We have an amazing Audio Publishing role available, perfect for someone looking to progress their audiobook production career! One of the world-leading publishers of audio-books and digital media is looking for a hard-working and personable Audio Publishing Coordinator to join their growing team in Newbury.

This is a key role within the company and will be responsible for:

  • Managing all of the recording studios
  • Chasing final manuscripts from publishers
  • Maintaining the production schedule
  • Managing the logistics and scheduling narrators
  • Data entry and general organisational duties
  • Inputting metadata
  • Invoicing
  • Working directly with narrators and authors

This role is really exciting and well suited to candidates who have experience working in audio and digital publishing, and a strong interest in the fast-growing sector of audiobooks. They will be working closely with high-profile authors and narrators, and need to be confident and professional when communicating with all contributors. You could be an Audiobook Assistant or Studio Coordinator looking for your next challenge, but you could also come from outside of publishing and have experience working in audio production or a similar industry. You will have excellent attention to detail, excellent communication skills, and be exceptionally organised. You will also have a genuine passion for audio publishing. If this sounds like you and you have a passion for audiobooks and a positive can-do attitude, please do get in touch!
