In his latest update, our CEO Nigel Portwood discusses the importance of making maths more accessible, enjoyable, and relevant in the real world, in order to unlock the power of maths and celebrate all the opportunities it can bring. '[Maths] provides a key foundation to a child’s whole educational journey, and underpins so many aspects of our lives, often without us even realizing it. Despite what we may presume—and indeed, what many may fear—maths isn’t just about algorithms, symbols, and sums. At its heart, it’s about problem solving, building patterns, and spotting connections. It can help us to validate facts and bring stories to life by providing a sense of perspective.'

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews, fairly basic questions. If you’ve done production for a scholarly publisher, you know what to expect. Overall the people seemed friendly, and were interested in any experience working with offshore production suppliers.
