I stumbled across this thread when researching a job advertised in my area (Cambridgeshire).

A publishing company called AMP is advertising for an Editorial Assistant in Ely. It seems pretty likely this is Austin Macauley and that the Ely office is still much more than a 'distribution centre' (as advised on their website).

The advert says:
'In addition to general administrative work, the post will involve speaking and writing to authors. There will also be considerable scope for reading and writing reports on authors’ manuscripts and learning the minutiae of publishing contracts.'

Needless to say, having read the comments on this forum I do not want to work for this company.
