Abrams & Chronicle Books is a successful distributor of a wide range of award-winning illustrated books, gifts and stationery. We are looking for an assistant to join the Publicity and Marketing team.
Based in our Smithfield office, and reporting to the Publicity and Marketing Director, you will be assisting in the day-to-day running of a small but busy and creative department.

The role will also involve managing some campaigns, including writing press releases and pitching features, extracts and author interviews to journalists, so excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential.

Enthusiastic and self-motivated, you will have good time-management skills and be proficient in Microsoft Office, particularly Word and Excel. Experience in a similar role is desirable but not essential.
