TV/MEDIA/PRODUCTION

PERMANENT

BASED LONDON

Our client is a leading entertainment company with a growing number of award winning television programmes. Through a combination of organic growth and acquisition, it has expanded and enhanced its portfolio of programmes to include a wide range of genres. Its focus is on creating high quality content and exploiting this in all media long term through securing the rights position.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a bright, experienced TV Production lawyer to join the company as Head of Legal at a time when its projected growth strategy remains substantial.

Reporting to, and working closely with the Commercial Director, you will join a small, affable Legal & Business Affairs team which you will have management responsibility for and enjoy a hugely varied role.

You will advise the business on the production life cycle from development to launch and negotiate agreements for productions. This will suit someone who wants to work in an entrepreneurial environment with real flair and personality.

Ideally this person will be private practice trained but come from and in-house production team with a good network within the industry and have some significant experience in production.
