Editorial Assistant: New Audiences
Firefly Press is looking to appoint an editorial assistant to work with our small Wales-based team to help us reach new and diverse audiences for our quality children’s fiction list for 5-19 year olds. The post is a fixed-term contract and could be full or part time with a mix of home and Cardiff-based office working.
The ideal candidate will have a strong, demonstrable working knowledge of, and a passion for, children’s and YA fiction. Experience in an editorial or bookselling role is an advantage but not essential. Training and support will be given, and the successful candidate will be expected to work alongside Firefly editors on all aspects of the editorial role.
For more information please email email@example.com or apply to the same address with your curriculum vitae, and a covering letter which includes potential strategies for reaching new and diverse readerships in children’s and YA fiction.
Deadline for applications – 24 August 2022
Firefly Press particularly welcomes applicants from underrepresented communities.
