An inspirational not-for-profit organisation is looking for a life science graduate to work as a Publishing Assistant with scientists from the medical community on medical journals. This is a rare opportunity for a life science graduate to start an exciting career outside of a lab.  Alternatively, this role might also suit an experienced Publishing Assistant who's looking to join an organisation with a wonderful culture, loads of flexibility for work/life balance and fantastic professional development.

The successful Publishing Assistant will get hybrid working split between the office and home, as well as flexi-time hours.  You'll also receive regular, comprehensive training, so this is the perfect opportunity to develop into a Scientific Publisher.

Don't wait to apply - this role won't be available for long.

The experience we need.

  • A life science degree or higher is essential
  • Some commercial administration experience would be desirable
  • Customer service experience would be a big plus

The role.

As the successful Publishing Assistant, you will work with scientists providing high-level administrative support to the publishing department, including peer review staff and the editorial boards.

The company.

This is a rare opportunity for a science graduate to work at a not-for-profit organisation that they can be proud of. This organisation has a genuine impact on global health.

What you'll get in return.

If your experience fits the bill, you'll be rewarded with a salary between £21k and £24k.  A graduate with no commercial experience can expect £21k.  A graduate with commercial admin or customer service experience could expect a slightly higher basic salary and an experienced Publishing Assistant can expect £24k.  Regardless of starting salary, you'll have regular pay reviews, hybrid working, flexi-time, great pension and holiday allowance and first-class professional development.  This is an opportunity not to be missed.
