Temps in the World of Professional Publishing

Working across the whole of publishing means that we need to be really adaptable and diverse in our approach to what we do – and no sector is more diverse, or interesting (in my opinion..!) than the Professional Publishing sector. For Inspired Selection this means working with everyone from Professional Publishers in the legal, business, financial sectors, amongst others – to working with professional membership bodies, B2B publishers, charities, service providers to the industry and consumer publishers and content marketing agencies.

Being such a diverse area of publishing means that there is a steady demand for temporary candidates to join our clients and I feel it is so important to champion this amazing area of publishing to attract great candidates to join the world of professional publishing!

Every business and every profession needs content and information in order to function and grow. Whether it's professional education, guidance, or market information there is a huge amount of content created for professionals across all sectors and industries – the opportunity to be involved in this is a really exciting one.

As a Managing Consultant at Inspired Selection, I manage the Temporary Recruitment division – here I work on temporary assignments covering all roles from entry level to director’s and above working at all salary levels from entry level up to board level across administration, editorial, rights, design, publicity, production, sales, marketing and more. At Inspired Temps we work at short notice for that unexpected gap, deadline or for general extra support at busy periods. An Inspired publishing temp will be a skilled candidate who is available immediately and is paid on an hourly basis through our payroll. In Professional these roles could be technical digital roles, they could be for an experienced journalist, or perhaps for a marketer using data to market specific audiences. The possibilities are endless. .. Inspired temps also mirrors entirely what Inspired Selection delivers on the permanent side, working closely together to deliver an amazing service.

We work with some amazing clients, and candidates and whilst there are some amazing roles in Trade, STM, Education and Academic Publishing – if you want to be involved in data, be at the forefront of digital and use your expertise in a way that will directly affect and influence the world we live in then perhaps using that experience in a Professional Publishing environment could be an interesting area for you?

I work closely with our Associate Director, Esme Richardson who manages permanent recruitment, Abigail Barclay, Search Director and Suzy Astbury, Managing Director who manages our headhunting function alongside Abigail. If you’re interested in working in Professional Publishing and are just starting out, Kate Gamble, Consultant is the perfect person for you to be in touch with. We love this sector and look forward to supporting you in growing your career here too!
