Job Description
It's an amazing time to be joining Netflix as we continue to transform entertainment globally. Members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on any internet-connected screen. Members can play, pause and resume watching, as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, and can change their plans at any time.

The Team You'll be Joining: Photo & AV Studio UK

The Photo & AV Studio team has the enviable position of straddling two worlds in the entertainment industry: Photo & AV asset creation & global communication strategy. We specialize in capturing and creating photo & video assets that shape, enhance and support our publicity campaigns for our Netflix content including Series, Films, and Non-Fiction (Documentaries & Reality).

Simply put, we produce the content that compels people to watch our shows through earned media! We tell the story before the audience can watch the story.

The Role

The role requires a high level of operation, creativity, strategic thinking, judgment, an inquisitive mind, innovative and self motivated personality, and a succinct communicator with a strong project management background. Being a team player with a positive attitude and willingness to be flexible and get the job done is essential, as is the ability to strategically plan and execute multiple projects simultaneously to support on PR campaigns, driven by A/V materials, for Netflix titles - photography, videos, the next big thing. Our content stands out and makes an impact on the industry and consumers alike, compelling them to watch Netflix content.

What photos will ensure a magazine spread? What video will get audiences and publishers excited about a new show? How do we make a talking head interview visually pop? How can we be smart and tell different stories across different countries through visual assets? How do we engage with our audience in a space in which they consume their content whether it be short form videos on social media platforms such as Tik Tok or Instagram or long form platforms such as YT.

You'll be working with TV/film productions, talent, filmmakers and publicity events as part of the Netflix PR team in the UK. Building relationships as well as working autonomously in a fast paced environment will be key to success.

We don't focus on job titles at Netflix but rather hire outstanding high performers who act responsibly on the resources and freedom they are given to do their work. The ideal candidate will use sound judgment to make wise decisions, think strategically and drive their colleagues to do the same. Read our culture memo to learn more.
