Digital Production Assistant
Watkins Media
Islington, London
Starting salary: £24,000

Daniel Culver:

Watkins Publishing are seeking a highly organised Digital Production Assistant to look after our audiobooks, ebooks and other associated media.
This is a full-time role and will be part office based (two days minimum in our London offices), with the ability to work from home for the remaining days.


The Digital Production Assistant will report to the Editorial Manager and will work on both fiction and non-fiction titles across all of our imprints, managing digital assets for Watkins Publishing, Nourish, Angry Robot, Repeater Books and Datura – our new crime imprint.
While not an editorial position, the role requires a close working relationship with the editorial departments of all of our imprints, so an understanding of the editorial and book production processes is fundamental to the role.

This is an entry level vacancy, so requires no formal experience or qualifications, and all of the necessary training will be provided to the right candidate. This would suit someone looking for their first role in publishing.
The position does require close attention to detail, so strong communication skills, lots of patience, and the ability to problem solve are all key requirements, as is the ability to manage your own time, adhere to schedules and procedures, ensuring digital formats publish alongside all physical books.
We are an equal opportunities employer, so of course welcome applications from candidates who are currently underrepresented in publishing, but ultimately the role is open to anyone who has a love of books and audio, and who is keen to break into the industry.

Please email your CV and cover letter to Daniel Culver:
Please include “Digital Production Assistant” in the subject line.
Early applications will be prioritised.
