(5:10 PM, Friday 4 August 2017) The Publishers Association is the UK’s leading representative body for the publishing industry. Publishers pay an annual membership fee in exchange for services and a unified voice in government and the media. Our work covers a broad range of activity — from fighting piracy to removing VAT on ebooks to improving the diversity of the industry’s workforce.
You will be supporting the Publisher Relations team as they gear up for Work in Publishing Week (WIP) and providing general admin support. WIP takes place every year in November and is a nationwide campaign to encourage school and university students to consider publishing as a career. Take a look at the PA website and our Twitter for a better understanding of the campaign and what is involved.
