We’re currently recruiting for a part-time temporary Production Assistant to perform a range of administrative and editorial tasks necessary to the production of our roleplaying game books. The position is intended for a remote worker, and may involve travel to conventions, some overnight stays and weekend work where necessary. Pelgrane Press is committed to building a culturally diverse company and strongly encourages applications from female and minority candidates.
The Production Assistant will assist the Managing Directors with a number of tasks, including administrative, marketing, project management and editorial support, to ensure the smooth running of the company.
They’ll be responsible for managing relationships with key licensees and third-party publishers in the gaming industries, monitoring potential publishing opportunities in these areas, and for the scheduling, budgeting and quality control of key titles.
They’ll often be involved in projects from conception to completion, so this is an ideal opportunity for someone who is energized by the variety that comes with working for smaller companies, and who thrives on those all-hands-on-deck moments as we continue to grow our business.
The successful candidate will have outstanding organisational and project management abilities, and strong written and verbal communication skills. A solid grasp of Word and Photoshop is essential, as is the ability to use Excel. Experience writing and editing copy and social media content is desirable. Knowledge of InDesign and experience of publishing is useful, though not vital. The most important traits you must have are:
- a passion for roleplaying games
- excellent organisational skills
- the ability to set priorities under pressure
- a strong desire to learn
The position is for an initial three-month contract, with the possibility of an extension for the right candidate. The position is 20 hours per week, and the salary is US$300 per week. The position doesn’t include health insurance, so if your country of residence doesn’t have universal health care, you will need to have your own health care provision.
