We're looking for a passionate new Marketing Assistant
Icon Books is an independent non-fiction publisher based near Caledonian Road station in north London.
We publish head-turning, thought-provoking, popular books on science, language, sport, politics, business and much else besides, including the famous Graphic Guide series, bestsellers like The Year of Living Danishly, Queer: A Graphic History and Helena Kelly's Jane Austen: The Secret Radical.
We're looking for a passionate new Marketing Assistant who can help us engage readers, through social media, via trade marketing and in collaboration with partners in the book world and beyond. The successful candidate will be supremely organised and able to cope with a busy and varied workload.
A keen eye for design is important, and a knowledge of InDesign and Photoshop will be a great help, as will knowledge of how to fire interest through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and elsewhere online. You'll coordinate and write copy for our newsletters, help keep our metadata and website up to date, send out books to reps and booksellers and assist with the creation of our bi-annual catalogue and much other marketing material.
While previous full-time experience at another publisher isn't essential, you will be excited by everything that's new in our business, and able to help ensure that our marketing is focused, efficient and effective.
Please send a CV and covering letter (including your current salary) to Andrew Furlow, Sales and Marketing Director, by Monday 11 September: firstname.lastname@example.org.
