Production Manager - Children's Books

We have a fabulous new opportunity working for a highly successful, award-winning London-based trade publisher on their children’s imprint.  This is an extended maternity cover of up to 15 months which is available immediately and offers a hybrid working arrangement of 2-3 days in the office. The role will involve working in a busy but extremely friendly team and will oversee the production of all books, including new, reprints, co-editions and specials, ensuring books are on time and within budget. The role will also involve managing a small team and being responsible for their development and performance.  You will be responsible for negotiating and managing supplier relationships, including scaling prices, and implementing any department strategies in relation to suppliers and business needs and ensuring that all products are compliant with safety requirements.

This is a lovely senior production role where no two days are the same and you get to work on a range of great products.  We are looking for someone who has proven relevant experience, ideally from a children’s production background as ideally you will have experience of working with novelty products, but we will also consider candidates without this as long as they have a solid understanding of print and reprographic processes, and have great negotiating and budget management experience, along with experience of managing a small team.

We would love to hear from you if you feel this would be a great career move for you, and if you would like further information, please send your CV with a short cover note outlining your interest, availability and salary expectations.
