We are looking for a particularly smart, responsible and organized assistant to join our growing team.

This person will mainly create and manage schedules, but will also lend a hand in writing copy, checking manuscript changes, proofing materials and other editorial duties as needed. Must be proficient in Word and Excel. Must be extremely organized and able to wear many hats. Editorial and/or assistant experience should be noted and is seen as a big plus.

The salary is $33,000 annually, with yearly reviews. Benefits include 80% of healthcare policy coverage, a healthy personal time off policy and work-from-home Wednesdays. Candidates will work in our offices in Salem once we return from working remotely due to Covid-19.

We use only sustainable paper vendors and print with environmentally-friendly, soy-based ink. Page Street Publishing Co. was founded in 2012 and is located just outside of Boston.
