Work in Publishing Week 2018

Save the Date! Work in Publishing Week 2019 will take place from Monday 18th November to Sunday 24th November.

Work in Publishing Week is a national campaign to inspire young people aged 14-24 to pursue a career in publishing.

Through free events, activity across social media and content on our website, we will:

  • Provide practical support and guidance for those looking to enter the industry including CV and interview tips
  • Showcase the breadth of career opportunities in publishing, from editorial to IT, through case studies and job profiles
  • Champion industry professionals from diverse backgrounds through Q&As with professionals at all levels of the publishing business
  • Challenge common myths and assumptions about the industry (e.g. that a ‘creative’ career isn’t a secure one)

This year, Work in Publishing Week coincides with Discover! Creative Careers Week, a weeklong event led by Creative and Cultural Skills that aims to help teenagers discover the breadth of jobs on offer in the UK’s fastest-growing sector. 

If you have any questions or ideas that you would like to discuss, you are welcome to get in touch with Communications Manager Eliza who will be managing the campaign:
