The Penguin Random House UK sales teams all have in-depth knowledge and wide-ranging expertise of our publishing, our markets and our retailers.

We nurture and retain strong relationships with national bookshop chains, supermarkets and digital retailers, and we also have a separate field sales team dedicated to working with a broad range of smaller independent booksellers throughout the UK.

In addition to our reach in the UK, we work with retailers across the world. We work closely with our experienced marketing and publicity teams to ensure that our physical, digital and audio books can benefit from the best promotional activity to reach the widest possible audience and drive sales.

Penguin Random House UK has an extensive and diverse array of titles available in all formats for adults and children and our sales teams can help you with catalogue information, point of sale and promotional materials, as well as advising on tailored marketing of our lists and individual titles for your retail business.
