Senior Journals Publishing Assistant (13023)


Location: Oxford

Deadline for application: Friday December 2, 2016

This is an excellent opportunity to start building a career in the publishing industry.

As a Journals Publishing Assistant, you’ll gain experience of various different aspects of publishing. Along the way, you’ll enjoy a wealth of development opportunities, with exposure to some high profile and prestigious academics. You’ll be liaising with internal colleagues at all levels and will receive strong support from a highly skilled and very friendly team. Your colleagues in publishing will rely on you for excellent administrative support in the management and development of established journals, and the researching of growth opportunities within the journals programme. Your responsibilities will range from dealing with enquiries, to drafting reports, to organising and minuting meetings. Crucially, you’ll also help to enable and support strong relationships with our Editors in Chief. That means you’ll play an important role in helping our business to grow and remain a top journals publisher.

Together with a degree, to join us you’ll need experience of using the Microsoft Office suite of programmes. We’ll also look for a good understanding of what’s required in an administrative working environment. Equally confident working solo and as part of a team, you’ll have the initiative and organisational ability to prioritise your own workload and meet every deadline. A strong and confident communicator, both in person and in writing, you can work well with people at all levels.

We are in one of the most dynamic periods in our history as technology, globalism and economic diversity create far-reaching changes in the world. The demand for knowledge and learning has never been greater, and Wiley is at the forefront of meeting that need. As a learning business, we make meaningful contributions to research discovery and lifelong learning by helping organisations achieve their goals and people achieve success from education through their career. We may have been founded over two centuries ago, but our secret to success remains the same: change with the times and adapt to meet the ever-evolving needs of our customers.

People have always been valued at Wiley. We work collaboratively, enjoy what we do and have opportunities to develop throughout our careers. And the rewards are impressive. Which means you can look forward to a competitive salary, defined contribution pension scheme, 25 days’ holiday (pro rata), third party staff discounts and employee assistance programme.

To apply, please upload a copy of your CV and covering letter.

Closing date: 2nd December 2016.
