Due to record levels of film and TV drama production in the UK, Netflix is looking to recruit a select, small group of trainees, with the right skills and experience, to work in the production accounts department on their productions across the UK. Trainees will complete four weeks of classroom training in assistant production accounting, run by The Production Guild at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden Park. Successful trainees will then be trained on two/three Netflix productions over a six-month period, supporting the work of production accountants and assistant accountants. Duties will include sorting and distributing paperwork, inputting data, processing payments and general office admin.
The training programme is full time, for up to ten successful candidates. At the end of the programme, there may be an opportunity for those successful to continue working for Netflix productions as a freelancer in the production accounts department. Applicants must have academic or vocational qualifications in accounting or an equivalent level of competence through work experience, for example as a cashier, book keeper or in a junior financial administration capacity. They should also:
- be highly numerate and have a passion for film and TV
- have a permanent UK address and be eligible to work in the UK
Previous experience of working in an accounts environment will be taken into account when considering applications
