Multi-award-winning creative agency seeks a Partnerships Manager with experience of entertainment-led brand partnerships (ideally in film), in addition to a strong client-servicing background.

This role is initially for six months but with the strong potential of it going permanent after six months if its suits both sides.

The agency

A fast-paced, passionate bunch, this agency thrives on bringing to life award-winning creative, strategic and multi-faceted international campaigns.

The agency has an enviable ethos: to create a culture and environment where everyone can succeed professionally and personally and where everyone’s work / life balance is truly valued and respected.

People absolutely love working there.... they are proud to say that many of their stars have been part of the agency family for the best part of a decade.

The client

For the past nine years, the agency has been the go-to partnerships and promotions shop for this instantly recognisable international film company.

The agency works across the studio’s biggest cinema releases, developing ground-breaking, multiplatform brand partnerships designed to drive Box Office sales.

The Partnership Manager required

The agency is looking for an outstanding PM with a proven track record to help them carry on delivering innovative campaigns.

On each release, they work with the client team to define the partnership strategy and approach for the UK, identifying target brands that meet their requirements (more often than not these sit in the non-traditional space). The agency’s remit spans pitching, negotiation and deal finalisation through to facilitating activation of the campaign.

The role and responsibilities

The Partnerships Manager will support the Partnerships Director in the smooth running of the account, with frequent contact with the clients both in the UK and the International team based in LA.

You’ll be responsible for identifying potential brand partners, aligning with the film company’s strategy, securing pitch meetings, negotiation and ultimately closing the deal.

You will also be required to support in managing the campaign through to completion, including routing artwork for approval with the team in LA.
