Who we’re looking for
This is an exciting opportunity to join a friendly team, working partly remotely and partly in our fantastic riverside offices in London, working on a diverse range of books in a dynamic and fast-paced environment!
This is a fixed-term contract to the end of 2020
Who we are and what we do
We have a great opportunity to start your publishing career at Little, Brown Book Group, a dynamic and highly successful division of Hachette UK.
Working with every department in the company, the Little, Brown Operations team have an overview of the entire publishing process. They ensure that all books flow from the moment of acquisition to the very end of their lives on time, on budget and as efficiently as possible. They run key company meetings and make sure that deadlines are met, book data feeds are correct, and they decide how many copies of each book to print, working hard to keep all titles in stock and available. If you are super organised and keen to get involved in all aspects of publishing, a role in Operations might be for you!
What you’ll be doing
You will gain an excellent working knowledge of all stages of the publishing process, from acquisition to published books, whilst providing administrative support to our Publishing Operations team. The role will work across all of Little, Brown’s imprints as well as Hachette US books, liaising with multiple departments and help to ensure that our publications’ data is inputted fully and accurately. Key tasks will include metadata input, dealing with new acquisitions, preparing materials for company meetings and maintaining internal systems.
Who we’re looking for
We are looking for someone who is able to communicate with colleagues across the business, work to tight deadlines and take on large data input tasks. You will have office experience, good IT skills (knowledge of Biblio would be a great advantage), and the ability to prioritise and work well under pressure.
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.
Closing date: 13th September 2020
