Salt Publishing | Careers


Salt is a national and virtual business. Since 2011, we have gradually moved all our operations into the Cloud. We no longer maintain any physical offices and our publishing team is dispersed around the UK.

There are no current vacancies at Salt.

Work Experience & Internships

The nature of our new virtual operations means we are unable to offer any work experience opportunities or voluntary work.

We have now closed our successful Publishing MA internship programme run in conjunction with Anglia Ruskin University.

You can discover other British publishing companies in the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook, which provides a comprehensive guide to the book trade. 

The Independent Publishers Guild website also offers detailed information on publishers and vacancies.

Additionally, The Bookseller and Bookbrunch are both excellent sources for news about the publishing industry, offering features and commentary, articles and job listings.

We recommend these websites:

You may also be eligible to join the Society of Young Publishers.
