Share your love
Full-time role / work from home

Who we are

  • A very fast growing (5x) international media production agency active in 100+ countries
  • Storytailors helped produce content for platforms and networks such as Netflix, Discovery, BBC, Amazon, ITV, Al Jazeera and others
  • Say the BBC wanted to film in Lima or Seoul. We have a local producer (+team) in town who assists them with logistics, contacts, contributors
  • We do not send someone to the countries we are active in, we use local producers in each country

What the job is about

  • Say a client gets in touch asking for help on a shoot in a certain country (like South Korea). You talk to the client, contact our team on the ground and jump on a call. You do a budget together with the SK team and, if the shoot happens, you manage it remotely. You coordinate the shoot, step in when needed, send the final bill
  • Connecting our clients to the local producers in places like Peru, Bolivia, the US, Iceland, Portugal, Romania, Korea and many others. And making sure productions happen as agreed
  • One day you could be coordinating a shoot at the Parthenon, the next you may be discussing a commercial in Santiago de Chile
  • You would not have to travel on location, you would coordinate the local crew and liaise with the client

Main skills:

  • Proficient in English (both spoken and written) – C2 level is a must
  • Thorough Excel knowledge is a must. You have to manage changing budgets
  • Past experience in media and/or production
  • International knowledge and experience are a plus

Work duties include:

  • Taking emails and phone calls from potential clients (foreign production companies and international journalists) and converting them into paid assignments
  • This is not cold calling. The leads are generated by us, the production manager/producer needs to talk to the clients and our local network and make the projects happen
  • Liaising with production people around the world to execute the assignments
  • Handling budgets, payments and profitability for each project
  • The production jobs can be commercials, documentaries, current affairs pieces (rarely feature films)
  • No travel involved

Please note the job interview will include an English language test and an Excel task related to day-to-day activities.
