In this role, you will manage digital products across the business. You will support the EBook Operations Manager in coordinating the distribution and availability of all Bloomsbury eBooks and audiobooks, ensuring all content is ready for frontlist publication and maintaining Bloomsbury’s online eBook presence.

The successful candidate will be the first point of contact for any queries from internal departments regarding eBook and audiobook distribution. Your main responsibilities will include running processes to identify gaps that would prevent successful publication, supporting key teams to resolve those gaps and educating and training other teams and colleagues on distribution workflows. You will run regular audits and catalogue reports to monitor the availability and data accuracy of Bloomsbury eBooks on customer sites and make essential changes to the internal eBook records to fit availability and metadata requirements. 

Bloomsbury Publishing is looking for a candidate with excellent communication skills. You will be the first contact for external developer support and important internal stakeholders, helping drive developmental changes, flag issues and problem-solve. You should have good attention to detail, be well-organised, be able to work proactively with limited direction and be able to identify potential for process improvement. Practical computer skills are necessary. You should have a strong knowledge of Excel and other Office tools. Knowledge of digital vendors, metadata and platforms like Biblio and CoreSource would be advantageous. 

This role is based in Bloomsbury’s London office and will work a hybrid pattern of three days at home and two days in the office.
