Penguin Ventures is looking for a Licensing Assistant to join our award-winning team.

We’re looking for someone who’ll thrive on keeping a busy team running, facilitating a smooth schedule of meetings, events, correspondence and paperwork.

On a day-to-day basis, this might include managing the Director’s diary, scheduling international meetings and calls, coordinating agendas and minutes, being the key point of contact for visitors, and organising travel and accommodation as well as being the key contact point for events such as Brand Licensing Europe.
