Who we are:
DK is a British multinational publishing company, part of the Penguin Random House Group, specialising in illustrated reference books for adults, children and travel guides.
Our International Publishing & Licensing (IPL) department is a cornerstone of our global business and publishing philosophy and we pride ourselves in our international reach and depth of knowledge of all world-publishing markets and the interests of our readers everywhere.
What we’re looking for:
We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic part-time Sales Manager (3. 5 days per week) for Sales to Japan who is focussed on building on DK’s success in the market. Our ideal candidate will already have a proven track record in sales and ideally have experience of the Japanese market and culture. Knowledge of Japanese is an advantage but not essential.
It’s important you are a strong negotiator, who will be able to drive sales with our agency based in Tokyo, expanding our sales in both translation and English language export whilst thinking creatively about sales strategy.
A good head for numbers is a must, as well as the ability to analyse industry-wide data and trends. To thrive in our environment, you will enjoy working as part of a team in a busy department and be willing to react swiftly to the ever-changing demands of publishing and business requirements.
To succeed in the role, you will demonstrate strong commercial instinct, have proven relationship management skills (with both internal and external colleagues) and be a resilient individual able to work under pressure. A confident, honest, professional individual who is a strong communicator across all mediums of communication and understands the global markets and customers' needs are also key attributes for success.
Responsibilities will include:
