Want to join an award-winning PR team who work with leading children’s brands and the world’s best authors? 

We have an exciting opportunity to begin or grow your career within our hugely talented and pioneering Publicity team at Penguin Random House Children’s.

Our world is changing. Fast. This means we want to work with a wide range of talent as we find new ways to tell and share our stories. That is where you come in. We want to hear from every voice and see from all perspectives. You don’t need to have set foot in a publishing house before to grab our attention. Knowing your way around Microsoft Office would be useful. You’ll also bring with you a curiosity to learn and to think, see and do things differently.

What you’ll gain in return is invaluable PR experience, a wide understanding of the publishing process and the opportunity to work closely with a variety of departments. You will learn first-hand how we approach and execute PR campaigns, drive demand, run events and create magic. We pride ourselves on innovation and put our readers at the heart of everything we do.



  • Scheduling meetings and liaising with other departments & media
  • Assisting publicists with their campaigns and events
  • Keeping things running smoothly in a fast-paced environment when your colleagues are juggling various priorities


Ready to kick-start your career in publicity? We’d love to hear from you. Please apply with a CV and Cover Letter by midnight on Wednesday 17th August.

As part of your cover letter, please tell us about a recent campaign that caught your attention – it doesn’t have to be book related – and why you thought it was successful (in no more than 250 words).

Please state in your application that you found this role through Creative Access.

We’re currently experimenting with hybrid working and involving colleagues across the business to shape our future ways of working. The needs of our teams and individuals are different, so we’re not taking a one-size-fits-all approach. While our offices are places to connect, collaborate and celebrate with colleagues, we recognise that flexibility about where you work is just as important for doing your best work and for your wellbeing.
