Alumni - Leah Jespersen - BA Publishing Media 2018

I graduated from the Publishing Media BA in 2018, and began working as Production Assistant for Head of Zeus soon after graduating. The course gave me such a good understanding of the cross-departmental co-operation that goes into making a book, and it really helped me feel confident in what I could contribute to a team. At Head of Zeus, I was given the opportunity to work on the production of many exciting books, including The Colour of Time by Dan Jones, Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver and The Three Body Problem by Liu Cixin.

I am now a Production Controller for Arcturus, specialising in children's activity books and children's classics. My job is to ensure that the books we produce are of the utmost quality and that they reach our customers on time. If you wish to make your love of books and creativity a career, Oxford Brookes is a great place to start.
