About the Job

Do you eat, sleep and breathe the Horus Heresy? Would writing and coordinating books and other written material based on Mankind’s galaxy-spanning civil war be your dream job?

If so, we are looking for an excellent communicator with a high standard of English and an in-depth knowledge of all-things Horus Heresy to not only write rules and background for our Horus Heresy game system, but also to take the lead in coordinating writing projects for the range. Having already had your work professionally published will be beneficial when applying for this role.

You will be a part of our in-house Horus Heresy Writing team based at our Nottingham HQ. As well as writing content for our books, you will coordinate writing projects from start to finish. This will include not just books but also content required for promotional purposes, packaging, events, etc, ensuring that the work is done to schedule and maintains our high-quality standards. You will also promote the Horus Heresy range at select events and on GW social media.

We know that enthusiastically delivering consistent, accurate and error-free products to deadline and being the go-to person for the team is what makes this job hard.
