The Day-to-Day Practical Roles

The postholder will be responsible for running the business on a day-to-day basis and must be able to handle a variety of tasks, thus they should have a wide skill base to suit the role.

The postholder will also be responsible for line management of an administrator and possibly the bookkeeper. Good people skills are essential as the role involves working with authors, customers, suppliers, industry peers, editors, typesetters, graphic designers, the media, shipping companies and Ellel teams across the world.
