I'm an English Lit graduate from the University of Manchester, and currently work for an independent publishing house in Manchester city centre. We are looking to take on some casual day staff to carry out mainly administrative tasks. Not the most exciting work perhaps, but a good opportunity to see the industry from the inside, and make connections that could possibly lead to a more career-forward role, here or elsewhere. It’s totally casual, with no minimum hours/week or contract.
Main duties will include:
Answering the phone
Proof-reading communications documents
Other general administrative tasks (banking, franking mail…)
This role would be particularly beneficial to someone interested in getting into publishing. The roles would suit hard-working students who are looking to improve CVs and gain some very transferable skills, without having to commit to set hours.
Thanks for your help.
