I.B.Tauris operates a work placement scheme for those considering a career in publishing. No previous experience is required but applicants must be currently undertaking a higher education course within the UK for which a work placement forms part of the course. The experience will provide a solid introduction to the publishing industry that should appeal to prospective employers.
Placements typically last for 3–4 weeks (full-time), based in our central London office. During the placement, the successful applicant will be assigned a mentor from one department, but efforts will also be made to provide experience in a variety of projects across a range of other departments, including Editorial, Production, Sales, Marketing and Publicity.
Places on this programme are limited but if you would like to apply, please email a CV and covering letter, stating the dates you would be available, and indicating whether there are any specific areas of the publishing process that are of most interest. Applications should be sent to Liz Stuckey.
