Jobs

We're currently recruiting:

Office Runner

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 be genuinely happy to turn their hand to 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.

 

Temps

United Agents is currently looking for experienced Temps to work across the company, in particular our Actors Department.  The successful candidates will have :

  • Experience of working in a talent agency, particularly working in an Actors department.
  • An excellent working knowledge of film, television and theatre.
  • A knowledge of existing Casting Directors.
  • Understand the nuances of working directly with Talent. Consequently, we’re actively looking at candidates who have experience of client facing work.
  • Be computer literate and technically minded, together with a good knowledge of standard software packages.
  • Be able to work quickly and accurately.
  • Have a can-do attitude, enjoy being part of a team and able to think on their feet.
  • An ability to multi-task and prioritise workload efficiently and effectively.

As many of our permanent members of staff originally started as Temps, we’re keen to develop on-going relationships and would be interested in hearing from those who perhaps are unable to Temp at present but may be interested in doing so in the future.

Please send a short covering email and CV, writing TEMPS in the subject header to jobs@unitedagents.co.uk.

We do not accept application or enquiries by telephone or requests for feedback.

 

Assistant to Senior Agent – Actors Department

We’re currently recruiting a full-time assistant to one of our Senior Actors Agents.  The successful candidate will be responsible for maintaining the smooth running of the office and will be involved in all aspects of talent management including dealing with clients,  producers, casting directors and the media, as well as processing contracts and raising invoices.

Exceptional organisational, written and verbal skills are a must, together with a good knowledge of (and passion for) film, television and theatre.  We’re looking for someone with a can-do attitude, an eye for detail and who is proficient in the use of MS Office and ideally has at least one years’ experience of working in talent management.

Please send CV and covering email to jobs@unitedagents.co.uk clearly marked ACTORS ASSISTANT in the subject header.  If you’ve recently applied for a position within the Actors department there’s no need to re-apply as your CV will be automatically considered.

 

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.
