THE ROLE

Join our friendly, motivated Creative Team and work with big brands on innovative online projects. This is a hands-on, client-facing role with loads of variety. You will assist the team in taking projects from the initial client brief to completion, overseeing design and uploading the publication to the web.

It is a busy environment with multiple projects going through the studio at any one time. No two days are the same in this role. You’ll be adept at multi-tasking and handling a fast-paced workflow. As a key member of the team, you will assist with all aspects of our client projects and will work towards having your own client list. Project management and client handling skills are essential.

We are looking for someone with an understanding and appreciation of the online environment. You will become an expert on the PageTiger publishing system and deliver clients maximum impact from their online projects. Good writing and editing skills are required along with strong IT skills. An understanding of HTML would be useful in this role.

As part of a small, hard-working team, the Editorial Assistant will pitch in at all levels:

  • Copywriting for a variety of industries and audiences
  • Liaising with clients
  • Proofreading, subbing and editing
  • Sourcing images and overseeing design
  • Uploading publications and adding interactivity
