Pan Macmillan is one of the most successful publishers in the UK, winning Publisher of the Year twice in the last four years with market-beating year-on-year growth over the last six years. Our Communications division is multi-award-winning, with numerous Nibbies, Book Marketing Society and Publishers’ Publicity Circle prizes on our shelves.

Launched just four years ago, Bluebird is the home of industry-shaking, record-breaking books from the likes of Joe Wicks and Pinch of Nom, bestsellers by Jack Monroe and Russell Brand, and exciting, vital new voices on subjects spanning mental health, feminism, food and drink, parenting and personal development. We are a boutique imprint publishing around 20 new non-fiction titles a year, and our books share a mission to help people live happier lives.

We have an exciting opportunity for a creative, commercially aware and highly organized marketeer to join our energetic Communications team. As Senior Marketing Executive/Marketing Manager you will be responsible for planning and implementing effective, audience-appropriate campaigns to promote our books. You’ll be passionate about great communication, and understand how this works across everything from the 3D package of a book through to great creative for social and outdoor. You’ll have a strong design sense and the ability to brief effective creative as well as to write and brief copy for a range of audiences. You’ll be overseeing Bluebird’s social media channels and working closely with our in-house Digital Communications team to brief social media campaigns so you will need a deep understanding of social platforms. You will be adept at forging partnerships with brands, charities and other organisations, and be comfortable devising campaigns at a variety of budget levels.

Publishing experience is not required but marketing knowledge and a passion for books is.

In return we can offer you a range of great projects, a creative, fun and supportive working environment at one of the most exciting imprints in publishing, as well as a competitive salary and benefits package. We would consider flexible working for the right candidate.
