Job Role: Editorial Assistant
Are you an avid reader with a passion for proof-reading? Would you be excited to work with a dynamic digital publisher? Sapere Books would love to hear from you!
Sapere Books is a digital-first publisher of genre-strong fiction and popular history. We are looking for an Editorial Assistant to join our small, remote-working team to work exclusively on backlist titles.
Backlist books are books which were published in paperback format originally, but which went out of print and are now being reissued by us in digital and print-on-demand paperback format.
We are looking for someone with a keen eye for detail to read through the converted files and pick up on any errors which may have been published in the original edition or which have been created in the conversion process from scanning the original paperbacks.
We will also train the successful candidate on formatting the files for ebook publication and writing new blurbs and product descriptions for the books.
This is a full-time position, but we are open to discussing flexible working hours, and the position will be exclusively working from home, so we welcome applications from all over the UK.
To apply for the position, please send a cover letter and CV to Amy Durant on email@example.com. In the cover letter, please also let us know where you heard about the job listing.
We look forward to reading your applications!
Closing date is August 31st.
