We are looking for an exceptional Team Administrative Assistant to join our lively Marketing department. At Transworld, we are passionate about our purpose; to raise consumer awareness of, and engagement with, our brands, books and authors in order to drive sales. We are home to many high-profile fiction and non-fiction authors as diverse as Paula Hawkins and Lee Child, Kate Atkinson and Rachel Joyce, Stephen Hawking and Richard Dawkins and Dan Brown and Sophie Kinsella. Last year we were voted Publisher of the Year at the annual trade awards.


Your role will have aspects of PA duties, such as diary management, meeting arrangements and minute taking and being the first point of contact for department enquiries.


Familiarity with general admin tasks such as filing, copying and printing is necessary, as well as creating PowerPoint presentations and updating team schedules.  You’ll need to be accurate working with numbers in order to maintain our department budget in Excel and for our invoice system. You will be the main point of contact with our media agency ensuring all advertising trafficking is timely and accurate.


You will be supremely organised, with bags of initiative, enthusiasm and flexibility, have a positive people-focused attitude, be ambitious to create the best work you can and curious about finding new ways of seeing and doing things. Your work experience does not have to have been in publishing, but a love of reading will help enormously!


In return, we offer the chance to join the busy, fun, creative Transworld team in a flexible and varied role. Based in Ealing until 2019 when we move into Central London, we enjoy the autonomy of a small company and the benefits of being part of the Penguin Random House Group. We look forward to meeting you.
