Aceville is looking for a hands-on Editorial Assistant to join its busy Special Projects team and to help produce the company's annual bookazines, one-off supplements and contract publications, as well as assisting other print and online titles in Aceville's portfolio.

No two days (or hours!) are ever the same, so if you thrive on hitting tight deadlines, are incredibly organised, can turn your hand to different tasks, plus juggle multiple projects, then we want to hear from you.

  • Writing regularly for our websites and across social media platforms
  • Working on social media campaigns and PR activities for clients
  • Dealing with and responding to reader queries
  • Subbing and proofing features
  • Attending photoshoots
  • Signing off pages and covers for a variety of bookazines, under the Editor’s guidance
  • Occasional attendance at consumer and trade shows


The successful candidate will:

  • Thrive on working in a fast-paced environment
  • Hit tight deadlines with ease
  • Be highly organised and adaptable
  • Be a first-class writer with an excellent grasp of English grammar
  • Juggle multiple tasks with confidence
  • Have brilliant communication skills
  • Be highly creative
  • Be a whizz at social media and trend-spotting
  • Have a positive, can-do attitude
