We are looking to fill a role on our EMEA Publicity team for an Awards Director. This is a great opportunity to join a team that is spearheading promotional campaigns for series, films and documentaries that feature high production value from the brightest filmmakers and actors in the industry, using the latest technology. The Awards Director - EMEA will report to the Director of Originals Publicity - EMEA.
The ideal candidate is able to think strategically, use good judgement and make wise decisions, even when faced with ambiguity. They can articulate what they are - and are not - trying to do. They are a good listener and a real doer. They are organised, thorough and not afraid to get their hands dirty - and that will mean jumping in to handle a wide-ranging slew of tasks. They are curious, eager to learn and also to contribute effectively outside of their speciality. A good fit in the role has a candid and direct communication style; they are willing to admit to mistakes quickly and questions values inconsistent with our values.
The successful candidate for Awards Director - EMEA will have 8+ years experience organising, planning, executing awards campaigns with an agency, studio or network. In addition to a curiosity & willingness to learn about new markets, they will also have experience working on pan-European television or film award campaigns, including tastemaker events, screening series, big membership events or all-guild opportunities. They will either have experience working in the awards space or on submission paperwork. BA/BS required.
