It was Victoria’s last day yesterday (commemorated with – what else! – a Victoria Sponge). She’s got a new job at Mills and Boon as an Editorial Assistant – and so we’re looking for someone to join our team as a Publishing Co-ordinator.
This is a great opportunity for a hardworking, capable, self-starting and enthusiastic person to join Nosy Crow on a full-time basis, starting in October 2012.
You’ll need to be able to demonstrate your strong organisational and administrative skills, and ideally you’ll have experience in a publishing environment, and a strong interest in children’s books.
You’ll have excellent written and spoken communication skills in English combined with a good grasp of arithmetic. You’ll need to be able to communicate well with a range of people including authors, illustrators and suppliers.
The main role of the Publishing Co-ordinator is to work with the Head of Operations providing support in sales, marketing, PR and production. You’ll provide the administrative back-up to enable us to publish, market and sell our books as well as we possibly can. You’ll prepare sales material, co-ordinate the production of marketing material, work with PR to get great reviews, and manage the production of our e-books and reprints. As is the norm in a small company the boundaries of your role won’t always be clearly defined so you will need to be willing to muck in and have a go at things that aren’t necessarily familiar. You’ll need to be able to juggle multiple priorites; and use your initiative to do this.
If you’d like to apply, please send Imogen your CV and a covering letter as soon as possible via email ([email protected]) – the closing date is Friday, 28 September, and I’m afraid we can only consider candidates who have the right to live and work in the UK.
