Meet our people


I love the diversity and flexibility of Emerald, plus the support for my professional development, both in legal and non-technical areas


I enjoy working for a company that truly values people. From live events, to volunteering and wellness weeks there’s always something going on that you can get involved in


We love being out and about with authors and researchers, finding out about what they are working on and how we help their research to be found, seen and used. It’s a fascinating time for academia and Emerald really empowers you to go out and be at the leading edge of that change

Customer Operations

Our service is very personal and friendly, there’s no scripts or recorded messages, we’re just encouraged to be ourselves and be genuine – that’s easy because we genuinely care about doing the right thing for our customers, wherever they are in the world

Business Technology

Being in a digital business, you work with like-minded people who just get it. It’s exciting to build new platforms and get them out to market in super quick time, as well as having experts around you so that you never stop learning


Our success wouldn’t be possible without our strong culture – especially important as the finance team support all areas of the business. Team time matters here – and very few teams can rival us for our exceptional cake baking skills!


Being in one of 11 regional teams means you are close to our customers, and able to adapt to local markets and the differing research challenges, policies and practices. I’d be bored if I worked anywhere else, the variety is what I like best


Understanding the future needs of our customers is really important. The R&D team work with many different customers to identify how we can make their lives easier and our products unique. We are excited at being empowered to go out and find better solutions and work across teams to bring them to market. There’s lots of co-creation – we don’t claim to have all the answers

Content Management

Our job is to take the research submitted by our authors and turn it into high quality finished published content – checking, proofing and making sure we bring the research to life in the best way possible. We work with many different suppliers from around the world – it truly is a collaborative effort!
