Our client is a world leading FMCG and entertainment company with an enviable and much loved portfolio of brands.
It’s a global business and has been delighting families for generations with its range of products and programmes.
We are pleased to be recruiting for 2 roles in our client’s Legal & Business Affairs division, which supports EMEA and AsiaPac.
One role is for a media lawyer with TV distribution licensing experience and the other role requires a media lawyer with location based entertainment/live events experience ideally.
For the TV Distribution role, we are seeking a lawyer with at least 2 or 3 years’ PQE and television distribution and/or licensing experience to manage Television and Home Entertainment contracts for a broad range of exciting brands.
For the location based entertainment/live events role, you will have at least 3 years’ PQE and have primary responsibility for managing and negotiating agreements for live events, attractions and other location-based entertainment deals throughout the world for a broad range of our clients brands. This position is within the Entertainment group which handles all matters relating to our client’s activities in motion picture, television and digital content production and distribution, music, and live events and attractions.
Both roles will be based in our client’s new offices in Berkshire (less than 15 minutes by train from Paddington). There is flexible working (working from home) on offer, including “activity based working”. Currently employees work 6 days every month from a location of their choice (home, coffee shop etc.). This is also likely to be reviewed in light of the current pandemic.
You will be part of a small team of lawyers based in Berks but with a reporting line to the requisite legal team in the US (Los Angeles). Although you will be part of a wider Legal & Business Affairs team (there are lawyers in Asia, LA and New York), you will need to be comfortable working autonomously as you will have a remote working relationship with your direct line manager in LA.
You will enjoy a varied and commercially strategic role and must be comfortable building relationships across the business. The business is continuing to grow. As such, both positions may evolve over time as our client’s business and legal needs change and may include Legal & Business Affairs deal support beyond the day to day – such as production, consumer products, location based entertainment/television, new media, agency and marketing work.
We want to hear from people who are excited by a challenge, want to be rewarded for performance and who are motivated to make things happen.
