£21,500 with excellent benefits (inc. a Lake District view!)

Remember us?  There’s probably still a CGP book lurking somewhere at the back of a bookshelf from your school days... CGP’s been the UK’s No.1 Educational Publisher for a while now and we’re continuing to grow.  We’re currently looking for bright graduates to join our Editing team, so why not jump on board and be a part of our success?

We only ever take on exceptional people at CGP — our great books naturally require top brains to make them.  So you’ll need to have super GCSEs and A-Levels (at least ABB), as well as an excellent degree.  Subject-wise, you could be just the right person if you have either:

  • An arts, humanities or languages degree, with a strong A-Level in English Lit
  • A chemistry, physics or maths degree, with strong A-Levels in at least two of these subjects

But your qualifications aren’t everything — we’re looking for some work or volunteering experience too.  A true CGPer will also have a great eye for detail, the flair to make a subject fun, and a flexible and positive attitude... as well as plenty of personality, of course!
