Faber Academy are hiring – Join us!

[CLOSED] We’re looking for someone brilliant… is it you?

  • Super-organised?

Faber Academy want you. We are looking for a new Academy Assistant to support every aspect of our thriving creative writing school: setting up the rooms for our classes and events, taking bookings, and keeping our customer data up to date.full-report-graphic

But that’s not all.

This is a varied, hands-on role: you will be doing everything from making coffee to drafting copy. You will know how to make writers feel at home and you can prioritise your tasks through the day so that every customer has an equally excellent experience. You will have some experience of working in a customer-facing role, either in retail or in hospitality, and you will need to be confident taking phone calls and answering customer enquiries from the outset. You will also have an interest in writing, though that doesn’t necessarily mean you are a writer yourself.

We’re a small team and our job is different every day, so you will need to be flexible, motivated and creative in how you approach your work.

What you don’t need, necessarily, is a degree. In fact, at this stage, we’re not even looking for a CV.

Applications for this position will close at 5pm, Monday 13th March, 2017. This is a full time permanent position.
