Job Opportunity – Inside Pictures Programme Coordinator

Inside Pictures is in its 15th edition. It is a highly respected and reputed training programme, supported by some of the most successful companies in the industry. It is funded by the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme and Creative Skillset and presented by the National Film & Television School. Please consult other parts of these website for further information about the programme.

Over the course of the programme, Inside Pictures deals with over 100 applications, 20 participants from around the world, and around 100 high-level senior film executives as guest speakers in Europe and the US.


This role will be of interest to someone who:

  • Is starting out in the film business and is keen to learn about the industry, develop a range of film industry contacts, and hone their project management, marketing and communication skills;
  • Is interested in breaking into the business side of films, e.g. sales, distribution, finance.
  • Wishes to learn about training and executive development;
  • Is interested in working as an executive administrator;
  • Is looking to return to work after a career/work break.

The role involves a range of tasks and responsibilities. The Programme Coordinator has overall responsibility for certain elements of the programme including information management, event co-ordination and communication with the industry. However the Programme Coordinator will also need to muck in and do very mundane tasks in support of the team. This will include anything from getting coffee and lunches to managing RSVP lists.

The Programme Coordinator must be able to be flexible on working hours especially when dealing with Los Angeles and during the modules.

All modules and events (apart from the LA module) take place in London (the Coordinator does not travel to LA).

The Coordinator is welcome to work from the NFTS, however it should be noted that there is no permanent London office base. It is therefore essential that the Coordinator is a good communicator, meticulously organised, self-motivated and able to work alone and to strict deadlines. The Coordinator would be expected to meet with the Programme Director and Programme Manager at least once a week in London and, in addition, would be expected to come to the NFTS on several occasions, at key milestones of the programme.
