Manager, Series Events - Originals Publicity
NetflixLos Angeles, CA
Full Time Job
Fueled by the broad appeal of being able to instantly enjoy unlimited movies and TV shows, Netflix has grown to have over 117 million streaming members in over 190 countries. This is a great opportunity to join a team that is spearheading promotional campaigns for such a fast growing and highly admired company, with a chance to strategize, plan and execute events alongside a team that is working on films and series that feature high production value from the brightest filmmakers and actors in the industry, using the latest technology.
The Manager for Series Events will play a key role in strategizing, executing and managing events for Netflix Original Series. The Manager will work alongside the team that is helping to create, shape, and manage campaigns for all original comedy, drama and unscripted titles, meaning that he/she will have to be in sync and show a curiosity about promotional efforts and contribute to improve campaigns with new and innovative event ideas. The ideal candidate has worked handling events for television studios, brands or agencies. He/she will be able to communicate with showrunners, talent representatives, agencies, executives and production partners on efforts. They can formulate and manage a budget, and give visibility into their process successfully. Pack your bag because both domestic and international travel is a requirement.
She/he is able to make wise decisions, even when faced with ambiguity and think strategically. He/she can articulate what they are - and are not - trying to do. He or she is a good listener and a real doer. They are organized, thorough and not afraid to get their hands dirty - and that will mean jumping in to handle tasks that range from hiring an agency to plan an event, to maintaining and updating guest lists, to booking a venue themselves for an event and working a check-in table. The responsibility is wide-ranging. They collaborate well with partners that range from the publicists overseeing global strategy to content/programming to marketing to social to product and beyond. Strong candidates can handle a vast amount of work and they are eager to learn. They are curious and also contribute effectively outside of their speciality. A good fit in the role has a candid and direct communication style, they are willing to admit to mistakes quickly and questions values inconsistent with our values.
The successful candidate for Manager, Series Events will have at least 7 years of entertainment experience organizing, planning, executing and staffing events at a studio, agency or with a film entertainment brand. He/she understands the industry and the strategy behind developing a successful publicity campaign for a film release. This person will ideally have deep relationships within the television and event industry, be familiar with the key theaters and venues in both NY and LA and have experience working at the major festivals and
awards. He/she will have experience in creating and managing film premieres and events including red carpet arrivals, managing influencer invite lists, build out and management of the theater as well as creating exceptional party environments and launch stunts.
The right candidate will have experience leading a team of event pros, collaborating with cross functional teams and bringing new ideas to the table that reach beyond traditional series premiere events.
