Junior Agent / Agent - Entertainment Talent
London
Salary Competitive DOE

Handle Recruitment is working with a well- known entertainment talent agency to source an Agent to join their team in London.


Key responsibilities will include:

  • Developing and looking after an active roster of leading artists within their respective fields
  • Pursuing new business opportunities for the agency by primarily adding value to existing artists and examining other revenue streams for the company
  • Acquiring new talent, both established and emerging, for representation by the Agency

The ideal candidate will have:

  • A great network of current contacts, the ability to manage a busy roster of Artists
  • Experience as an Agent in a comparable organisation
  • Confident and proven sales ability, with excellent negotiating skills and impeccable attention to detail
  • A roster of their own Artists to bring to the agency would be of interest but by no means essential
  • A good knowledge and understanding of the industry, with particular focus on Presenters, Performers, Writers and Comedians
  • A willingness to pitch in across the board and input ideas collaborating with a team of existing Agents
  • In addition to the working week there will be some evening and weekend work liaising with current, future clients and industry contacts


This is an outstanding opportunity for anyone looking to join a company with a great reputation.
