Equity recognises Unite as the staff group union
Equity is the UK trade union for professional performers and creative practitioners. Equity is respected as one of the most powerful entertainment unions in the world, and at the heart of the UK trade union movement. We are a growing union of around 47,000 members, proud of our strong organising and campaigning record. Our members are mostly freelance- with many working in greenfield and emerging areas in audio, videogames, dance and the light entertainment sectors. By contrast, most British TV, film and theatre are made on union agreements with minimum terms driving forward industry standards on everything from pay to dignity at work. The Union has a team of staff in offices across the UK who have a wealth of experience and expertise when it comes to advice and representation. They are able to deal with the issues raised by members working in all areas of the industry whether it be a major feature film, a theatre in education show, radio voice overs, a circus act or any other live or recorded work.
We are seeking to appoint a Distribution Assistant to join the Equity Distributions Service team, based in our Recorded Media Department.
In this role you will coordinate, and process contractual royalties and other secondary payments collected by the union for performers engaged in a wide range of productions, from film and TV, streaming and audio. The position will also be required to provide some administrative cover for our reception team and will provide a professional, efficient, and responsive service when liaising with members, performers and their representatives, external contacts and broadcasting organisations.
To be successful in the role you will need excellent organisational skills with the ability to pay close attention to detail and analyse data. You will be adept at problem solving and possess good communication, customer service, and IT skills. This role would suit an initiative-taker and self-starter with the willingness and ability to carry out a diverse range of tasks independently and as part of a team.
The post requires a commitment to the role and work of Trade Unions.
Closing Date: 24 November 2022
