Supplier Coordinator

OUP have been a leading figure in publishing for more than 500 years. We’ve always been a forward-looking organization, maximizing the technology of the time, and the digital revolution is bringing enormous change, fast. That same spirit of adventure and entrepreneurialism is critical to our future success. In a fast-changing publishing landscape, OUP welcomes the inquisitive, the inventive, and the ambitious; people who challenge the conventional, and pioneer the possible.

About the Role

In this newly created role you’ll be responsible for ensuring that the suppliers are effectively coordinating activities to update products to OUP’s quality standards. You’ll have the opportunity to work with both internal and overseas external stakeholders whilst being part of a collaborative team where learning and development is encouraged.

Key duties of the role will include:

  • Support the suppliers with schedules and budgets
  • Support the suppliers in evaluating performance discrepancies and collaborate on solutions
  • Analyze and resolve product related problems in conjunction with suppliers
  • Provide guidance, training and support to suppliers
  • Stakeholder management; ensuring expectations of all parties are managed, stakeholders feel supported and suppliers are getting what they need to effectively meet stated requirements
  • Analyze and resolve workflows issues and uphold best practice.

We are currently thinking through how we use our offices in the future and are open to discussing flexibility within this such as a blend of office and home working. We expect this role to require a minimum of 1 day per week in the Oxford office but require someone willing to come into the office when required.

Please note the official title for this role is Corrections Controller.

  • Some publishing knowledge and/or interest

  • To be a team player with great self awareness.


  • Knowledge and/or experience of print and digital production processes
  • Experience in supplier and performance management
  • Experience of working with stakeholders multi-nationally.


We care about work/life balance here at OUP. With this in mind we offer 25 days’ holiday that rises with service, plus bank holidays and Christmas closure (3-days) and a 35-hour working week. We are open to discussing flexibility in respect of working hours and the use of technology to support regular remote working, dependent on role. We also have a great variety of active employee networks and societies. 

We help make your money go further by contributing to your pension up to 12%, offering loans and savings schemes through our partnership with Salary Finance, in addition to travel to work schemes and access to a wide range of local discounts.
