Careers at Faber & Faber


Commercial Executive

We are recruiting a Commercial Executive to support the Finance and Commercial Director.

The main purpose of the job is to provide regular management accounting reports for the purpose of reviewing performance. This role requires someone with excellent analytical skills and the ability to interpret large amounts of data, producing useful and practical outcomes. A keen interest in literature and reading is desirable, and the role would be suitable for someone interested in starting, or already at the start of, a management accounting qualification (the company can offer support, if this is the case). The work will involve deadlines, so the right applicant will be able to work quickly and accurately under pressure.

The role will be based in London, but the role holder will need to work in the Harlow office on occasion.
