Literature for Everyone

The RSL team is led by an ethos of respect and compassion for each other and the communities we work with, and these values are reflected in everything we do. We believe literature is for everyone, people of all ethnicities, gender identities, disabilities, cultures, religions/beliefs, sexual orientations or ages. We are a queer/female-led team that is dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace. We prize integrity, creativity and thoughtfulness. As such, we encourage applications from people under-represented in the creative industries, particularly candidates from the global majority, and disabled candidates.

Our Application Process

We use application forms instead of CVs and cover letters as we want to give candidates the space to tell us about their experiences in a less rigid format. We understand that people will have taken different routes to us, and we’re interested to hear about you.

We are a living wage employer and all roles are paid London Living Wage at a minimum, including any internships or trainee roles, to ensure fair access to all. We have worked to remove barriers in our recruitment processes and no personal information is included in what will be reviewed as we shortlist candidates for interview.

We recognise the importance of salary transparency. All roles have a set salary range which will be advertised with the job, and we have pledged to the Fawcett Society’s #EndSalaryHistory campaign. This means we will not ask for details of any current or previous salaries as we recognise that this practice is a self-perpetuating system that maintains historical gender and ethnicity pay inequality.

Current Vacancies

We do not currently have any vacancies.
