Paid Internship Opportunity at Olsberg•SPI

Olsberg•SPI is a leading international strategy adviser to governments and businesses in the film and television sectors (www.o-spi.com). We are interested in adding an additional resource to our London-based team: a paid analyst/researcher intern who would support our work across a range of film consultancy projects. Previous occupants of this role have broadened their knowledge of and networks in the industry and gone on to solid creative and business careers in film and other areas, including remaining with our firm.

Although this is an entry-level position – we don’t expect prior consultancy knowledge – we are looking for individuals with some work experience in related areas, and ideally a post-graduate degree. The degree need not be in an audio-visual-related field, but applicants should have a sharp mind as well as a close interest in the film, television and games industries and the wider digital media sector.

Basic duties include assisting with the following:

  • researching information on the Internet and via telephone
  • analysing and synthesising research results
  • creating and organising presentations
  • participating in meetings with clients
  • brainstorming solutions with the team
  • writing reports, and
  • supporting the team with organisational and administrative tasks.

The ideal candidate would possess as many of these qualities as possible:

  • an inquisitive interest in screen-based media
  • organisational skills, initiative and confidence
  • good interpersonal skills, especially when dealing with clients
  • flexibility and willingness to work in a relaxed but purposeful work environment
  • clear and concise writing skills
  • computer skills in basic word processing, spread sheet and presentation software, 
  • language skills and/or experience living in different cultures.

We are flexible in that this could be a full or part time position (minimum 3 days a week) and we are also looking for a commitment of up to 6 months.
