We are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious International Sales & Product Manager, working particularly with the Orion Publishing Group and the Octopus Publishing Group. This is an exciting opportunity to work in the Group International Sales department, and with our Hachette colleagues in Australia and New Zealand.

What we offer

We’re looking for a calm, confident team player who has excellent communication and organisational skills, attention to detail, an ability to multi-task and prioritise, and an enthusiasm for working in a fast-moving commercial environment.
