Publishing Assistant – Media Analytics Ltd – Oxford, England

The publishing assistant will work with the publisher of Global Water Intelligence on developing new projects, editing and writing reports, and building relationships with partner organisations. It is a highly varied role reporting directly to the managing director of the company, and makes an ideal starting point for anyone interested in pursuing a career in high-value information publishing. It combines both editorial and organisational responsibilities. The editorial responsibilities involve some journalistic work for our news publications, and some writing and editing work relating to our websites and consulting reports. The organisational responsibilities involve working with the managing director to bring new ideas for websites, print publications and live events to fruition. This involves liaising with our partners, contributors, and advisors to follow up proposals, and finding ways of making these proposals a reality with the assistance of our existing staff. 95% of our customers are outside the UK, so foreign travel is involved.

After a couple of years in the position, the publishing assistant would be expected to take direct responsibility for one or more of the business lines under development, ensuring a fast-track career within the international publishing sector.

The successful candidate should have a degree from a Russell Group (or equivalent) university, and have the following qualities

  • An abiding curiosity about how the world works, and how information and relationships can help it work better
  • The ability to understand complicated ideas quickly, and express them with clarity
  • Competence in organisation and delivery
  • A persuasive social confidence that facilitates the exchange of information and the building of relationships
  • A high standard of written English
  • Appetite for travel

Applicants should submit the following three items in order to be considered for this position

  • Their CV
  • A covering letter explaining how they think they could be useful in this role
  • A summary of no more than 150 words outlining their degree thesis or an essay written as part of their degree, with a headline of exactly 52 characters (including spaces) designed to make the reader want to read more.
