You will assist in all aspects of administration, and you will have your own publishing projects to manage and will be encouraged to contribute ideas for development. This is an excellent opportunity to gain editorial and further publishing experience from working closely with the Franklin Watts and Wayland team and through liaising with contacts from across the publishing business.

Our staff are our greatest asset and our benefits reflect this. In addition to 25 days annual leave days per year + bank holidays, we have an extensive list of benefits that include: a wide-ranging training library, development programmes including mentoring, Cycle to Work vouchers, Private Medical Insurance, eye care vouchers, up to 70% off book purchases, a charity book shelf, 2 volunteer days per year to use at your charity of choice, many employee networks to join, summer hours (finishing at 1pm on Fridays during the summer months!), season ticket loans, rent deposit loans, generous pension schemes and much more!

The role will be based at our London office, Carmelite House, with a blend of in-office (3 days) and homeworking (2 days) per week.

Who we are and what we do

Franklin Watts and Wayland are educational imprints within Hachette Children’s Group. We produce educational non-fiction books and reading development titles for the UK and international markets.
