Do people look to you to Get Stuff Done?


You may not have heard of Publishing Operations before – but that’s because this is the department that makes sure everything is running smoothly in the background.


The Publishing Operations team supports all the creative teams across Penguin Random House Children’s, making sure that all the teams are on track to get a book published, available online and in stores with all of the right information attached. This role is a fixed term contract from March 2019 to April 2020.


You will primarily support the Editorial and Design teams, but also work closely with Rights, Sales, Inventory and Production, so you’ll be someone comfortable working with a huge range of people and solving problems.


You’ll be the go-to person for queries relating to our online book pages; you will work closely with colleagues to make sure our online retailers have all the right artwork and information for their websites; you’ll ensure purchase orders and invoices for our suppliers and freelancers are raised and paid on time.


You’ll also organise key departmental meetings, pull together reports, agendas and minutes, and coordinate diaries.


We’re looking for someone to become an expert on Basware and Biblio, and proficient in reporting on Tableau, which are our databases and systems for processing invoices, uploading data to retailers and reporting analysis – full training will be provided, but you’ll need to enjoy working with detail, data and systems.


If this sounds like you, please apply with a CV and cover letter by 7th February.


Salary: £23,000

We partner with The Book Trade Charity who offer financial support to people looking to enter the book trade but who may struggle to afford the costs of attending interviews and undertaking internships
