  • Internship


Our client produces TV commercials and high-end brand films for some of the biggest and most iconic companies and brands in the world. They have recently launched their first direct-to-brand, focused on clients with either a very clear content strategy in place, or who do not need to work within the confines of outdated ad agencies.  The company is headquartered in London in trendy Shoreditch, with satellite offices in New York and Los Angeles and global reach. Since launching in July 2019, the company has  won clients in technology, sports, betting and gaming and financial services, and is now poised for the next part of its’ growth journey

The ideal candidate’s personality and qualifications…

  • Full MS Office / Apple software suite (Powerpoint / Keynote and Excel / Numbers)
  • Confident and articulate in person and on the phone, with good presentation skills
  • Inter-personal skills and the emotional intelligence to fit into a diverse and slick team
  • The ability to think on their feet and adapt to a fast-paced and exciting environment
  • Pro-active, self-starter and completer-finisher (takes ownership / delivery focused)
  •  Foreign languages, tech (e.g. coding / website) and social media fluency also helpful

What are the perks of working at this company?

  • This is an opportunity to take the first steps in building a career both in commercial business development and sales, and into the media production, TV and film industries
  • The company has a number of digital, TV and film projects in development and as a privately-owned business are on the cusp of building a truly global, diverse indie production company
  • Based in trendy Shoreditch, with a professional and talented team, but a relaxed, informal and fun atmosphere in the office – we take our work very seriously, but never ourselves – this is an opportunity to shape their future and join a fast-growing, dynamic company
  • They will be expected to work from 9.30am to 6.00pm most days, but upon the successful completion of their probationary period will start to have the flexibility to occasionally work from home as long as they deliver and achieve their targets
  • Metrics will be operationally focused – e.g. targets contacted (by phone and email); meetings booked and sat; campaigns run (e.g. mailouts); briefs secured and proposals submitted; projects won and delivered – and they will receive a bespoke, tailored personal development and training programme.
