Red Apple Creative Editor (Fixed term contract)
We’re the UK's largest independent publisher of audiobooks and we work with some fantastic clients including Audible and Penguin Random House.
Our audiobook department has gone from strength to strength in recent years. We have six dedicated audiobook studios and an amazing in-house team supported by a brilliant roster of freelancers.
We are part of the SNK Publishing Group which also includes SNK Studios and Red Apple Advertising, so audio runs through the core of everything we do.
Across the wider business our other work includes the following:
Audio- Radio and Spotify commercials, 3D audio creative, podcasts, audio post production, immersive audio experiences and media planning/buying.
Digital- Website design and build, campaign microsites, Spotify interactive experiences, rich media units, web banners.
Video- Brand storytelling, animation.
In the last few years we’ve ticked off some pretty cool boxes:
-We’ve built up an amazingly talented team who deliver exceptional products for our clients every single day. There were eight of us four years ago, we’re over 50 now.
-We’re Spotify’s official creative partner.
-We have a solid and regular pool of clients who we love working with.
-Our audio facility is now 11 studios, including one of the few certified Dolby Atmos suites in central London.
-We set up a New York office so we can expand our offering into new territories.
-We’ve presented interactive experiences, continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
-We always celebrate our successes along the way… we love an excuse for a party!
We’ve done a lot of things that we’re really proud of but we’re not stopping there, so we’re now looking for an in-house Editor to join our Red Apple Audiobooks team on a three month fixed term contract.

We're kind and caring. We make a difference. We stick together and pick each other up when it's needed. We're people pleasers. We like to dance. We say please and thank you.
