We want to get a feel for what makes you, well, you. We also want to make sure this is a place you’ll thrive, so we’ll be looking for signs for your interest in books, knowledge of the changing needs of our industry, and strengths and passions (not just role competencies).

Once you have joined us you can be sure that we will inspire you and develop yourtalents.

We look for people who are great at lots of things, love big challenges and welcome change. We’re looking for people who are good for Penguin Australia—and not just for right now, but for the long term.

We need talent that want to bring their creative spirit to work and share their ideas so that everyone can have access to great stories.

We hope that you have a genuine passion for our businesses.

We like working with people who are inspired by what they do.

We expect individuals to flourish in teams, as well as on their own.

We encourage our people to develop their careers and proactively seek out opportunities.

We look for people that want to make a contribution and add value to our businesses, and have a flair for innovation and creativity.
