Allison & Busby is a small office and vacancies to not open up very often, but we operate a work placement scheme for those who are interested in finding out more about publishing. No previous experience is necessary but you must have an enthusiasm for books and a willingness to learn.
Placements last for four weeks on a full time basis. During this time you will get the chance to work across a variety of tasks and hopefully gain an overall understanding of trade publishing. The first week is effectively a trial period at the end of which the placement may be ended if either A&B or the work experience candidate is unhappy. If the full four weeks is undertaken, the first two are unpaid, but A&B is able to contribute towards travel expenses for the final two weeks by paying £10 a day.
In order to apply for a placement, please download and complete the Work Experience Application Questionnaire and Proofreading Test for Work Experience, and email them along with a CV and covering letter, stating the dates you would be available, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that any CV applications that do not include a completed questionnaire and test will automatically be discarded. As we have many enquiries, please do not expect a reply to your application for 4-6 weeks.
