Careers at Little Tiger Group
Editorial Assistant - Caterpillar and Stripes

Our Caterpillar and Stripes team are looking for a candidate to support and assist their Editorial teams.

Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

The successful candidate will have:

Prior experience working with Booksonix, InDesign and That's Rights would be beneficial, but by no means essential. Applicants should be proficient in the use of Microsoft Word and Excel, and experience working on Apple Macintosh machines would be advantageous.

This is a lovely role within children’s publishing, ideal for candidates wishing to begin a career in an incredibly dynamic industry and to work as an intrinsic part of not one, but two teams across fiction and non-fiction ranges. If you have a passion for children's books and the skills required, we would love to hear from you.

Please forward your CV and a short cover letter outlining your suitability and availability to jmarx@caterpillarbooks.co.uk

Closing date for applications: Friday 16th March

Work experience

Are you interested in a career in publishing? Would you like to learn more about how a children’s publishing house works, gain valuable experience in the industry, and discover what it takes to bring a children’s book to life?

Little Tiger Press offers work experience placements in the Editorial, Design and Marketing & Publicity departments. These are unpaid (although we do cover expenses of up to £10 per day) and usually last a fortnight.

Work experience at Little Tiger amounts to much more than tea-making and photocopying. Tasks will vary – from reading new picture book submissions alongside an editor, to writing a press release for the marketing team, to researching festival dates with our publicist, you’ll certainly be kept busy! 

Applications for work experience are via the form below. Please fill in your details, tell us why you’d like to carry out a placement at Tiger Towers, and upload your CV.

Please note that due to the large quantity of applications we receive, we cannot promise work experience to all applicants. Successful applicants will be contacted as soon as possible.
