Salary: £27,000

Location: London (hybrid working)


Bloomsbury are looking for not one, but two enthusiastic Contracts Assistants to join their ranks! If you would like to join the busy and exciting Groups Contracts Department, then keep reading about this entry level role into the publishing world.


This role will work on the legal side of the publishing industry across the different divisions of the UK and US offices. If you are successful, you will be communicating between internal departments to ensure contractual information is up to date, as well as maintaining contractual information on Biblio. You may draft contractual agreements and respond to general enquiries that the department may have from both internal and external sources, plus much more.
