Job Details

Are you a public affairs professional with experience in engaging members and stakeholders?

Do you have a track record of successfully lobbying and delivering campaigns?

Would you like to work for a professional membership organisation representing all types of writers, illustrators and spoken word artists?

The Society of Authors is the UK trade union for writers, illustrators, scriptwriters and literary translators. We've been advising individuals and speaking out for the profession since 1884.

With almost 11,000 members and 25 staff, the SoA provides unlimited advice on all aspects of the writing profession, including the confidential, clause-by-clause vetting of publishing agreements, publications and a wide range of member benefits.

Join us to work with our CEO and communications team to help influence government policy and industry practice, and to promote understanding of the SoA’s aims and policies among our audiences.

It's an organisation where you can grow and develop and is also a great place to work. Our working culture is collaborative, friendly and supportive. What's more, we’ve recently moved into bright, modern offices located in a vibrant part of Bloomsbury.

Ideally, we're looking for candidates who are committed to a permanent, long-term position with us.
