* Collaborate with regional teams in relation to co-production sales agreements.
* Advise on drafting and negotiating development agreements and option agreements with writers and other rights holders.
* Manage, motivate and develop staff including, where necessary, assisting with recruitment and assisting the Head of Business & Legal Affairs to build a high calibre team.



The successful candidate will be a qualified solicitor (or equivalent) with several years PQE.
