Due to record levels of film and TV drama production in the UK, Netflix and The Production Guild of Great Britain, have announced the launch of the biannual Netflix Assistant Production Accounting Scheme (NAPATS) which will give people with accountancy skills the opportunity to work in the production accounts department on Netflix productions across the UK.
Taught by industry professionals, Netflix are looking to recruit 12 trainees to become Assistant Production Accountants providing them with essential training. Trainees will initially complete four weeks of classroom training in assistant production accounting, run by The Production Guild. They will continue their training over the period of a year on Netflix productions, supporting the work of production accountants and assistant accountants. At the end of the programme, there is the opportunity to continue working for Netflix productions as a freelancer in the production accounts department.
“Working in partnership with The Production Guild on the Netflix Assistant Production Accounting Trainee Scheme forms part of Netflix’s long-term commitment to the UK production community. We greatly value the work of the organisation and look forward to working together to increase support and provide greater opportunities for freelance production crew”.
Kelly Philips, Finance Director, Production Finance (Original Series UK), Netflix
“We are thrilled to be working with Netflix, a very important player in the UK production industry, who are helping to develop new talent in UK production accounting”.
Alison Small, CEO, The Production Guild
The Netflix Assistant Production Accounting Training Scheme is now in its third year and has trained over 20 new entrants to enter film and high-end television production over the past two years. Applications from people who are currently under-represented in the industry – women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities – are particularly welcomed.
