I got back to my desk after lunch today to discover one missed call. The HR person at OUP had called and wanted to speak to me. I called back, and they would like to interview me for the job that I applied for the other week. The job is basically working within their English Language Teaching (ELT) divisoning, taking their existing material and turning it into electronic versions. Sounds quite interesting…

New Media Project Coordinator
New Media
English Language Teaching Division

We are looking for two experienced Project Co-ordinators to facilitate the development of new media products for the English Language Teaching Division.

These roles will involve supervising the creation of versioned product from existing material, as well as taking ownership of the development of small-scale projects. This will involve managing budgets, creating schedules, co-ordinating internal and external testing, liaising with editorial teams, and managing external developers.

Familiarity with Director/Flash and web technologies, and cross-platform testing are essential. Good communication and organizational skills are required together with proven new media project management experience. Experience of working in an educational environment would be an advantage.

The salary offered will be in the region of £20,000-23,500 depending on skills and experience. OUP offers a full range of supporting benefits.

It’s my first ‘external’ interview in quite a while – actually I think in over 7 years, and it is on Monday – yes just three days, but, as Clare up in Edinburgh pointed out: ‘The less time to get nervous, the better. Remember, they obviously like you on paper so you have nothing to be nervous about. :-)’
