Academy Communications Executive – Faber Academy

Faber Academy is a thriving creative writing school, based at the heart of the literary world in the London offices of Faber & Faber. We are looking for an independent, adaptable communicator with a passion for books and writing to fill the role of Academy Communications Executive.

This is a broad, challenging position at the centre of the department. Like every role in our small team it’s a various job: you’ll be designing a marketing campaign one minute, proofreading a manuscript report the next, formatting spreadsheets later on and chatting to poets about their writing in between. You will have responsibility for the representation of Faber Academy in terms of marketing and publicity, on social and in traditional media, as well as facilitating communication with our large community of current and past students.

The position requires someone with an energetic and thoughtful attitude towards marketing and publicity, and there’ll be plenty of space for you to come up with striking, characterful campaigns to get our courses in front of the right people.

You’ll also be looking after the Manuscript Assessment Programme, liaising with our stable of readers and proofreading their reports before returning these to the customers. The ability to talk writing process to customers and to talk invoicing to freelancers is essential, and you’ll enjoy variety as well as responding flexibly to new challenges on a daily basis.

The salary for this position is available upon request.
