Troubador Publishing Ltd are seeking a new Marketing Controller to work on the marketing of a range of fiction and non-fiction books to both retailers and the media.

The role is varied, ranging from writing and distributing press releases, creating marketing materials for authors (training will be provided), liaising with retailers on book launches, and talking to the local, national and online media about editorial coverage.
Troubador publishes over 500 new titles each year, in both fiction and non-fiction. The company is based in modern offices on the outskirts of Kibworth, just off the A6.
Candidates should apply by sending a CV and covering letter, detailing why they wish to be considered for the role, to Jonathan_White@troubador.co.uk. Successful candidates will be asked to attend an interview.
