Are you a graduate looking to develop a career in publishing? Do you have a keen interest in and passion for education? If so, we would love to hear from you!
About the role:
The Editorial Assistant is responsible for supporting senior editorial staff throughout the publishing process, from planning to production stages. In this role, you will collaborate with staff across the business, including professionals involved in tuition delivery, creative output, copywriting, and print production.
The role is multifaceted, and is crucial to timely and accurate delivery of outputs, including proofreading and editing documents, serving as a liaison for writers and tutors, handling rights and permissions tasks and coordinating production activities. Editorial assistants may also perform administrative office tasks, such as filing documents, managing calendars, answering phone calls and recording expense reports.
Editorial Assistants will also be tasked with resource creation - designing and building the courses that our students and tutors use in class. This gives any successful candidate a wide remit with which to build their portfolio of professional skills and designed resources.
Who we’re looking for:
Key to the Publishing Team’s delivery across its outputs, this person needs strong communication skills, impeccable attention to detail and flair for design, an ability to thrive under time pressure, and a technical understanding of the print production process.
We are looking for a team-player who can manage detail-oriented work-flows across multiple teams, while using their initiative to suggest improvements to our ways of working. This person should love following rabbit-holes, learning and applying niche knowledge to improve operations.
Our Editorial Assistants have a passion for education and learning, and a desire for personal impact in this field, driving them to develop processes and increment improvements for products independently and continuously.
