Dublin Book Festival 2015: Intern Wanted

by Admin on July 18, 2015

Marketing and Administrative Assistant

We are looking for an administrative assistant to help in organising this year’s festival. The assistant will work closely with the Programme Director in liaising with authors, booksellers and publishers in order to make sure that the structure of the festival runs smoothly, as well as marketing for the festival. Candidates must be proficient in MS Office programmes, have fluent English and a knowledge of the publishing industry would be desirable, but not essential. We are looking for people with excellent communication skills as well as the ability to work as part of a team.

*The internship offered is unpaid, however, travel expenses and a small fee at the end of the festival will be covered. Days worked are flexible and will be 2 days per week. Applicants must have the facility to work from home. To apply for this internship, send a current CV and Covering letter to julianne@dublinbookfestival.com.

Closing Date: 24th July, 2015



This year, for the week running up to and the days during the Dublin Book Festival, we are looking for confident and enthusiastic drama students, groups and individuals to take part in a series of live pop-up performances on LUAS and DART in Dublin city centre locations. This would involve surprise readings of both poetry and prose to help spread word of the Festival.

This is an exciting opportunity for eager young actors and adults alike to exercise their imagination in front of a wide and varied audience, to remind people of the celebration, the community, and the collective awesomeness of Dublin Book Festival.

Participation in the Festival is open to those who are over the age of 18 years only. Please note that this is an unpaid voluntary role. If interested, please reply to info@dublinbookfestival.com where we would be happy to pass on more information.
