Why Hearst Magazines?

Hearst Magazines is one of the largest publishers in the world, with more than 25 brands, including Cosmopolitan, ELLE, Esquire, Good Housekeeping, Harper’s BAZAAR, Popular Mechanics, and O the Oprah Magazine. We reach more than 150 million people every month in the United States alone.

But we’re more than just our magazines. We engage our audience across all mediums and channels - print, digital, video and social – with sophisticated content creation, distribution and data capabilities. We create, package and sell products with cutting-edge technology and proprietary platforms. Together, we are reinventing publishing for the 21st century.

Your Impact

Hearst Magazines' Enthusiast Group is looking for an ambitious, organized, detail-oriented administrative assistant. In this role, you'll manage calendars, meetings, expenses, and contracts, and coordinate big and small staff events.

What you’ll do

  • Manage Editorial Director’s calendar, travel plans, and expenses.
  • Manage staff PTO calendar, distribution list, and print calendar.
  • Coordinate staff events, meetings, and team trainings.
  • Assist editors with travel reservations and questions.
  • Oversee database of fact-checkers and ensuring their projects are returned in a timely fashion.
  • Address Easton office logistics and IT requests.
  • Assist in planning and executing editorial and membership event and award submissions.
  • Review all external editorial content assignments and handle contract-request flow—communicating with assigning editors, Hearst legal team, and contributors—to ensure that copy/photo rights and model releases are secured before publication.
  • Submit related temp-employee requests and assist with onboarding.
  • Update Coda freelance contract codes and users.
  • Execute general admin responsibilities (e.g. tracking down issues, handling gifts for special moments, making reservations, and more).

Who you are

  • You have very strong organizational, issue-resolution, and decision-making skills.
  • You are a multitasker who thrives in a fast-paced environment.
  • You have sound judgment and discretion (especially when handling confidential material).
  • You have prior experience with administrative duties in a related role or internship.
  • You have knowledge of PowerPoint and Excel (or similar Google tools).
  • You have exceptional time-management skills and are able to regularly meet deadlines.
  • You have excellent communication skills and are comfortable corresponding with all levels across the organization.
  • You have a keen interest in media, how it happens, and its ongoing evolution.
  • Prior experience writing and reporting and/or organizing editorial projects is a plus.

The base salary for this role is between $45,000 and $50,000. The actual base pay offered is dependent upon many factors, such as transferable skills, work experience, business needs, and market demands. The base pay range is subject to change and may be modified in the future.
