The Hodder Education Group is a vibrant and growing educational-publishing business within Hachette UK. We publish for teachers and learners from pre-school through to vocational subjects. In recent years we have won market share across UK curriculum change, and significantly grown our international business. We have made a string of successful acquisitions, including adding Rising Stars and Galore Park to our Primary business, and acquired key lists in the Caribbean and Singapore. We are a leading player in educational assessment.
The company is the two-time winner of the British Book Industry Awards (2015 and 2016; shortlisted 2017); on both occasions the judges commented on the energy and dynamism evident within Hodder Education, making it ‘obviously a great place to work.’
Hodder Education is looking for a data controller – a new role created to help improve and maintain quality data across the division. The data controller will be responsible for supporting the commissioning team with title set up in our core publishing system, Biblio, and ensuring the master data for all titles is complete, correct and timely. They will work with our own reports and reports from other external organisations such as BIC and Nielsen to correct erroneous data or provide missing data. One of the first priorities will be to work on the projects to move Hodder Education onto new distribution facilities with fresh financial systems, and to work on the migration of our author contracts to a new royalty accounting solution.
The role will require an analytical mind, with good attention to detail and a love of problem solving.
Hachette employs people on the basis of their abilities. We aim to attract and develop talent from a base as broad as the world of readers we want to reach, with a wide and representative range of age, faith, disability, race, gender, sexuality and socio-economic, regional and cultural backgrounds.
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of applications we receive, we are only able to get in touch directly with shortlisted candidates. If you are shortlisted and need us to make any adjustments to help you attend for interview, please do let us know.
