We’re currently looking for an intern to join us here at United Agents on a paid 6-month contract. The successful candidate will primarily assist Reception and be on hand for general office admin however as their confidence and ability grows there is potential to take on more responsibility.
This position has been created to allow candidates with no experience in talent management the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in order to forge their on-going careers. Consequently, we’re actively seeking, bright, capable candidates in need of a stepping stone, with no experience or internships under their belts.
The successful candidate will have a passion for film, television, theatre or books, be IT savvy, able to follow instruction, have an eye for detail, a can-do attitude and willing to try their hand at anything.
Please send a covering email and your CV to email@example.com with INTERN in the header.
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.
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.
