Phaidon is seeking a multi-talented Production Controller to join their award-winning global production team. Working closely with the Senior Production Controller, Supply Chain and International Editions teams, the successful candidate will be responsible for the complete production process of a range of reprints, non-English-language and co-edition printings, from order to delivery.
The successful applicant will be a clear communicator with excellent multi-tasking skills, the ability to work effectively in a fast paced environment, to problem solve at the highest levels, and to deliver products to Phaidon’s exacting quality standards, on time and to budget.
This position requires a minimum of 2-3 years previous experience working in a four-colour book-production environment, an amazing eye for colour and the ability to realise design visions at the very highest levels.
Essential skills include a strong understanding of four-colour repro, printing, binding and finishing techniques, along with a strong working knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop, and Excel.
Candidates will be selected for interview based on their abilities and we would particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented in book publishing. Due to current restrictions, we anticipate the selection process comprising a combination of online interviews and the submission of practical tests by mail. Applicants must have the right to work in the UK.

Early applications may be prioritised.
