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.
