Everyone wants safe and high-quality healthcare. At THIS Institute (The Healthcare Improvement Studies Institute), we believe efforts to improve care should always be based on the highest quality evidence. We bring together healthcare staff, patients, policymakers, and academics to provide clarity on what works in improving healthcare, what doesn't and why.
The Editorial Project Manager will provide expert editorship and project management of publications that explore the evidence for a diverse range of healthcare improvement approaches. The publications include a 30-part series of academic overviews, a textbook of the collated overviews from the series, and an associated digest version. You will ensure that the content is accurate, clear, accessible, and engaging to a wide range of audiences, including healthcare staff, patients, policymakers, academics, and other stakeholders.
You will manage a complex publication schedule to deadline, which will involve working with over 60 authors to develop the content, overseeing the work of all suppliers (including the external publishing partner, communications agencies, and freelance editors and designers), and knowing when to seek guidance from the institute's editorial team. You will oversee the peer review process to ensure the robustness of the content and provide editorial expertise to ensure that the publications are of the highest standard. You will lead on the development of content to support the communications campaign, working closely with the institute's communications team.
We are looking for a skilled editor with exceptional attention to detail and significant experience of making technical and complicated information accessible to both academic and lay audiences. You will have experience of managing all stages of the publication process ¿ including commissioning, peer review, editing, production, publication, dissemination, and evaluation ¿ and proven ability to deliver complex projects to deadline. You will be a strong communicator, able to manage relationships with stakeholders, provide diplomatic editorial feedback, and coordinate suppliers.
