We’re currently recruiting for an Administrative Assistant to provide fantastic customer service to our community, and help out with the multitude of administrative tasks involved in a small publishing company. The position is intended for a remote worker, and may involve travel to conventions, some overnight stays and weekend work where necessary.
Pelgrane Press is committed to building a culturally diverse company and strongly encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
Our Administrative Assistant will be responsible for ensuring a prompt, friendly and professional response to all queries from our customers and colleagues, over email, on social media, and in person.
They will manage and develop our supply chain, monitoring and maintaining inventories of products in our mail order and distribution warehouses to maximize efficiency, liaise with key fulfilment and print partners to ensure high service levels and stock quality, and work with the Managing Director on print quotes and print buying.
They will also assist the Managing Director with ad-hoc administrative and marketing tasks where necessary.
This is an ideal opportunity for someone who is looking for a permanent position in publishing within the roleplaying industry. As a small, growing company, there will be opportunities in the future to expand the role for candidates with drive and initiative. Game writing and design work are not part of this position, nor will this position afford opportunities in those areas.
The successful candidate will have a passion for roleplaying games, excellent organisational and communication skills, thoroughness and attention to detail, and the ability to set priorities under pressure. A solid grasp of Word and Excel are essential.
The position is permanent, with an initial six-month evaluation period. The position is 15 hours per week, and the salary is US$900 per month. The position doesn’t include health insurance, so if your country of residence doesn’t have universal health care, you will need to be able to demonstrate having your own health care provision.

To apply, please send a covering letter via email with your CV attached as a PDF to Cat Tobin before Monday, June 24th 2019.
