Requisition ID: 13481

We have an opportunity for a Contracts Assistant to join our Contracts team and support with processing author contracts and others e.g. translation rights contracts. This role is a 12 month fixed term contract with a salary of £23,000 and will be initially based in our Ealing office with the possibility of also working at our Vauxhall Bridge location.


Reporting to the Senior Contracts Manager you’ll keep the department running smoothly with general administration, and over time you’ll be given responsibility for drafting contracts too.


You don’t need previous publishing experience; we’re looking for strong Microsoft Office skills, administrative experience, the ability to juggle competing priorities and excellent attention to detail.


The role will involve processing contracts onto our Biblio IT system, arranging advance payments to authors, ensuring correspondence files and databases are up to date and other ad hoc admin duties. You will also prepare monthly progress reports for our publishing divisions, and prepare for key departmental meetings as well as conduct research on ongoing projects such as existing audio terms.


You’ll need to be comfortable communicating and having sensitive conversations with a variety of people, as you’ll answer queries from Editorial and Royalties teams, as well as authors and agents.


If you enjoy working independently and managing your own workload, this is the role for you. Please apply with your CV and cover letter no later than 13th December.
