The Welfare State: A Very Short Introduction

'What is your typical day like at OUP?

My job is split pretty equally between events planning, social media, and liaising with the media to find opportunities for promoting OUP books and products through different channels. At the moment we are building up to the 500th VSI title in October with a year-long Road Show of events across the country, so a lot of my day is spent putting that together! I pitch review and feature ideas to journalists and also send out press copies of VSIs and the other books I cover to the media for review.'
