Book Producer (Contract)

Freelancer, Part-time · London

Your mission

London, contract work, hybrid - £300/day

About this opening

We’re looking for a creative producer to work two day+ per week on a range of unique and exciting new books aimed at the adult gifting market. This could lead to a full time position.

You'll play a key role in a team who have previously created some of the most outstanding books in this sector. 

What you’ll be doing

This will involve more autonomous work, working directly with our senior leadership team to bring entirely new kinds of personalised books to market, working with a world class team of  designers, writers and researchers. 

This would suit folks who have worked in non-fiction publishing or in any innovation functions within larger media companies. 

A little bit about you


  • Evidence of ‘hands on’ production experience shipping real products and experiences to market - yes you are organised but you also know how to quickly change tack and when and how to get directly involved in the work!

  • Evidence of managing cross functional projects to demanding deadlines and budgets inside mid sized or larger organisations

  • Evidence of directly managing a variety of creative disciplines within a single project  

  • Very strong written communication skills and ability to manage remote teams of digital contributors 

  • A passion for books and media - you need to be excited about our category of personalised books!

If possible, please provide links or portfolio pieces of example books or projects you have bought to market.

Ideally we are looking for a producer who can work remotely but also attend in person meetings in our central London Studio and occasionally in our studio in Barcelona!  If you are remote only please clearly indicate this in your cover note.

Launching successful new personalised books is both fun and challenging. We pay competitive day rates for producers, typically £300+ and up per day depending on experience, contract length and the nature of the work. 

We have a beautiful new studio in Bloomsbury where you are welcome to work from for the duration of the contract. And should you need to top up your vitamin D, we also have a studio in Barcelona 5 minutes from the Beach. 

If you’d like to help us produce some amazing new books and experiences, please send us your resume, expected day rates and any notes on upcoming availability.

About us
Oh hi! We’re delighted that you’re interested in working with Wonderbly, the UK Children’s Publisher of the Year 2021. Below you’ll find out all about us, our mission and values, and the roles we have open right now.  

Wonderbly is the world’s leading personalised publishing company. We conceive, design, promote, sell, and make wonderful books for wonderful customers all over the world.

Our mission is to make people feel extraordinarily special, and bring them closer to the people they love, through the power of personalised stories. So far we’ve shipped over 8 million books to over 150 countries. We’ve done this in just eight years, and we’re just getting started.

Getting personalised books to all those millions of customers requires a multidisciplinary team. Our wonderful people have experience across editorial design, research, production, software engineering, marketing, e-commerce, data analysis, print-on-demand manufacturing, shipping… the list goes on.

This means that Wonderbly is a collaborative and creative place to work, with lots of opportunities for growth and development across a broad range of skills.

We’re based in London, where we have a gorgeous, light-filled studio for working together. But like many digital-first companies, we have a hybrid operating model, with many colleagues working from home and further afoot much of the time.

Our values

Wonderbly’s values were born from the three qualities at the heart of ‘Lost My Name’ - our original and best-selling personalised children’s book. These values are Courage, Curiosity and Kindness. And although they naturally have a child-friendly ring to them, these are deeply human values that we believe everyone should live by.

Courage means taking calculated risks and trying things that no one else would. It means setting audacious goals, seeing them through, and being willing to be wrong.

Curiosity means investing in learning, never losing sight of the ‘WHY’. Curiosity allows us to ask silly questions, explore our blind spots, and dip into other disciplines for inspiration.

Kindness is at the heart of our culture: it’s no coincidence that deep friendships form here every day. Kindness means making space for one another, inclusivity as standard, and clear, direct communication. It does not mean “good vibes only”: the kindest conversations are often the hardest.

Equal opportunities employer

Our team is committed to providing equal opportunities for employment regardless of race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, disability, family structure, socio-economic status, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other basis (it's the law, but it's also just the right thing to do).

If you have a disability, caring duties, or any other additional needs that require consideration, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them during the application process.
