You know the world of sales and business development inside out, your understanding of the film and animation industry is second to none. Keen to network and build new relationships and grow existing ones, you’re all about people.

You’re always ahead of the curve too. You know what’s trending right now and, even better, you know how to capitalise on those trends and turn them into cash. You’re a really driven person, so you’re always pushing for the next big thing. You’ll fit in perfectly here.

  • At least five years relevant experience within an agency or production environment, selling cutting-edge brand, marketing and comms content
  • A proven track record of success in business development, sales, or account management
  • Strong knowledge and passion for the moving image, including an understanding of client needs and the production process
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to build rapport and influence key stakeholders
  • Ability to think strategically, analyse market opportunities, and develop innovative solutions

  • Exceptional presentation and public speaking abilities
  • Proficiency in CRM software, Microsoft Office Suite, and other relevant business tools
  • Willingness to travel as needed for client meetings and industry events

Get to know us…

We’re one of the most unexpectedly all-round capable communications agencies that’s been on the go for years – ever since our head honcho set up shop in a shed back in 1980, in fact.

Since then, we’ve made it our mission to make anything possible for our many and varied clients, putting our creative flair into delivering strategic communication campaigns, digital solutions, film and videos, events, exhibitions, and a whole lot more in between.  We’ve grown a lot, but we’ve kept everything that made us great, back from the very day we first started out. Our global HQ and largest studios are smack bang in the middle of the UK and well worth a visit to see for yourself!

Hang on, there’s more…

The role will be based primarily in London, Covent Garden but there will be times when you’ll need to work from our other places and undertake other related commercial duties both in the UK and overseas. Flexibility is key!

We’re a friendly team. We really, really welcome anyone who wants to become part of a brilliant company. If you’re passionate with a cracking drive to deliver on our ‘anything’s possible’ mindset, we’d love to hear from you!
