlines and budgets.

Key duties of the role include:

  • checking work carried out by designers for accuracy - both editorial corrections and, with experience, maintaining the integrity of the design elements in production;
  • carrying out editorial corrections as marked on proofs and other non-design changes;
  • checking your own work for accuracy;
  • text formatting - importing text into an InDesign template/document, formatting text into the correct styles using style sheets, tables, feature boxes, GREP etc (on the job training will be given);
  • text formatting - laying out text and images in Word, formatting text and making corrections
  • communicating closely with colleagues during the production process to ensure all information is accurate and available;
  • when required, to assist the art buyers with carrying out the research of pictures for use in published material using internet based sources;
  • when required, to assist the art buyers with commissioning illustrators for use in published material, including checking editorial briefs, liaising with illustrators to maintain schedules and ensure briefs are accurately met, and assessing the quality of work supplied.

This role would suit someone who has had experience working in a similar capacity in-house at a Publishers or at an external agency. The work is fast-paced and requires someone who has a meticulous eye for detail when applied to working under pressure.

We are growing as a business and expanding the services we offer, so it's a great time to join emc design and grow with us!
