Could you turn a book into a bestseller?


We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic Publicist to join the Penguin Random House Ireland Publicity team.  We are looking for someone who can bring campaigns to life, from planning through to execution with the upmost creativity across all media platforms.


Penguin Random House Ireland is Ireland’s leading publisher, and we cover all markets and genres. We are literary and commercial; fiction and non-fiction; local and global.  We have a fantastic and extensive portfolio of authors including Donal Ryan, Liz Nugent, Roddy Doyle, Kathy Reichs, Sinead Moriarty, Ross O’Carroll-Kelly, Elizabeth Strout, Lee Child, Jeff Kinney and Dave Rudden.


As a Publicist, you will work closely and collaboratively within the publicity team, as well as with colleagues from across the business, in sales, marketing, editorial and rights. You will be confident in strategizing, planning and delivering innovative and creative campaigns.  You will work closely with authors to maximise their potential in everything they do.


This is an excellent opportunity for someone with a keen interest in working on a wide range of books both literary and commercial and on both adult and children’s books.  We are looking for someone with excellent organisational skills, attention to detail and ability to work well under pressure. Good communication skills and excellent social media skills are essential. Experience in publishing or an office environment is desirable, but not essential.


If you are a publicist looking to take the next step in your career we would love to hear from you.


Please send your CV and cover letter across by no later than 13th December.
