Due to record levels of film and TV drama production in the UK, Netflix and The Production Guild have recruited a select, small group of trainees, with the right skills and experience, to work in the production accounts department on their productions across the UK.
Trainees completed four weeks of classroom training in assistant production accounting, ran by The Production Guild at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden Park. Successful trainees then trained on two/three Netflix productions over a six-month period, supporting the work of production accountants and assistant accountants. Duties included sorting and distributing paperwork, inputting data, processing payments and general office admin.
The training programme was full time. At the end of the programme, there was an opportunity for those successful to continue working for Netflix productions as a freelancer in the production accounts department.
Applicants had academic or vocational qualifications in accounting or an equivalent level of competence through work experience, for example as a cashier, book keeper or in a junior financial administration capacity.
This exciting opportunity is funded by Netflix and delivered by The Production Guild of Great Britain.
