Project Lead

Our client, a highly successful global educational publisher, has an exciting opportunity for a Custom Publishing and Licensing Project Lead to join their friendly and supportive team. This role offers an excellent salary and benefits package, as well as flexible, hybrid working, with 2-3 days per week based in the company's central London office.

As Project Lead you will take responsibility for the management of print and digital projects from proposal through to publication - including from preparation and submission of business cases, to the set-up, running and delivering of projects. The Project Lead will be responsible for driving and directing the project team and for managing resource, schedules, budgets, and delivery of assigned projects, ensuring quality and targets are set and met.

The ideal Project Lead will have strong organisational skills, editorial skills and sound commercial awareness. An understanding of rights would also be an advantage.

This position offers a great opportunity for candidates with some work experience in a publishing environment (either editorial, project management, rights, business development) to take the next step up to a more autonomous role. An understanding of the global ELT market would be an advantage but not essential.
