Editorial Assistant, Hodder Education
Who we are and what we do
The Hodder Education Group is a vibrant and growing business within Hachette UK. Over recent years we have won market share across UK curriculum change, and significantly grown our international business in a wide range of markets. We have made a string of successful acquisitions, including adding Rising Stars and Galore Park to our Primary business, and acquired key lists in the Caribbean and Singapore. We are a leading player in educational assessment.
The company is the two-time winner of the British Book Industry Awards (2015 and 2016; shortlisted 2017); on both occasions the judges commented on the energy and dynamism evident within Hodder Education, making it ‘obviously a great place to work.’

Who we’re looking for
You will be highly efficient, with a close eye for detail, and an excellent communicator. A can-do attitude is essential, along with a proven ability to work well under pressure and multi-task.
