With comprehensive project management experience in educational and academic publishing (freelance and in-house), I am confident briefing, liasing with and managing the work of external vendors.
I set and maintain budgets and schedules to ensure that all projects are properly tracked, prioritised and monitored and are delivered within agreed parameters. I can manage all stages of publishing and production including copyediting and coding, design, review, proofreading, indexing, illustration and archive. I will establish workflows as necessary. 
I manage, brief and liaise with external stakeholders (authors, editorial freelancers, subject matter experts, vendors, digital developers, eBook builds) and internal teams (content learning specialists, production, sales, marketing, design, digital content and product development team). I can prepare handovers and provide guidelines for expected outcome and do a quality check on the work received.
I can manage all stages of digital content publishing from asset production, filelist generation, build, version review and sign off. I ensure version control is maintained for all digital content.
Following file-naming standards and conventions, I can file and archive project components and supply the entire package of folders at the end of the project. I will check fixed file names for assets are correct. 
I can perform any administrative duties associated with the publication.

Examples of my work
classroom print resources
eBook adaptations of science textbook components and linked digital resources of static and interactive assets
the localisation of a digital, interactive suite of science and maths lessons
a range of static assets as part of a senior digital science series from content creation to sign off for upload to online platform.
I am based in Melbourne, Australia
