Literature Ireland

We are hiring: Projects & Publications Coordinator

Join the Literature Ireland team and help bring Irish literature to readers around the world!

Literature Ireland is the national organisation for the promotion of the literature of Ireland abroad. We achieve this by running an international translation grant programme and literary translator development projects, exhibiting at world book fairs, organising the participation of Irish writers at events and festivals abroad, and by producing a range of occasional publications and other resources. Literature Ireland is funded by the Arts Council and Culture Ireland.

The ideal candidate will have a background in literature and/or foreign languages, a relevant degree, and experience in administrative and editorial work.

The post will be primarily in-person and desk-based, though some international travel will be required from time to time, i.e. for international book fairs. The main duties of the role are as follows:
