Palimpsest Book Production: Production Assistant

The UK's largest typesetting company requires a full-time in-house production assistant to assist in all aspects of the company's book production work. The successful applicant will work on both Mac and PC platforms, using Microsoft, Adobe and associated software. Experience of MS-office and general IT skills are essential.  Previous experience in a typesetting/publishing environment, while useful, is not essential as full training will be given in the company's systems and processes. The ability to apply the highest quality standards and to work well in a highly pressurised environment is key.

This entry-level post is offered on a full-time (39 hours per week) basis, with the possibility of promotion for an exceptional candidate.  

Palimpsest works with many of the UK's leading publishers and their bestselling authors. The company will celebrate 25 years in business this year and is employee owned. Please visit the company website for more details.
