We're looking for a Press Officer to join the award-winning Publicity team at Transworld Publishers.
If you have some experience executing publicity campaigns, this is an excellent development opportunity. You will both run your own book campaigns and support on more high-profile ones, learning from the wider Transworld team.
The role also includes occasionally accompanying authors on book tours, to media interviews, literary festivals and bookshop events and some departmental administrative tasks including maintenance of our mailing lists, catalogue and liaison with Reading Partners.
Experience handling logistics and related admin will also be useful, whether that's booking author travel and accommodation, organising events, posting promotional packages out to influencers or processing invoices and expenses.
You'll have exciting ideas for launching both debut and established authors across print, digital, broadcast, events and partnerships, and maintaining a readership.
The ideal candidate will need exceptional people skills to work with authors, agents, media and influencers and internal stakeholders. You'll be able to build relationships quickly, enjoy the art of persuasion and negotiation and be comfortable working with people of all seniorities.
We are seeking someone who is adaptable and tenacious. You'll be calm under pressure, comfortable with last-minute requests and quick to respond to current events.
Please apply by 11th October 2019 with a CV and covering letter telling us about a recent Transworld book campaign and what you admired about it.
