Posted June 16th 2023

The Haworth Agency is a boutique agency with an established list of screen writers and playwrights. We are seeking an associate/junior agent to build on our success as a new agency, whilst keeping true to our principles of a bespoke and individual representation style.

This is an exciting opportunity to build a client list whilst supporting all aspects of company and agency life, both creative and business orientated.

The core activities of the agency are stage and screenwriting with a small but very active list of adaptation clients. The successful candidate will primarily build on those areas, but might also complement our client list by bringing interest in adjacent areas (e.g. directing).

Key responsibilities:

Reading/watching potential work and finding new talent.
Building and maintaining producer relationships.
Negotiating, discussing and progressing contracts.
Providing some agency admin support e.g. holiday cover and some co agenting/rights management where appropriate. Working with colleagues to build agency records, contacts and systems.

This is a full-time position mainly based in our Kentish Town offices. The role requires flexibility to attend evening events and meetings in central London plus occasional regional travel.

Required skills/experience:

Literary agency experience (e.g. assistant level) minimum 2 years. The equivalent in another area of the media (eg stage, TV) will be considered but should include negotiation, administrative and contractual work. The applicant may not already have a client list, but some experience of direct client/writer management is essential.

Creative flair and passion for the film/TV and theatre industry.
