Vertigo Distribution requires an Acquisitions Manager.

Vertigo Films is a leading UK Production and Distribution Company.

Films that we have produced and/or distributed include Streetdance, Horrid Henry the Movie, The Football Factory, Bronson, Monsters, Valhalla Rising, Top Cat the Movie and the upcoming Walking on Sunshine, Pudsey the Dog The Movie and The Unbeatables. 

This is a key, new role for someone to work within the growing UK Distribution team.

Their responsibility will be to seek out and acquire distinct and memorable films for theatrical and non-theatrical distribution in the UK.

Experience of directly working in acquisitions is useful, but not essential. 

What is essential is the experience and knowledge brought by working within the cut and thrust of  UK Distribution and/or the International Sales Marketplace. 

To understand and anticipate the mechanisms and vagaries of the UK Theatrical, VOD, DVD and TV Marketplace and what types of films can work in each area.

It is an opportunity for an individual to build on the relationships and successes of the company and to be a key component of a growing area of its business.

Salary: Commensurate with Experience.
