Film & Television Floating Assistant

We’re currently recruiting a floating assistant to work across all offices in our Film & Television Department,  providing additional support and holiday cover when necessary, dealing with a wide range of clients (writers, directors, producers, technicians), producers and production companies.   The position requires someone who can multi-task in all areas of talent management, is hugely adaptable, has great attention to detail and would suit an individual keen to take the next step in their career, working closely 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 an agency or production 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 experience outlined.

Internships 

We offer two 6 month internships each year designed for those who have no previous experience either in talent management or related fields.  These internships 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.

 

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 enquiries by telephone or requests for feedback. 

 

We will store and process your personal information only for as long as is reasonably necessary for us to perform the services/activities we are undertaking and to comply with our legal and statutory obligations.
