We're currently recruiting:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with INTERN in the header.
Agent's Assistant – Film & Television Department
We’re currently recruiting for an Assistant to work within our Film & Television Department, reporting solely to an Agent specializing in directors and screenwriters. Responsibilities will include all aspects of talent management – dealing with clients, broadcasters, producers and the media on a daily basis and maintaining the smooth running of the office.
The successful candidate will have exceptional organisational, written and verbal skills, a good knowledge of (and passion for) film, television (drama specifically) and theatre, have a can-do attitude and be proficient in the use of MS Office. Experience of working at a Film or TV production company or Literary Agency would be beneficial. As would some experience of script-reading.
Please send a covering email and your CV to email@example.com with FILM & TV in the header.
We offer two 6 month internships each year designed for those who have no previous experience either in talent management or related fields. These interships give the successful candidates the opportunity to experience life in an agency and a chance to develop skills and relationships within that arena.
We also offer a year-long internship in the role of office runner, which we advertise as and when the position is available. Offering general support to the company as a whole, 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.
Both are paid positions, on a salary 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, on Creative Access and 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.
