Jenny Slater

Deputy Production Manager, Academic

4K2A1656-Edit-EditJob description: Direct responsibility for a list of academic titles combined with team lead and support for our growing number of project managers. With the wide breadth of humanities and science titles in production, another part of the role is ensuring that our high-quality editorial resources keep pace with needs.

Favourite book: Nevil Shute’s On the Beach, not as a literary gem but for its haunting portrait of humanity, its portrayal of the individual’s value of time, and for introducing the idea of planning a garden that no one will ever see. 

Hobbies: Time with family, organising community events and making the most of any chance to get out and about in the lovely area we live in.

If I were an animal, I would be an … elephant  –  loyal, calm, strong as an individual but at one with the herd.
