Employment Opportunities

Marketing & Publicity Manager, Aconyte Books

Do you want to be part of the most exciting story in the Games Industry right now? Do the names Catan, Arkham Horror, KeyForge, Pandemic and Legend of the Five Rings get you excited? Are you in love with fantasy novels and the wonderful stories they can tell? At Asmodee Entertainment we are looking for a stand-out candidate to join our publishing team, as we prepare our range of novels based on Asmodee’s most imaginative worlds for our launch in May 2020.

Are you excited by the thought of representing great books to the wider world, singing their praises to sales partners, and arranging book promotions to gamers and fantasy fans around the English-speaking world? This role brings all of that for the right person.

You will be working as a key member of the Aconyte Books team offices in Nottingham, UK. Working to an agreed promotions schedule, you will liaise with our UK sales partners to plan book launches and effective publicity. In partnership with our North American sales manager and our sales partners at Simon & Schuster, you will ensure promotion and publicity covers that territory too. There will also be opportunities to organise and attend events, from modest in-store launches to the largest games and SF conventions.

The challenges in this role will be to understand the books and convey their unique qualities to our partners, to key publicity venues, and to the wider fanbase of fantasy readers and gamers alike. The schedule will be busy and the budgets modest, so creativity and drive are equally essential.

For the right person this could be a great step up, an opportunity to join a well-supported imprint near its start and really contribute to its success.

To apply for this full-time position, please take the time to craft a cover letter which really explains what makes you who you are, what you’ve done so far, and why this is the job for you. By all means send in a current CV too.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Please send applications to Vanessa Jack v.jack@asmodee.com by close of play Friday 22nd November.

Licensing & New Business Development Manager, Asmodee Entertainment

Do you want to be part of the most exciting story in the Games Industry right now? Do the names Catan, Arkham Horror, KeyForge, Pandemic and Legend of the Five Rings get your heart racing? At Asmodee Entertainment we are looking for a stand-out candidate to join our licensing team as we engage with ambitious goals that take us far beyond our heartland of boardgames and into the world of Publishing, The Media, Consumer Products and Location Based Entertainment. The world-famous game brands above are just a few of the properties you will be working with as you seek and deliver opportunities principally in the Consumer Products and Licensed Publishing categories mainly in the UK and Europe.

Are you excited by the idea of identifying and negotiating with key potential licensing partners and agents as we develop a broad portfolio of varied new products and experiences based on our amazing intellectual properties? Asmodee owns hundreds of IPs and you will not be short of compelling opportunities!

You will be working as a key member of the small Asmodee Entertainment team in our Nottingham, UK offices, as well as coordinating closely with our North American operation. Working to our agreed IP roadmaps plus reacting to the many unplanned opportunities and approaches as they arise, you will seek out and secure the best licensing partners to help us deliver our goals. Prepared to travel as required and to be the face of Asmodee Entertainment at relevant industry shows, you will also work closely with the Asmodee studios, finance and legal teams to ensure we deliver the best deals.  

The challenges in this job will be to relentlessly focus and deliver on the agreed priorities, to doggedly track down the best opportunities, to immediately bounce back when a deal goes south, to  simultaneously juggle many prospects, to make sure all the boring contractual details are nailed own solidly and to always keep a clear eye on the prize when faced with the countless exciting possibilities that lie ahead of us.

You will be joining us near the start of this epic journey, with plenty of wide-open space to go for. Make your mark!

To apply for this full-time position, please do take the time to craft a letter which really explains what makes you tick, who you are and why this is the job for you. By all means send in your latest, up to date CV as well.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Please send applications to Vanessa Jack v.jack@asmodee.com by close of play Friday 22nd November.
