We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, hardworking and organised Administrative Assistant to join Hashtag Press. The important new member of the team will work on our fast-growing, award-winning list and a new initiative we are running called Hashtag Press 2020.

We are a small, busy and creative team and we are seeking someone who matches our work ethic; who is hardworking, reliable, has a good eye for detail, and is flexible.
