Do you know your Ninky Nonk from your Pinky Ponk? Does Ubercorn wow you with his funky facts? And are you aware that if you jump in muddy puddles, you must wear your boots?


Ladybird is where children begin their first adventures with books, and we are looking for someone who can work with our exciting portfolio of pre-school brands to inspire a new generation of young children to explore, learn and read alongside their favourite characters.


We’re looking for an Assistant Editor or Editor with experience working with licensing brands and across a variety of story, activity and novelty formats.


You’ll work with some of the most popular Children’s brands such as Peppa Pig, Hey Duggee, Go Jetters, In the Night Garden and many others.


As part of a busy team, you’ll have the responsibility and freedom to manage your own workload. You’ll need an avid interest in what’s happening in the pre-school space, whether that’s TV, films, toys or games, and a strong grasp of what makes children’s brands come to life on the page. Your key responsibility will be desk-editing the books across our licensing programme and managing key stakeholder relationships, but there will also be the opportunity to develop your commissioning experience as the role progresses.


Reporting into the Publisher for Ladybird Licensing, you’ll work very closely with external licensors and the rest of the Ladybird editorial and design team, as well as Sales, Marketing, PR, Production and Rights colleagues, so you’ll need excellent communication skills.


If this sounds like you, apply by 11th December with a CV and cover letter as well as approx. 250 words on the following:

Tell us about a preschool brand which you admire and why. What are the important themes of the brand and who are its competitors?
