Reporting to the UK Assistant Director, your role will be to support all aspects of the UK operation, from assisting clients and generating invoices, to writing marketing copy and managing content on the website. It is a wide-ranging, busy and varied role, perfect for someone who wants to experience more of the publishing world.

The NetGalley team is virtual, with teams in London, the US, France, Germany and Japan.

The Assistant Director is based in London, but we encourage applications from anywhere in the UK. Occasional travel to team meetings will also be expected.

We’re looking for someone available to start immediately, and work 20 hours a week (with potential for more hours in the future). This position is entry-level, but provides a lot of potential to try new tasks, contribute your ideas, gain experience and make your mark.

Required Skills:

  • Detail-oriented and extremely organized
  • Adept at prioritisation, juggling multiple tasks and meeting deadlines
  • Excellent verbal and written communication
  • Motivated self-starter
  • Focused on delivering excellent support across a wide range of tasks
  • Background in professional administrative service

Attributes of Ideal Candidate:

  • Experience using cloud-based project- and client-management services like Sugar CRM, Smartsheet and Confluence
  • Digital-savvy with an understanding of current reading devices (and always willing to learn)
  • Publishing or other book-industry background or education
  • Passionate about providing leading customer service and upholding our position in the industry as professional, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable
  • Familiarity with NetGalley is strongly preferred

Closing Date: March 31st

Salary: £24,000 per annum, pro-rata
