Rare opportunity for a highly organised individual with a keen interest in TV development and a strong desire to work in TV drama to join an independent drama production company that develops and produces original, innovative television drama.

Key features include:

  • Extensive diary management; scheduling meetings, appointments and calls
  • Managing the MD's inbox and identifying anything that needs actioning urgently
  • Providing support documentation, script summaries and prep for meetings
  • Coordinating the development slate and supporting the development team when necessary
  • Supporting in organising events and awards management coordination

The ideal candidate:

  • Experience in a comparable role as an Agents Assistant or PA
  • Previous drama production experience and an interest in development
  • Highly organised with the ability to be pre-emptive and forward thinking
  • Strong willingness to learn, adaptable, hardworking, trustworthy and personable
