Working Title Films is one of the world’s leading film production companies in the world, with 10 Oscars under its belt. But you know all about Working Title, or should, or else you wouldn’t be reading this about Working Title Films internships programme at its London offices.
Action! (that’s the name of the intern scheme) offers bursaries of £15,000 to successful candidates.
So not only do you get to work for one of the top firms in the industry, you get a bit of cash in your pocket to help. Plus, if you live outside London ‘additional discretionary funds may be available to help with your relocation costs’.
And ‘reasonable, pre-approved travel expenses to and from London for the selection process will be reimbursed’!
Cor, this sounds like a dream employer from a world before zero-hours contracts, non-paid internships and apprenticeships whose sole purpose is to reduce the unemployment figures to provide extra hands to the private sector at no extra cost. And this means the Working Title Films internship Action! is more open to every talented applicant, not just the monied ones. But we digress.
