Hachette UK expands from London base into Yorkshire

Hachette UK is opening its first Yorkshire office as the publisher expands its presence across the nationally.

The company will open its five new national offices over the next three months, with Manchester and Bristol in July, followed by Newcastle in August, then Edinburgh and Sheffield in September.

The office openings will see nearly 60 London-based staff relocate across the UK, after earlier plans were put on hold as a result of the pandemic.

Those relocating will be from a variety of roles and divisions across the publishing group, with the aim of having at least a hundred staff relocating by 2022.

The Sheffield team of seven will have dedicated office space within a flexible co-working building at The Workstation, in a move led by Sarah Castleton, Editorial Director at Little, Brown.

“I am really excited about our national offices, which I hope will provide a gateway into creative talent – authors, illustrators, translators, publishing professionals – around the UK,” said David Shelley, CEO of Hachette UK.

“We are ambitious for these offices’ growth and development over the coming years, and we really look forward to working closely with bookshops, libraries, arts organisations and charities in all the cities in which we will be based. I hope it will be a transformative venture for our publishing and widen our horizons in all sorts of exciting new ways.”
