About Egmont Publishing

At Egmont, we aspire to make all children proud readers through our broad portfolio of inclusive children’s books and magazines.

Egmont Publishing is the biggest children’s specialist publisher in the UK, reaching an average of one million children a month.

Egmont is home to some of the most cherished children’s characters, including Winnie the Pooh, Thomas & Friends, Mr. Men and Little Miss and Tintin. We appeal to a wide range of readers by publishing bestselling children’s books and magazines for blockbuster brands like Star Wars, Minecraft, Lego, Disney Princess and Frozen.

Our magazines Toxic, Glitch and Go Girl are must-reads for primary age boys and girls who are passionate about the latest trends and hot brands.

We are proud that so many of our titles and characters have had a major impact on British culture and the wider economy (imagine a world without Winnie the Pooh, Thomas the Tank Engine, Mr. Men or War Horse!), and that countless children have grown up reading and sharing our books and magazines.

We are here to help children discover the joy that comes with reading a good book or magazine.

Our company purpose is to make all children proud readers through our broad portfolio of inclusive, child-friendly books and magazines for children and families from all backgrounds, for every interest and reading ability. We are committed to creating opportunities for people from groups traditionally under-represented in publishing.

We believe that a diverse workforce strengthens our creativity and delivers the best commercial performance. We are, therefore, seeking applications from high quality people, whose backgrounds, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our company.

Be the best

Regular performance dialogues and learning and development opportunities will provide support to help you continuously develop your skills and competencies.

We also undertake regular staff survey’s which provides our staff an opportunity and forum to give anonymized feedback about their role and the company. This allows us to continually make improvements and develop as a Company.

We’re ethical

We design safety into the development of our products, manufacture with integrity using a workforce which is well-treated, and ensure that the paper and board we use hasn’t had a devastating impact on our lovely planet.

We’re passionate about children’s publishing

Through our editorial expertise and consumer insight, we know what children love to read. Entertaining, informing and inspiring children (and their parents) through books and magazines is what we do best. We are enormously proud of our award winning and bestselling portfolio of books and magazines for babies to young adults.
