Marketing Executive

What you’ll be doing

You’ll join an award-winning, dynamic, collaborative marketing team that works across prize-winning and bestselling fiction and non-fiction. As Marketing Executive you’ll work on a select number of literary titles, creating your own impactful and measurable campaigns that engage consumers and drive sales.

Who we are looking for

We’re looking for a candidate who is creative, highly organised and curious.

You’ll be experienced in thinking strategically about who the consumer is and how best to reach them and you will have an interest in emerging platforms and marketing opportunities.

You will be confident to contribute ideas, an excellent written and verbal communicator, and passionate about getting our books into readers’ hands.

With a keen eye for competitor activity and excellent audience understanding, you will be able to develop your own multi-platform marketing campaigns, and you will be as at ease when writing compelling sell-in copy as you are creating share-worthy social content.

What we offer

Our staff are our greatest asset and our benefits reflect this. In addition to 28 days annual leave days per year + bank holidays, we have an extensive list of benefits that include: a wide-ranging training library, development programmes including mentoring, Cycle to Work vouchers, Private Medical Insurance, eye care vouchers, up to 70% off book purchases, a charity book shelf, 2 community days per year, many employee networks to join, summer hours (finishing at 1pm on Fridays during the summer months!), season ticket loans, rent deposit loans, generous pension schemes and much more!

The role will be based at our London office, Carmelite House, with a blend of in-office (3 days) and homeworking (2 days) per week.

Who we are and what we do

Four-time winner of the Publisher of the Year award, Little, Brown Book Group is one of the most successful and dynamic publishers in the UK. Across our fifteen imprints, we publish as wide a range of titles as anyone in the industry, and pride ourselves on the quality, variety and diversity of our publishing output.

On our Little, Brown, Abacus, Virago, Corsair, Fleet and Blackfriars imprints we publish prize-winning literary fiction, agenda-setting non-fiction and a range of prestigious classics. On Sphere, we publish some of the world’s biggest brand-name novelists and an array of bestselling non-fiction. Our Atom and Orbit imprints lead the field in young adult and science fiction/fantasy publishing respectively, and our Piatkus Constable Robinson division is home to a vast range of fiction and non-fiction titles, with multiple Sunday Times bestsellers, backlist category killers, break-out voices and perennial classics alike. Meanwhile, our fast-growing Hachette Audio list is at the forefront of audio publishing, and our newest imprint The Bridge Street Press publishes upmarket non-fiction with an international outlook, dedicated to new ideas from authors who are leaders in their fields.

Our Commitment

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.
