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).
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.
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.
Can you ace a 30 second pitch?
Whether that’s to a bookseller, a supermarket or even a restaurant chain – Sales is about building both existing and new relationships, and bringing our books to as many people as possible.
Our teams are structured to support specific Publishers and customers. You’ll know what you’re selling, and the market you’re selling it to.
The International and Rights teams also sell millions of books and translation deals across the globe.
This might mean forming new partnerships or making tweaks to the product itself – there’s a world of possibility. Actively seeking out these new horizons and being entrepreneurial in your approach is what we look for here.
International and Rights teams work with customers across the world – from schools, banks and start-ups as well as other publishers to bring Penguin Random House to a global audience. Understanding those different markets – and cultures, is crucial.
