“someone embarking on a career in publishing with a long-term desire to work in the industry.”
Responsibilities include (but are not limited to): assisting all agency staff where needed,
reading and reporting on manuscripts,
communicating with clients,
answering the telephone, updating the website and agency social media,
processing royalty statements and managing book fair administration.
Apply with your CV and a covering letter that includes your notice period and salary expectations to Giles Milburn at firstname.lastname@example.org by 2nd February 2018. However, the Agency may close the recruitment process early if they find the right candidate, so don’t delay.
Or perhaps you have a different dream
If you would rather be a client of a Literary Agent than an employee think about coming to WRITE BY THE BEACH, the one day writing conference in Brighton.
All ticket holders have a GUARANTEED opportunity to pitch their story to a top literary agent or commissioning editor in a one-to-one slot. Plus there will be a prize for the best pitch, judged by our sponsor, literary agent David Headley.
Whatever your dream, I hope 2018 is the year you turn it into reality.
