Profile Books is looking for a Marketing Assistant! Are you a keen reader across multiple genres? Apply now...

Profile Books is a leading independent publisher with strengths in non-fiction. Its lists are Serpent’s Tail, Souvenir Press and imprints including Wellcome Collection, The Economist and Viper Books. Publishing inventive books, powerful voices and lively thought, they create books that surprise, delight and endure. Bestselling authors include Mary Beard, Robert Greene, Sarah Perry, Esi Edugyan and Torrey Peters.
