An independent children's publishing company in central London is looking for a Foreign Language Publishing Executive to join their team. This is a key role in the department providing administrative, sales and marketing support for foreign language territories.
Your main responsibilities will be to coordinate effectively, send out advance material, keep customers informed on production schedules and despatch dates, organise shipments and invoicing, perform stock analysis, organise stock transfers, arrange and create publicity schedules for export trade, launch reprints, analyse sales figures, attend meetings (both in the UK and occasionally in Holland), liaise closely internally and externally, and you will be involved in the budgeting and forecasting.
The successful candidate will be fluent in French, be a commercially-driven team player and have a passion for Children's books. Proven experience in a Rights or Export Sales role, preferably within a Children's Publisher, is a must. You will have strong administrative and IT skills (advanced Excel, Word, Outlook), the ability to work both in a team and to your own initiative, and you will have an excellent command of the English language. Some customer service experience would also be an advantage and you will have the ability to coordinate and multitask your workload efficiently.
The Foreign Language Publishing Executive will be confident at working calmly under pressure and able to meet deadlines and liaise confidently with all levels. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking to progress in their career within Children's Publishing and take on a new challenge.
