Production Controller, Penguin Random House Children's

An opportunity has arisen to join the Penguin Random House Children’s Production team to work across a diverse range of products on the Puffin list.

 

Working as part of a close-knit team, you will be responsible for delivering frontlist mono and colour titles with accompanying co-editions.  Your list may also include board books and novelty titles.  Special Sales projects will also be part of the role, so you will need to be a keen negotiator.  There will be opportunities to broaden your experience in other areas including handling digital and audio projects. 

 

You’ll be confident and self-motivated, have good technical knowledge and expertise, high commercial awareness, are creative and able to demonstrate passion for your titles.  You are a great communicator - adept at building and maintaining relationships with Sales and Creative colleagues alike.  You are used to working on a fast paced list, ideally with experience of colour and mono publishing and are proficient in managing the challenges this can bring.  A production background with at least a year’s experience is essential as is a good knowledge of product safety testing.  

 

You’ll have excellent attention to detail and will be able to demonstrate a calm, positive and flexible approach to your work – even when you’re under pressure. You’ll be a team player but equally happy to work independently on your own initiative. Strong organisational skills are also key.
