Hi, I'm Tom

University of Brighton

After finishing my placement year at WB, I returned to Brighton to complete the final year of my Finance and Investment degree. A few days before my graduation ceremony, I received an email from the WB recruitment team with regards to an available position in the Commercial Finance team. I jumped at the chance to apply... and here I am today!

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

The primary focus of my role involves working with retailers on consignment trading models. I get to directly liaise with these companies as well as internally with a variety of divisions within WB.

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

A placement year at WB is something I would hugely recommend! It’s a fantastic opportunity to work within one of the largest entertainment companies in the world, and you will be given lots of responsibility as well as guidance from some of the best in the business. The great news is that there are a wide range of roles to apply for, so there is something out there for everybody!

My advice for applying would be to take your time and put thought into your answers on the application form. WB receives a lot of applications for their placement opportunities, so make sure your answers are memorable. I was lucky enough to be involved in selecting my replacement, and I can’t tell you how many School or University projects I read about, and it does get repetitive. So take your time, be thoughtful and unique with your answers, and you’ll stand out from the crowd!

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

Never be afraid to ask a question, no matter how silly or basic you think it might be! Everyone at WB is more than happy to assist you if you ever get stuck, and your department wants you to be a success so ask plenty of questions to aid your development and get the most from this opportunity!
