Assistant

A new vacancy has opened for an assistant at Peters Fraser + Dunlop to work with our broadcast agent (non-scripted) and two film/TV agents (scripted).

PFD is one of the leading agencies in London, providing specialist expertise to its clients in all aspects of publishing and media. We represent a wide-ranging list of authors, journalists, broadcasters and literary estates such as E. M. Forster, C. S. Forester, Jamie Bartlett, Jeanette Winterson, Richard Coles, and Rose Tremain.

The candidate will be a crucial part of the team and will be able to maintain strong relationships with all our clients and contacts as well as working closely with PFD’s primary agents. The role will be split between non-scripted and scripted agents and there will be scope for growth within the team with some junior agent responsibilities.

Responsibilities (including but not limited to):

  • Negotiate speaking/podcast/TV appearance fees on behalf of PFD clients.
  • Pitch PFD clients to production companies, broadcasters and speaker agencies.
  • Invoicing, tracking and chasing payments and contracts.
  • Handling a high volume of emails and calls, from clients and production companies.
  • Keep track of client CVs and new books and their publication dates.
  • Support all three agents to ensure smooth running of day-to-day tasks and provide full administrative support – acting as the first point of contact for the team.

Qualities, knowledge, skills and experience:

  • The candidate will be highly personable, trustworthy, accurate, able to multi-task, flexible, possess excellent organisational skills, and have a ‘can-do’ attitude and be a self-starter.
  • Experience preferable in the industry but not essential.
  • Passionate about books, film and television.

This will be a hybrid role with a requirement to be in the office three days a week and an option to work remotely for two. The office is in a Central London location.

Starting salary negotiable depending on experience. To apply, please send your CV and covering letter to Rosie Gurtovoy (rgurtovoy@pfd.co.uk) by Friday 1st March 2024.

PFD reserves the right to close the application process early if we have found the right candidate.
