We now have an opportunity for a talented Producer to join our team in our Deptford office, London.

This role requires at least 5+ years experience in the industry and would suit someone with a strong editorial and production management background.  You will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of production, from ideas generation and pitch writing, shoot logistics and post-production, through to delivery and distribution.

The suitable candidate will have excellent client management experience working with brands.  International filming experience is also essential along with a solid knowledge of TV and Digital platforms.  The scale and complexity of projects will vary so strong attention to detail along with an understanding of brand/client nuances is essential.
