Design Manager, Ladybird Education

Are you looking for a new challenge within education publishing, in a creative and supportive environment? We are looking for a Design Manager to lead our Custom and Contract education projects.

You’ll work closely with the Art Director and editorial and sales team across our international markets to scope and deliver major deals. You’ll be responsible for custom projects using existing content from across Penguin Random House, and for contract projects: creating new content to meet market and customer requirements.

This is a new and exciting position within the Children’s division, working on a rapidly growing list. You’ll have experience of costing projects and working with external freelancers and packagers and a passion for producing strong designs that will enhance the reading experience of our learners around the world. The role will involve selecting and skilfully negotiating with the right suppliers to deliver each project, responding to tight deadlines whilst remaining patient amongst ever-changing demands.

You will be working within a dedicated editorial and design team, and with sales and marketing colleagues in a fast-paced and vibrant environment. As such, you must be open-minded and flexible, a talented communicator and able to work as part of a dynamic team whilst managing time effectively and handling competing priorities.  

What you’ll get in return is the opportunity to work with a wealth of content from across Penguin Random House, producing effective designs across a range of series and the chance to make connections with colleagues from across the business.
