Publishing Apprenticeship Available!

• Jul 31, 2014 • Tags: ,

4th Estate and sister imprint William Collins are looking to hire a Publishing Executive to the Publisher.

The right candidate will be someone who reads voraciously, likes to be among the first to discover a new writer, a new blog, a forgotten classic, or a paradigm-busting idea—and to shout about it to their friends and followers.  They will have a sincere interest in not just having a job in book publishing but building a career in it. S/he will be highly organised, self-motivated, and a brilliant communicator in person and in writing. The role is extremely broad: from the administrative (managing calendars and processing invoices) to the editorial (reading manuscripts, writing reader’s reports and cover copy), with a dash of web copy, podcast recording, and social media participation thrown in.
