In this role you will support the Digital Learning Resources team in the editorial development and maintenance of print and digital learning materials. These will include textbooks, logbooks, training manuals, online tutor-facing resources, videos and interactive e-learning. You will need to be keen to work on content for the further education market, have an interest in publishing and digital technologies, and use your initiative to juggle various tasks at once.
About the role
The role involves performing general administrative duties to support the team, including supplier invoice processing, SmartScreen user account management, applying for product codes and coordinating reprints. There will also be opportunities to be involved with content development tasks such as photo research, proof-reading, maintaining our learning management system content (SmartScreen), and editing and checking assets and e-learning videos before live release.
In return for your hard work, commitment and services you’ll receive:
- Mentorship from members of the team who have vast experience in different parts of the publishing and e-learning industry.
- The opportunity to learn about all aspects of print and digital product development.
- The chance to apply your skills to projects which will help our learners to progress into their chosen career.
- An opportunity to learn about how digital technologies can be used by tutors and learners, as the team scopes ideas for future projects.
To perform this role effectively, we are looking for someone with an interest in educational publishing and e-learning. You'll need careful attention to detail and strong organisational skills. Since you'll be in constant contact with authors, suppliers and internal stakeholders you'll need excellent communication skills as well. Finally, it would be great if you had an ambition to develop skills in this sector.
