Internships 

We offer a year-long internship in the role as an office runner, which we advertise as and when the position is available.  Our intention is that the internship is properly structured with the intern spending a fortnight in each department to really get to understand how they operate before working company-wide.

We also set up meetings with an agent in each department so by the time the initial 10 week period is complete our Interns have a clear understanding of artist management and what it means to be an agent.  They then have the opportunity to put what they've learnt into practice.  It is a paid role which is commensurate with other entry-level jobs in the industry.

Because the number of applications we receive far outweighs the number of places, we are only able to accept them during a specific period of recruitment, which is advertised here and on the PMA website. We are unable to predict when that will be as often our interns secure permanent positions before the end of their contract. Please do not submit CVs outside of that time, as they will not be considered.

 

Work Experience 

We no longer offer ad hoc work experience placements, instead focusing on our Intern Scheme, detailed above.

We do not accept applications or inquiries by telephone or requests for feedback.
