Floating Assistant – Actors Department
We’re currently recruiting a Floating Assistant to work across all offices in our Actors Department, providing additional support and holiday cover when necessary. The role requires someone who can multi-task in all areas of talent management – dealing with a wide range of clients and directly with casting directors, producers and the media. The role requires someone who is hugely adaptable and has great attention to detail, and would suit an individual keen to take the next step in their career, working with a number of highly successful offices before becoming a permanent member of a team.
We’re looking for a candidate with exceptional organisation, written and verbal skills who has a good knowledge of film, television and books. A can-do attitude is important as is proficiency in the use of MS Office. The successful candidate will have at least one year’s experience either having worked in either an agency or casting and be happy to turn their hand to anything.
Due to the requirements of the position, we are only able to consider applicants with the required experience.

Actors Department Runner
We are currently recruiting a Runner to join our Actors Department on an 12 month contract, starting ASAP. Offering general support to the department as a whole our Actors Runner must but be happy to turn his or her hand to anything, have a strong can-do attitude and fierce attention to detail. This is a role where no week is ever the same – you could be running packages one minute to providing holiday cover on a busy Assistant’s desk the next.
The successful candidate will have a good working knowledge of the industry, be IT savvy and experience in either an actors agency or casting. While this is an entry level role it’s an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to pursue a career in talent management - many of our runners go on to secure permanent roles within the company.
Please send your CV and covering email to email@example.com with ACTORS RUNNER in the subject 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.
