Tista' taqra bil- Malti.
As the publishing industry has grown significantly over the past few years, our team has increasingly become larger and professionalised. The National Book Council are now looking at adding a new member to our team.
Working for the National Book Council provides an opportunity to make a difference in the ever-growing Maltese book industry, supporting the work of all its stakeholders. Our staff use their skills to find innovative, long-lasting solutions to better support authors, publishers, illustrators, translators, editors. We have a strong and highly-skilled team of people, and we keep learning and growing together, having all started out with small roles.
“We offer a career, not just a job. We will hire the most talented individual with exciting professional growth opportunities. We ensure equal opportunities, as well as an inclusive work environment,” the council said, “We are looking for a candidate who is committed and passionate, would thrive in a diverse and multi-cultural work environment, and is keen to bring new innovative ideas, skills and solutions. The assistant manager will be assisting in the preparation, organisation and management of events and projects, setting up marketing campaigns, executing outreach and assisting the team in daily admin tasks.”
This is a part-time job (20 hours per week).
- University-level education
- Good knowledge of Microsoft Office skills and social media
- Excellent command of both Maltese and English
- Previous work experience in the book industry
- Driving licence.
Unfortunately, given the highly-specialised nature of our work and the large number of applications that they receive when a vacancy call is issued, they will not be accepting applications from individuals who have no ties with the Maltese book industry, previous experience working in publishing, or basic knowledge of literature in general or Maltese literature.
To apply and find out about the salary package, send in your CV and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by 8 January 2021. Interviews will take place starting Monday 18 January.
