We are currently recruiting a :

Agent's Assistant – Books Department

We are currently recruiting a full-time assistant to one of our senior Book Agents.   Duties will include providing general administrative support, processing contracts and raising invoices together with orchestrating the smooth running of the office, reading and editing manuscripts and proposals, liaising with clients and publishers, and developing new ideas.  The successful candidate will be involved in all areas of client management and preferably have previous experience in this area, or elsewhere in the publishing industry.

Exceptional organisational, written and verbal skills are a necessity, together with a ‘can-do’ and entrepreneurial attitude, an eye for detail and experience of using MS Office.

Please send CV and covering email to jobs@unitedagents.co.uk                                                                                                            


We focus on three 10 week long Internships over the year.  Our intention is that it’s properly structured, the intern spending a fortnight in each department.  We also set up meetings with an Agent in each department so by the time the 10 weeks is complete our Interns have a clear understanding of artist management and what it means to be an Agent.  The role attracts a nominal wage.

Because the number of applications we receive far outweigh the number of places, we are only able to accept them during specific periods of recruitment, which we advertise here.  Please do not submit CVs outside of that time, as they will not be considered .

We look for individuals who have a clear passion for the arts, are computer literate, are willing to learn and have a can-do attitude.


We no longer offer ad hoc work experience placements, instead focusing on our Intern Scheme, detailed above.
