You’ll be one of four Schemers joining us on 11 September 2017 for just over a year.
During your time with us, you’ll be with two of our eight publishing teams, spending six months with each.
As you’ll soon find out, no two days in the life of a publicist are the same. But we’ll do our best to show you the ins and outs.
You’ll keep on top of various media, such as magazines, newspapers and blogs with an eye on who is talking about us – and who’s not talking about us…yet.
Creating and organising events are another big part of what the teams do – making sure that our books hit the shelves with a bang. You’re not at your desk 9-5 and will have the chance to work at evening events at times.
With the support of the team around you, you may also speak to journalists and persuade them to read and review what you’re pitching.
Finally, there will be your share of admin. Whether that’s organising a mail-out to reviewers and bloggers, to delving into the detail of a guest list for an event – your care and attention will mean that our authors feel they’re in safe hands.
What happens at the end of The Scheme?
We hope to set you up for success in your future career as a publicist. You’ll have a mentor and tailored development plan while you’re here to help you on your way.
While there are no guarantees, we’ll work with you to try and find a role that suits you at the end of your time with us.
What does it pay?
You’ll get a salary of £23,000 a year, 25 days’ holiday plus a load of flexible benefits – from technology discount schemes, to gym membership and plenty more.
