TV - CONTENT ACQUISITION
FTC UNTIL NOVEMBER 2022
We have a fantastic opportunity for a media lawyer to work with a friendly, high-performing Legal and Business Affairs team within a much-loved TV business on a FTC until 25th November 2022, initially.
The Business & Legal Affairs team provides all the business and legal affairs support for the TV business from commissioning and content acquisition through to distribution.
The team is fully integrated within the business and works very closely with commissioning, programming, commercial and other teams.
The role is primarily providing legal support and advice (and all associated contract drafting and negotiation) to the content Global Acquisitions teams, across all channels and on demand services.
* Providing support and advice to the Global Acquisitions teams.
* Working primarily on acquired content across all channels and genres.
* Drafting all contracts relating to acquisitions (including distribution, pre-sale acquisitions, programme licensing, studio and output agreements).
* Supporting the BLA team more broadly in respect of commercial projects from time to time.
The successful candidate will be an excellent negotiator, presenter and influencer and will need to have an understanding of linear and non-linear programming rights and TV platforms.
You will have an understanding of copyright and the legal framework relating to rights licensing, together with experience working on acquisitions in a media organisation or private practice. Other commercial experience in a media organisation would also be useful.
This is an amazing opportunity for someone with a passion for TV to work within a dynamic, fun and inclusive team.
