Careers at Little Tiger Group
 
LITTLE TIGER PRESS - Production Controller

We are looking for an experienced Production Controller to join a busy and skilled team, working on both LTK and Stripes.

LTK produce innovative novelty books designed to educate and entertain. The range includes noisy touch-and-feel books, lift-the flap and pop-up titles, sticker books, tabbed board books, jigsaw sets and much more on a list of both illustrated and photographic titles. Your duties would include managing all new titles on the frontlist and producing the extensive backlist.

Through Stripes Publishing we produce a range of engaging fiction for six year olds to teens. We publish commercial, prize-winning titles that stimulate children's imaginations. Our most recent YA anthology, A CHANGE IS GONNA COME, has generated a lot of discussion, as it showcases diversity in publishing. You would be responsible for the complete list, front and back, which covers both one-colour and four-colour print.

The job will involve the fulfilment of titles from receipt of files to delivery, working directly with suppliers both in the UK and in the Far East, coordinating schedules, managing co-edition print runs and negotiating print prices. Therefore, the ability to communicate clearly and effectively with both in-house departments and external suppliers is essential.

The ideal candidate will already be working within a book production environment, with a minimum of two year's experience. They will have strong organisational and problem-solving skills as well as a can-do attitude.

For further information, email a CV and cover letter stating current salary details to lbaird@littletiger.co.uk

All applications to be presented by 5th February 2018.

 
Work experience

Are you interested in a career in publishing? Would you like to learn more about how a children’s publishing house works, gain valuable experience in the industry, and discover what it takes to bring a children’s book to life?

Little Tiger Press offers work experience placements in the Editorial, Design and Marketing & Publicity departments. These are unpaid (although we do cover expenses of up to £10 per day) and usually last a fortnight.

Work experience at Little Tiger amounts to much more than tea-making and photocopying. Tasks will vary – from reading new picture book submissions alongside an editor, to writing a press release for the marketing team, to researching festival dates with our publicist, you’ll certainly be kept busy! 

Applications for work experience are via the form below. Please fill in your details, tell us why you’d like to carry out a placement at Tiger Towers, and upload your CV.

Please note that due to the large quantity of applications we receive, we cannot promise work experience to all applicants. Successful applicants will be contacted as soon as possible.
