RML is recruiting for an exciting opportunity to join our busy and dynamic translations rights team.

RML’s rights team also handles translation rights for several other UK based agencies, including Robert Caskie, 42MP, The Plot Agency, Bergstrom Studio and YMU and work with authors like Sarah Winman, SK Tremayne, Dr Julie Smith and Nicole Vignola to bring their books to international audiences.
