Our culture

At Penguin Random House we think that what we do really matters. We reflect this in our values and how we run our business.

We care about what we do and want to be the best in the business. We thrive on ideas, fresh thinking and work hard together to bring them successfully to life.

All of which means there are always plenty of opportunities to develop, grow and progress your career.

Our Jobs

Connecting the world with the stories that matter involves talented people in traditional publishing roles, as well as jobs that you may not expect to find in our industry.

We are always on the lookout for people for a wide variety of roles in editorial, marketing, finance, sales, social media, IT, digital design and much more.

If you have relevant experience, we are particularly keen to advance your career. And, if you’re just starting out, we regularly offer work experience placements and a number of paid internship and entry-level schemes.

Our Benefits 

As well as the normal offering you’d expect from a company like us, we want you to be able to tailor your benefits to suit your needs. That’s why we offer a flexible benefits package.

You can buy and sell holiday allowance and opt in to a range of voluntary benefits - from technology purchasing schemes, gym membership to our cycle-to-work scheme, to name but a few.

We also have an award-winning approach to family friendly policies and benefits, for those of you with caring responsibilities.
