Can you ensure that our publishing process runs like clockwork and be at the forefront of the business?


As Bibliographic Operations Manager, you’ll manage a team of Bibliographic Coordinators across Penguin Random House’s publishing houses to ensure the metadata for our books is optimised for maximum discoverability and sales. You’ll manage six people working across our three London sites, ensuring that they have everything they need in order to effectively maintain and enhance metadata for all our products new and old.


As a key member of the Bibliographic management team, you’ll input into the wider Penguin Random House metadata strategy, and be a champion for metadata at all levels and areas of the business.


Each of our publishing houses have their own processes, so you’ll partner with them to understand their individual needs and provide an excellent tailored service, while unifying them all under Penguin Random House’s overarching policies.


You won’t be content to let things happen by themselves – you’ll look for creative ways to continuously improve our publishing processes which impact or are affected by metadata.


It goes without saying you’ll have previous team management experience in a bibliographic or publishing role, and knowledge of Biblio will be an advantage. You will have an understanding of how metadata relates to every step of the publishing process. You’ll keep your ear to the ground when it comes to industry-wide data initiatives and their potential impact for Penguin Random House.


Connecting with people at all levels of the business will come easily to you, as you’ll also keep excellent relationships with relevant external partners (Nielsen, BIC, retailers, etc.).


Ready for your next challenge? Please apply with your CV and cover letter no later than 25th February.
