A great new opportunity has arisen for a proactive and detail-orientated individual to join the Penguin Production team as a Production Assistant.
The role will be responsible for managing the Penguin Press mono back list which incorporates high profile authors such as Malcolm Gladwell, Keri Smith and Daniel Khaneman, as well as the prestigious Penguin Classics list.
Working closely with both internal colleagues and external suppliers, you will be responsible for delivering all reprints to budget, on schedule and to a consistently high quality.
We’re looking for a highly organised individual to cover all aspects of production – estimating, scheduling, managing content updates to both the print and digital formats, as well as administration support for the wider Production team. You’ll also need to use your strong IT skills to make this role a success.
The successful applicant will be a first rate communicator, self-motivated and able to demonstrate the ability to multi-task and effectively prioritise. They will be equally happy working independently or as part of a team. A keen eye for detail is essential, as well as the ability to balance a varied workload whilst remaining calm under pressure.
