Looking for a new position in publishing

Hmmm, I was in two minds on whether to make such a post but hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained, as they say. I have this blog so I might as well use it!

Life circumstances have taken a bit of a turn recently and I'm now looking for a new position in publishing. If you drop by this site and know anyone in publishing who could use my experience/expertise, do please get in contact through the contact me page. I'm based in Bristol, UK.

Profile: 20 years of publishing experience, spanning senior editorial roles (Publisher and Senior Publisher) through to highly technical positions in print/electronic journal production and software development. Proven innovator, versatile and creative individual able to make significant contributions across multiple functions.

  • Track record of winning prizes for publishing process and product/service innovation.
  • Desire to be involved with projects which fundamentally redesign digital publishing workflows: content strategy, authorship systems, component content management systems. To integrate content creation, review/approval, production, publishing and maintenance.
  • In-depth understanding of journal publishing and production workflows (including peer review).
  • World-class expertise in proceedings publishing.
  • Significant experience of open access publishing.
  • Expert in Editorial Manager (journal submission and peer review system): from configuration to full site deployment.

  • Able to communicate with, and work very effectively across, numerous publishing functions.
  • Innovative "out of the box" thinking, problem-solving attitude.
  • Strong interest in STM publishing opportunities presented by new web technologies.

Career interests: I am not seeking a purely technical position. Ideally, I would like to leverage my experience within a team environment focussed on product development, automation and innovation of publishing workflows, business analysis, process efficiencies, creation of new products and services.

Professional values: Deeply committed to, and passionate about, delivering outstanding customer service and experience. Methodical, with a high level of attention to detail. Enjoy seeing ideas being put into practice and yielding tangible results.

If this sounds interesting, do please get in contact.

Many thanks!
