Commercials Agent

We are recruiting a new agent for United Agents’ Commercials Department.

The Department’s work includes traditional visual commercials and campaigns; endorsements and PR campaigns; licensing and merchandising opportunities; corporate appearances/hosting; and exploring opportunities in relation to new media/platforms and ad funded content projects across the UA talent roster of clients, from high profile to new graduates.

We need someone prepared to develop a thorough knowledge of our extensive talent list by meeting clients and attending performances. Day to day work can include suggesting clients for visual commercial castings, liaising with casting directors and setting up meetings with a very short lead-in time.

The candidate:

–       At least five years’ recent relevant experience working with actors/presenters in a talent, advertising or PR agency

–       Excellent organisational skills

–       Great communication skills

–       Team player with ability to work under pressure

–       Knowledge of new media and emerging technologies desirable

–       Sense of humour essential

Please send a CV and a covering letter to jobs@unitedagents.co.uk

**Please clearly mark your application COMMERCIALS AGENT in the subject heading**


Agent's Second Assistant – Actors Department

We’re currently recruiting a Second Assistant for one of our Senior Agents.  The successful candidate will have at least 1 years experience of working in either talent management, theatre or the film and TV industry and be used to working with speed and accuracy in a busy office environment. The role will include all aspects of talent management – dealing with clients, broadcasters, producers, publicists, casting directors and the media, helping to maintain the smooth running of the office and reporting to the Senior Agent and First Assistant.

We require an individual with exceptional organisational, written and verbal skills, a good knowledge of film, television and theatre, a can-do attitude and who is comfortable using MS Office.

Please send CV and covering email to jobs@unitedagents.co.uk

We do not accept applications or enquiries by telephone or requests for feedback.    


We focus on three 10 week long Internships over the year.  Our intention is that it’s properly structured, the intern spending a fortnight in each department.  We also set up meetings with an Agent in each department so by the time the 10 weeks is complete our Interns have a clear understanding of artist management and what it means to be an Agent.  The role attracts a nominal wage.

Because the number of applications we receive far outweigh the number of places, we are only able to accept them during specific periods of recruitment, which we advertise here.  Please do not submit CVs outside of that time, as they will not be considered .

We look for individuals who have a clear passion for the arts, are computer literate, are willing to learn and have a can-do attitude.



We no longer offer ad hoc work experience placements, instead focusing on our Intern Scheme, detailed above.
