Who we are and what we do
Hachette UK is a leading UK publishing group. The group is made up of ten autonomous publishing divisions and over fifty imprints with a rich and diverse history.
What you’ll be doing
We are currently recruiting two data-savvy people to work as part of the Project Eve team on implementing a new royalty system and supporting business processes. This is an ideal entry-level role for someone who wants to work as part of a focused project team to deliver a key strategic system and make a real difference to the core running of the business.
How publishers use and interact with the new royalty system is extremely important, putting our authors at the centre of what we do today and need to be able to offer them in the future. We are therefore looking for people to join the close-knit Project Eve team based at Carmelite House in London.
There are two full-time roles that will be responsible for working with the Publishing Businesses to review specific data sets and align the structure and format to comply with defined requirements. Accurate, timely and consistent data will be critical to the success of the new system.
Who we’re looking for
This role would be an ideal opportunity for someone looking to learn about the operational and commercial aspects of publishing and who enjoys working as part of a team to deliver a shared goal. The project will run for two years.
To apply you will need to have a high level of competence with MS Office, specifically Excel. You will need to have a basic understanding of data from an analytical point of view. A positive approach to problem solving and the ability to be proactive and use your initiative are essential. In addition, you will be organised and enjoy working in a structured way, with deadlines for deliverables.
What we offer
This is a great opportunity to learn and participate in Project delivery. Project lifestyle is varied each and every day making for an interesting career should you wish to proceed into this field. You will gain valuable experience of how data is so important in most industries. You will be joining a focused and friendly team and will have opportunity to attend publishing events that take place.
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.
