Just that really- posting for traffic smile

I would love some advice on applying for these roles and a little bit of insider info as to what they're really like. I'm qualified up to MA level in history, I'm a member of young publishers and I'm looking in to courses in proofreading and copywriting. I've also got 2 years admin experience under my belt.

I used to be. It's an entry level position so you would be given copy editing and proofreading training as part of the job - don't pay for them yourself first. Copywriting wasn't part of my role. Research the subject area of publishing you're applying for. And make sure your application doesn't have a single error!
