Our Vacancies

We are always on the look out for ambitious and hard working people who take pride in their work and who wish to join an expanding, forward-thinking organisation.

We will want to know your work history, experience, education and achievements. Here are a few pointers to help you with your CV to give you the best chance of us inviting you for an interview.

  • Use clear headings so that we can easily navigate our way through your career path so far
  • Take care with your spelling and grammar – we are publishers after all
  • Make it easy to read and don’t use strange fonts. Do not use photographs or lots of colours
  • Stick to the facts and don’t exaggerate. Include dates and don’t leave gaps – if you took six months out travelling, say so
  • Keep it ordered – list your most recent experience first
  • Tell us about your key skills and achievements in each role
  • Make sure we can contact you easily and always include your name, address, phone number and email address

Make sure that your covering email or letter explains clearly why you think you are a good match for the advertised post.

Your interview

A job interview is a two-way process and we consider it just as important for us to sell the company to you as it is for you to impress us.

Here are some of the qualities we look for in job candidates.

  • Be on time and prepared.
  • Do your homework on the company. We have many websites to help you research the company and the role.
  • Think carefully about the job you are applying for and how your skills match. We will ask competency-based questions as well as fact finding about you as a person
  • Prepare any relevant questions you may wish to ask about the company and the job.
  • Demonstrate interest and enthusiasm

We try to conduct all interviews in a friendly and relaxed environment. Feel free to ask us questions too!
