We have an exciting opportunity for an organised team-player to join the vibrant and award-winning Vintage Publicity team as a Publicity Assistant.
As Publicity Assistant, you will provide administrative support to ensure the day-to-day smooth running of the team. This role requires organisation and efficiency, confident communication skills and exceptional time-management. Tasks will include supporting publicists with their campaigns and events, helping with author schedules, writing press releases, liaising with journalists, authors and the public, managing internal communications, and updating databases.
This is an opportunity for an enthusiastic candidate with a love of books who is keen to learn and able to use their initiative.
VINTAGE publishes some of the world's most thought-provoking, unforgettable, beautifully designed books - from contemporary trail-blazers to our red-spine VINTAGE classics. We are proud of our broad family of diverse writers, ranging from world-class prize-winners to brand new, emerging talent. We love the thrill of coming across an undiscovered work of genius, of reading a classic that you've always meant to, of finding a book that speaks urgently to us and our times, and of publishing books for a variety of readers. We're not just publishers - we're passionate book lovers, dedicated to creating beautiful objects for people who love to read.
This is a 9 month contract with a start date of Jan 2020.
