Based in Boston and London, Nicholas Brealey Publishing is an award-winning publisher internationally renowned and respected for publishing quality nonfiction, with international appeal. For over twenty years, we have published thought-provoking, best-selling books in areas such as popular psychology, self-help, coaching and leadership, business and economics, as well as travel/adventure writing and crossing cultures. We are always on the look out for big, bold ideas, smart thinking, and lively writing that transcend these subjects and create new genres.
This is an exciting opportunity to join an established and innovative independent publisher as the Publicity/Marketing Manager. We are looking for a pro-active, self-motivated and talented person, to join our busy team in the U.S. as an integral part of the organization.

The ideal applicant is a dynamic, enthusiastic, creative PR/marketing professional who is detail oriented, has good media contacts, is driven and has an understanding of the publishing industry and its markets.
The Boston Publicity/Marketing Manager will work with our small staff to secure media and market coverage for our titles, by developing and managing national publicity and marketing campaigns for approximately 10-15 titles per year. This position is responsible for promoting the company’s titles in niche areas, as well as in general markets, in addition to helping to drive sales revenue by utilizing both traditional and new media. We are looking for a well-organized, hands-on, and commercially-driven individual, with a strategic focus on the trade/professional publishing space, both in print and digital form and its markets. You should enjoy working both as a team, as well as independently, and have an eye for detail. You will need to be confident in liaising, building and maintaining relationships with people across all channels, and with those based internationally. With up-to-date IT skills, you will need to have a solid understanding of using modern metadata, bibliographic, content management and other digital workflow systems.
