Agents’ Assistant – Film & Television Department

We’re currently recruiting for a full-time Assistant within our Film & Television Department.  The successful candidate will provide support to three Agents within the department, two of whom who specialise in Book to Film rights, the other in writers and directors.  Responsibilities will include all aspects of talent management – dealing with clients, broadcasters, producers and the media on a daily basis, assisting in the drafting and checking of agreements, invoicing and maintaining the smooth running of the office.  

The successful candidate will have exceptional organisational, written and verbal skills, a good knowledge of film, television and theatre, has a can-do attitude and be proficient in the use of MS Office.  Experience in talent management would be beneficial.

Immediate availability preferred. 

Please send your CV and covering email to jobs@unitedagents.co.uk with FILM & TV in the subject header.

 

Intern

We are currently recruiting an Intern to join us on a 12-month contract, starting as soon as possible.  Offering general support to the company as a whole our intern must 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 up for getting stuck into anything.  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. 

Candidates must be available for an immediate start.

Please send your CV and covering email to jobs@unitedagents.co.uk with INTERN in the subject header.

 

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.
