Experience / PQE
Newly Qualified, PQE 1 - 3 years
Contract Type

My client is a uniquely positioned organisation within the media sector. They remain an independent production company and with this retain creative freedom, autonomy and their strong culture. They also have the backing of a large US Studio which offers financial stability along with the muscle of one of the markets leading distributors. On top of this they are steeped in history, with the heritage and integrity which affords them the trust of broadcasters and the like to produce some of the highly calibre, highly acclaimed content.

My client is looking to add to their small in-house team. You will work with some of the highest calibre talent in the industry and will do a true legal and business affairs role. The main responsibilities will be to offer support on the financing structures, tax incentive schemes and management of productions - beginning to end.

The ideal candidate will have scripted production experience, however my client is willing to be flexible if a candidate can demonstrate a real passion for working in media, in particular within production. In this case you will need to have a completed either a general commercial or IP seat during your training contract. This role would suit someone who is between newly qualified and 1 year PQE. In-house experience would be ideal but not a pre-requisite.

You will be first and foremost an excellent technical lawyer but will have the ability to adapt your style and approach to suit a broad range of characters within the industry and business. You will have an interest in passion and in particular creating content. You will be organised, dynamic and able to project manage to a high standard.
