Administrator (UK Schools Publishing)
About the team
As part of a small team of administrators, you will support a busy publishing department (called ‘Learning Services’) within the Pearson UK Schools division. The products created by the Learning Services division ranges from textbooks to interactive digital content and support UK schools, colleges and international schools across a wide range of subjects including primary literacy, modern foreign languages, maths, science, and vocational subjects, such as BTEC Health & Social Care.
The department is split across two sites in London and Oxford. Travel between the two sites is not required, but it is essential that effective communication skills are used to ensure the department is supported on both sites. We regularly use Google Hangouts to conduct remote meetings as a way to keep in touch across sites.

It has responsibility for ensuring the smooth running of the department, and supporting a range of different teams and functions. The role works closely with the content teams (editors and publishers) and external suppliers (providing editorial, design and digital services).
