Senior Producer - Creative Film Production Company
London, W1

We are a small, full-service production company that creates awesome, on the curve, short form premium branded content in the digital and PR space. We work across multiple brand sectors - from toys to travel, tech, fmcg & charity, for some amazing brands and agencies. We create both producer and director-led films – making exciting forms of micro-genre film - up-to-date with the changing viewing habits of branded content, having lots of fun on route.

We are looking for a Senior Producer at management level who has film production in their veins. Someone who is ready for the challenge of spearheading a growing small production company as we invest in your skills to bring greater productivity and quality to our work.

Working directly with the Executive Producer, you’re a producer who can craft our large director-led prestige projects as well as making sure our smaller films have the same attention to quality. 

As our workload rises and falls, you need to be able to successfully create and then shrink small production teams. You’ll have experience working in company management, keeping accounts up to date and reporting into the finance team. An exciting role in Soho, in central London.
