Volunteering with Policy Press/Bristol University Press


An insight into the world of academic publishing

"Getting to see inside a real publishing company and being entrusted with interesting tasks was really valuable and helped me to gain a job in the publishing industry." Policy Press Volunteer
 
At Policy Press we offer volunteering opportunities for those wishing to gain first-hand experience of the world of publishing. We are not only looking for people with experience of publishing but those with a broad array of skills and experience.
 
The role will be wide ranging across all operational teams of the business and will include tasks such as assisting the Commissioning team with cover selection, helping the Production Editors to correct documents, supporting the Sales Manager with data input, assisting the Marketing Executive with desk based research as well as general office tasks such as post and filing. 
 
If you are over 18 and can spare at least one day per week, we would love to hear from you
 
Although this is an unpaid position Policy Press will cover travel expenses.
