  • Develop your communication, presentation, and relationship building skills as you help implement Wiley's strategic vision to lead the transition to Open Access and to 're-invent' publishing for the future

We are looking for people who have:
  • A bachelor's degree or equivalent and 2+ years of publishing experience
  • Experience in research publishing, strategic journal development, and a good knowledge of the different aspects of the journal publishing industry
  • A highly driven and well-organized working style; strong data analytics, time management, negotiation, and presentation skills
  • A proactive approach to account management, working with cross-functional groups, and communicating with various internal teams
