BTBS sponsor 6 free places on event

Posted on June 6, 2019 in UK have been very fortunate that The Book Trade Charity (BTBS) have agreed to sponsor 6 FREE places on the How to Job Search in Book Publishing Course.
This is being run on Saturday, 15th June 2019 at Birkbeck, University of London.  Places usually cost £80

The FREE places will be allocated to those who have financial hardship, are probably unemployed and are committed to a career in book publishing. You are not expected to have any prior knowledge of the industry.
You need to be able to attend the full day from 9.30 to 16:30 on 15th June 2019 at Birkbeck, University of London.  [If you cannot attend the whole day, please do not apply for a sponsored place.] There are no travel bursaries available and you’ll have to make your own travel arrangements.

To apply for a sponsored place please send an email to Suzanne Collier at with the following:-

1. Attach your CV, it doesn’t have to be perfect or completely up to date.

2. Let us know your current employment status.

3. Write no more than 100 words as to why you want to work in book publishing.

We will allocate all places at 8.00 am on Monday, 10th June 2019, so all applications for sponsorship need to be in by then.  For reasons of personal privacy, we do not intend to publish the names of those who are successful in receiving a sponsored place.
