I joined Hachette as part of our 2021 traineeship. Working across editorial, marketing and publicity at Hachette Children’s Group gave me valuable insight into the publishing process, and placements with Waterstones and Curtis Brown literary agency broadened my knowledge of the industry. I am now super excited to be staying with the excellent HCG team as an editorial assistant!
