This is a fantastic opportunity with a company that is setting the pace in publishing software and will suit someone with:

  • a good understanding of publishing workflows, preferably with specific knowledge in production, rights or royalties
  • specific experience using or implementing BiblioSuite
  • excellent negotiation and communication skills, with the ability to create strong relationships, as you’ll be working and liaising with individuals at all levels across the entire business and client portfolio.
  • a sense of ownership and commitment to achieve results
  • resourcefulness, diligence and a proactive approach to generating ideas and plans, working to create new business opportunities.
  • a collaborative nature who enjoys working as part of a team and has a sense of ownership to see projects through to a successful completion.

As a global employer, we believe our success depends on diversity, inclusion and mutual respect among our team members.
