Cambridge University Press

Competitive Salary + Comprehensive Benefits

About the role:

The Education Reform department at Cambridge University Press works with Ministries of Education around the world to improve their education systems through coherent reform strategies. Currently, we are recruiting for a range of roles to fulfil projects that we are presently bidding on. Should we be successful in the projects we are tendering for, there will be a great new opening for a Publishing Assistant, to support the Arabic Programme team.

As Education Reform's Publishing Assistant, you will carry out a wide range of editorial and publishing support activities and will liaise with both internal and external publishing teams.

This is a great opportunity for someone, ideally with little to no publishing experience, who wishes to gain a foothold in the industry and learn more about educational publishing, within a team that delivers exciting educational solutions direct to a specific customer.

About you:

This will be a fast paced, challenging and rewarding position as you work with the Education Reform team to exceed our ambitious goals. The focus of this role is on our Arabic projects so it would be an advantage if you hold Arabic-speaking or writing skills, but this is not essential.

You will need to be highly organised and efficient, have a good eye for detail and the ability to work independently or as part of a team. You may wish to gain invaluable experience from working with Project Managers to successfully deliver large and complex projects to very specific standards and criteria.

The successful candidate will have strong communication and people skills, excellent team-working and organisational skills and a 'can do' attitude. In this role you may also need to work some evenings/weekends during key delivery windows so flexibility to work such hours will be required.

About us:

Cambridge University Press is a global not-for-profit organisation is committed to the advancement of knowledge worldwide through our exciting publishing programme. You will be joining a diverse and collaborative workforce and you will be supported in your career ambitions to achieve your potential.

Help us achieve our mission, and you will have a career that is not only hugely satisfying but brings with it great benefits and a stimulating, supportive and flexible working environment.

Why us?

A great central Cambridge location, our office is only a ten minute walk from the train station and guided busway. Benefits include a staff incentive scheme, flexible working, free life assurance and a contributory pension scheme, 28 days' annual leave, subsidised restaurant and café, free on-site gym and sports facilities, and season ticket travel loans.
