Senior Production Manager, Puffin

Want to work on the world’s best children’s books?

From Philip Pullman to Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl to the Very Hungry Caterpillar, Penguin Random House Children’s impressive list makes this Senior Production Manager position in the Puffin team a rare and exciting opportunity.

We’re looking for someone enthusiastic about making a difference, who has a commercial outlook and who is comfortable driving change.

Working across a wide range of formats and products, including novelty, you must have excellent experience of mono and colour printing, pre-press and digital workflows. You’ll work closely and collaboratively with the creative and sales teams to identify and implement solutions for manufacturing, costing and scheduling challenges.

With a track record of successfully delivering to deadlines, you’ll also have experience of leading a team and influencing and negotiating at a senior level, both internally and externally. 

This role will suit someone with strong relationship building skills. You’ll not only manage a team of 8, but understand the importance of inspiring, developing and enabling them to do their best work.

Most importantly, you’ll be creative, calm under pressure and extremely well organised.

If this sounds like you, please apply with a CV and cover letter by 9th July.

This role will be based at our Strand office until June 2020 and move to Embassy Gardens after that.
