Deadline Extended to Friday 15 May 2020

The FSA is recruiting a Book Prize Officer for the Executive Committee.

We are currently in the process of relaunching the Book Prize in a new sponsor partnership with Emerald, and we need a Book Prize Officer to organise and run the scheme.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Promoting the annual Book Prize
  • Administering entries, ordering books from publishers, finding judges
  • Overseeing the process to choose the shortlist and final winner
  • Liaising with winners/shortlisted entries

Good organisation skills are essential. We are looking to grow the FSA’s presence, and the Book Prize is one of our most successful initiatives.

Terms of office run for 3 years in the first instance and it is expected that Executive members engage with the running of the FSA through regular attendance at Executive and AGM meetings and regular contact with other Executive members.
