Work hard, listen, learn and importantly enjoy it

Hi, I'm Pete

Brighton University

Once I had completed my final year at university and attained my degree I knew I wanted to make my way back to WB, however I had to have some patience and wait for an opportunity to arise. I spent 18 months working for a TV platform learning brand and media strategy and gaining valuable exposure to another side of the entertainment industry.

Once a Marketing Executive role opened up in the UK film team I jumped at the chance and thankfully got the role. Since then it’s been just over 3 years and I have recently been promoted to Marketing Manager.

What is involved in your current role at Warner Bros.?

I am responsible for the implementation and evaluation of lifecycle marketing campaigns on film titles across their theatrical and home video (including digital) new release windows.

As the marketing team we are the gatekeepers of any given campaign and work very closely with various teams including publicity, technical operations, theatrical/home entertainment sales, creative teams and external agencies as well as many other departments that number to many to mention but all work together to deliver fantastic campaigns each and every year.

Why would you recommend a Placement year at Warner Bros.?

The responsibilities and trust given to our Placement students year after year is testament to the value we put on their contribution to our team. I believe it far exceeds that of many other companies and truly gives them the skills and knowledge to build a successful career from a solid platform.

In addition to this the employment rate following the Placement years is excellent, if you work hard, prove yourself and the opportunities are there post university WB have a great track record of rewarding our past Placement students.

What was the most important piece of advice or thing you learnt during your Placement Year at Warner Bros.?

Work hard, listen, learn and importantly enjoy it. You only get one opportunity and particularly in our industry those opportunities are rare and hard to come by.
