Futureproofing the publishing industry


We don’t have a crystal ball.

 

But we do have teams dedicated to understanding our landscape – our retailers, consumers and industry.

 

And to help us do that, we need the right legal advice, HR support and people to keep our lights on (literally).

Our structure


We have a number of teams that work right across the publishing group.

 

From Strategy, Analytics and Corporate Responsibility to HR, Legal and Facilities – we rely on hundreds of different experts, every day.

Not worked in publishing before? That’s fine by us


We have a lot to learn from other industries, whether that’s elsewhere in media, FMCG, retail or tech. New perspectives are often exactly what we’re after.

 

Your role will span the whole business – so whatever job you’re doing here, there will be plenty of variety and collaboration across a range of departments. Working with change and shades of grey, and adapting to these, will also keep your job interesting.

Who better to share with you what a career in one of these areas is like at Penguin Random House than the people doing these jobs?

In the thick of it


How do we decide what to bid for the next big celebrity book? What about if it’s a debut author?

 

How many do we print? And how do we make sure it stays profitable?

 

Enter Finance.

Our structure


At Penguin Random House, Finance plays a key role in our business from our publishing to group accounting and reporting.

 

The team are based between the London offices and our site in Frating, Colchester.

Could you explain an accrual to a new designer?


We have a range of opportunities – from commercial finance, where you’ll get to partner with our Publishers and keep their P&L in check, to financial control and reporting across the group.

 

You may have or be working towards an ACA, ACCA or CIMA (or other accounting qualification). Whatever job you’re in, clear communication and the ability to collaborate well with creative colleagues is essential.
