                                             There is also an old treadle-operated

                        Publicity Officer


          As social media becomes ever more important to companies, and
                         with various aspects being used by
                  the BPS, the time has come to look once again at
                             the role of Publicity Officer.
            This appointment will require the member to monitor what is
           happening within the printing trade, via magazines, social media,
           etc. This information can then be brought to the attention of the
                    members through the Small Printer magazine.

              In addition, the various activities within the Society can be
          publicised in these same areas, which will keep the BPS in front of
                          the various bodies in the industry.
          There is also the opportunity to publish advance notice of Society
                   events in local free newspapers or online media.
            For a complete job description, please contact the Secretary,
                     Peter Salisbury, at secretary@bpsnet.org.uk.
