Thank you for your interest in working with us at The NewBridge Project and in the role of Bookshop & Reading Room CoordinatorThe closing date for applications is Monday 10 October, 12noon and interviews will take place shortly after, either in person or via video call.
The Bookshop & Reading Room Coordinator is a new, part-time role that will oversee the day-to-day running of NewBridge Books and The Reading Room. It is both a creative and administrative role, ideal for someone who is passionate about books, writing and publishing, who wants to connect with artists and producers, who is organised, and has transferrable experience working in a forward-facing role.
NewBridge Books is a shop that is unique to the North-East region in providing diverse, original and hard-to-find books, magazines, zines and art writing from independent and radical publishers and artists who self-publish, alongside artworks made by local artists and communities. This new role comes at an exciting time following the recent move of NewBridge Books to Shieldfield, at a time when we are keen to expand and diversify what we stock – so the Coordinator will have an opportunity to put their own stamp on the shop, what we sell and input ideas for its accompanying events programme.
