Agent’s Assistant with additional Floating Assistant responsibilities – Film, TV & Theatre Department – 12-month fixed term contract


Where: Located in the heart of London’s bustling and creative Soho, United Agents is one of London’s leading talent agencies encompassing the worlds of film, TV, books, theatre, and comedy.

Who: We have a unique opportunity within our busy Film, TV & Theatre department for an Agent’s Assistant with additional Floating Assistant responsibilities. The ideal candidate will have high level organisational skills making them an effective multitasker and possess the ability to remain calm whilst working at a fast pace.

This is a 12-month FTC, and we expect on average around 50% of this successful candidate’s time will be focussed on giving dedicated support to the Agent with the other 50% providing support to other members of the team on an ad hoc basis.

The role requires someone who is hugely adaptable, has great attention to detail and would suit an individual keen to take the next step in their career, working with a number of high-profile offices.

Agent’s Assistant key responsibilities:

  • Providing administrative support to the Agent
  • Diary management for the Agent
  • Handling a high volume of emails and calls, both from clients and producers
  • Processing contracts, issuing invoices, and keeping track of monies
  • Researching upcoming projects and actively putting clients forward for suitable projects
  • Script reading on behalf of Agent/clients
  • Ensuring client CVs are up to date online

Key skills:

  • High level attention to detail and organisational skills
  • Ability to work accurately at speed
  • Conscientious, discreet, and reliable
  • Outstanding communication skills
  • Highly numerate and computer literate
  • Can-do attitude
  • A passion for film, television, and theatre

Floating Assistant responsibilities:

Our Floating Assistants offer general support to our Film, TV & Theatre department and will be happy to turn their hand to anything. This is a role where no week is ever the same – you could be running packages one minute to providing holiday cover on a busy Assistant’s desk the next. The ideal candidate will be interested in writers and directors. It is desirable but not essential if you have had some prior industry experience and can demonstrate a true passion for film, television & theatre.

We are looking for a candidate with excellent organisational, written and verbal skills with a good knowledge of film, television, and theatre. A can-do attitude is important, as is proficiency in the use of MS Office.

Closing date: 5pm, Friday the 5th of July 2024.

As part of our commitment to building a diverse workforce we encourage applications from those who are currently unrepresented in our own workforce and wider industry. However, you identify and whatever your background, we welcome you to apply.
