Campaigns Assistant, Ebury

Are you a people person? Can you keep things running smoothly? Are you a fan of food, pop culture and following your favourite influencers?


Ebury is the UK’s largest dedicated non-fiction book publisher, home to authors ranging from Yotam Ottolenghi to Stacey Solomon, Sheridan Smith, David Attenborough and Mo Gilligan.


We’re looking for a super-organised Campaigns Assistant to support our fast-moving marketing and publicity in Ebury’s Lifestyle/BBC and Spotlight teams. You’ll be a team player who enjoys getting things done efficiently and creatively, being involved in exciting conversations about future books and how to best reach our audiences, as well as enjoying independent problem-solving.


You’ll ensure that our teams have everything they need to engage audiences and drive sales, from preparing for meetings and creating presentations; diary management/travel arrangements; processing invoices; updating databases that feed through to our suppliers and organising promotional mail-outs.


In short, you’ll be the first point of contact for the team, regularly in contact with our editors, sales team, authors, designers, booksellers, event organisers and journalists. You’ll be great at keeping people updated and comfortable convincing people to read a book whether that’s on social, email or in person. You will be a crucial member of a fun, dynamic and supportive team.


This is a fantastic opportunity to learn both marketing and publicity skills, including dealing with press enquiries, running social media, and creating promotional materials. You’ll have a chance to build your own network – from journalists to booksellers, marketing designers to publishing professionals.


You do not need to have publishing experience to excel in this role. You will have a meticulous eye for detail and a creative interest both for visual design and copywriting. Most importantly, we want someone passionate about our books who wants to become a key member of our highly successful team.


If this sounds like the role for you, please apply with your CV and cover letter by Sunday 20th June. In your cover letter, please tell us about a recent campaign that’s interested you and why.


Salary: You‘ll start on £24,000. Expect a £1,000 increase on your first anniversary in this role and a further £1,000 on your second to reflect your growing contribution.

What you can expect from us:
Our employees are the heart of our business. We have a range of benefits to reflect our commitment to our employees, some of which are:
•    25 days paid holiday entitlement in year one, plus bank holidays
