GOOD MORNING AND HAPPY APRIL MY FRIENDS! Following Wednesdays internships post, here are the best entry level job opportunities for this week!
I know I tell you all the time on Twitter to apply for The Scheme, but seriously, apply for The Scheme! You’ll get a whole 13 months of amazing training with some of the best publishing pros at Penguin Random House, and you’ll get paid pretty nicely for the pleasure. Please just read all about it and a p p l y. You’ve got until the 8th of April to do so!
Editorial Assistant @ Titan Books (via The Bookseller)
Titan Publishing group are after an editorial assistant to work on their illustrated books. Ideal candidate will be “educated to a degree level” OR have equivalent experience (HOPEFULLY meaning that a degree isn’t compulsory!) They also want strong computer skills and a keen interest in TV and film. Send your CV, cover letter and salary expectations* to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Sales Executive @ Walker Books (via The Bookseller)
Now, I know it’s easy to be thrown off by the title ‘executive’, as I also used to automatically assume that it’s not for me. BUT! Often executive is just used as a word for ‘the person who does this’ rather than someone higher up within the company. If you can sell yourself as an executive, then you can ruddy well be an executive. Such is the case (I hope) for this nice little role from Walker. Answering to the Head of Special Sales, you’ll be assisting with running the department with a number of important responsibilities. Take a look at the job spec for full details, but the skills required doesn’t include the usual “must have 16 years publishing experience, an Olympic medal and exact location of Atlantis” nonsense. Apply by sending a CV and cover letter to Alexandra Miller, email@example.com , stating the role in the subject line.
The deadline for this is TODAY (01/04/2016) so get the applications in quick. PRH Children are looking for a production assistant on a fixed 12 month contract. A “basic understanding of book production and 4-colour origination is an advantage” but not a necessity, as full training will be provided. Apply for this with the Penguin Random House PCP!
An absolute cracker for those wanting to get into academic publishing, Springer Nature are looking for an editorial assistant to work on criminology, social policy, health studies and geography works. They want their candidate to be educated to a degree level and to have some admin experience. Apply with a CV and cover letter through the link above.
