Work hard, have fun and most importantly, don’t take a second of the experience for granted!

Hi, I'm James

Student at the University of Loughborough

I applied for a placement for multiple reasons, one of which is of course the fact that I am a massive film fanatic and to say I have a passion for the industry is an understatement. Yet I would say the main reason I applied was because I knew the company really valued interns as an integral part of the team.

Describe a normal day in the office…

The day will always start with checking my emails to see if there are any urgent tasks that need to be completed. From there, I will then go onto pursue my weekly tasks which could be anything from writing briefs in order to keep the business informed of ongoing Franchise activity, to reaching out to different divisions and territories to see if they would be interested in pursuing certain marketing opportunities. Although I have my set routines, day to day the role always presents new tasks and challenges, which keeps the job unpredictable and exciting!

What do you enjoy most about your role?

The best part about this role is that it is cross divisional. The job allows you to liaise and work with many areas across the business, meaning you gain an interesting insight into divisions across the company. This can be extremely informative in helping you to determine a future career path!

What’s your favourite WB film/TV show/game?

Caught between F.R.I.E.N.D.S and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, please don’t make me choose between them.

What’s been a highlight for you so far?

I feel like the role as a whole is such a great experience. It’s really nice to know that you are in a department that relies on you and gives you real responsibilities. The company screenings are pretty awesome too.
