If the buzz of the film or music industry appeals, this is definitely for you! You share the same desire and passion to_go_above and beyond_for_each and every_client. We_revel_in making the_seemingly impossible_possible, always rising to the challenge with ambition and a genuine, open attitude. You will have good attention to detail, communication skills and team work, along with flexibility; this is primarily 35 hours Monday - Friday, but travel can demand some out of hours requirements to manage work commitments and allow for other time zones.

Salary package:
* Competitive salary DOE (circa £26,000-£33,000 pa)
* Healthcare cash-back scheme
* Wellness programme
* Employee discounts
