Can you take the initiative to keep a team running smoothly?


We are looking for a highly organised, capable Editorial Assistant to be the valued lynchpin of our team.

You will be responsible for a wide range of administrative and editorial tasks from managing diaries, writing AIs (Advanced Information sheets) and covers, organising key departmental meetings and supporting the Publishing Director and Publishers.


Excellent communication skills and a confident, professional approach are essential and you’ll need to be comfortable working with a range of people, as you’ll liaise with teams across the business such as Marketing/Publicity, Sales, Rights, Production and others.


We’re looking for someone with an avid interest in commercial books, strong IT skills and the ability to juggle multiple requests and tight deadlines.


If this sounds like you, submit a CV and cover letter, and let us know a mass market book you’ve read recently and why we should also read it. This role will close on Thursday 14th December and the salary is £23,000.
