This role has huge potential for career growth for committed candidates, and will suit either a production assistant looking for career growth into producing or a junior edit assistant looking for more experience in an independent working environment.

A driver’s license and coffee/ hospitality experience are ideal, but not essential. A keen interest in art, film, music, fashion, design, television & advertising would also be advantageous.
