Digital and Marketing Assistant

Coach House Books is looking for an enthusiastic, imaginative, organized Digital and Marketing Assistant. 

Duties include:

-       Maintaining our website, including liaising with our web designer

-       Updating and maintaining metadata, including spot-checks

-       Supporting social media strategizing and implementation

-       Creating digital graphics and banners

-       Possibly designing some ads and ephemera

-       Creating alt text for ebooks

-       Helping to brainstorm and implement marketing plans

-       Assisting our Marketing and Publicity Manager as needed

 

This is a full-time permanent position. It will require a combination of remote and in-person work at our offices near the campus of the University of Toronto.

It is a junior position, with the possibility of growing into a more senior role. The pay will depend on experience but will be around $40K to start. We also offer a Health Saving Account and a flexible workplace.

 The ideal candidate will have a working knowledge of HTML, digital graphics skills (ideally in  Photoshop), strong organizational skills, and an enthusiasm for independent-press publishing. Familiarity with InDesign or Quark is a bonus, as is familiarity with digital accessibility issues.

We encourage applications from any and all backgrounds, and we will be prioritizing candidates from marginalized groups. The job will involve some manual labour, specifically carrying boxes. We regret that our building is not able to be made accessible.

 

Administrator

Coach House Books is looking for an enthusiastic, meticulous, organized person to help with the administrative side of publishing.

The ideal candidate will have familiarity with Filemaker or a similar database, QuickBooks, and basic bookkeeping, and will understand the mechanics of book contracts, royalties, and rights sales.

 

Duties include:

-       Managing our custom-built Filemaker database, including uploading and creating sales reports, coordinating royalties, etc.

-       Support with grant writing

-       Writing and reading contracts

-       Some basic work in QuickBooks

-       Tracking foreign rights deals and creating updates

-       Some liaison with our distributors

-       Assisting the Editorial Director as needed

 

This is a full-time permanent position. It will require a combination of remote and in-person work at our offices near the campus of the University of Toronto.

Ideally, this is a more senior position, for a candidate with some experience in the business side of publishing; for such a candidate, the salary will likely be in the high $40Ks or higher, commensurate with experience. But we are open to candidates who are less experienced but passionate about learning the business side of publishing; the salary for a less experienced candidate will be in the low $40Ks, with reduced responsibilities. We also offer a Health Saving Account and a flexible workplace.

We encourage applications from any and all backgrounds. The job will sometimes entail lifting heavy boxes. We regret that our building is not able to be made accessible.
