Application Tips:
In your own words and in your own style we would like to know how enthusiastic you are about the role/s you are applying for.

To support your application please answer the following questions in video format. However, if this is not possible, please let us know and can be open to receive in a different format if required.

• In your previous sync work, how have you maintained client relationships, researched and forged new client relationships whilst still doing regular music searches. How has this work been affected in the last two years compared to pre-pandemic working?
• With a new client meeting, how do you structure your pitch of the company and the catalogue – what would you say are the positive points of NTPM you would highlight to a client.
• Discuss the difference between BBC and BBC Studios? Plus, the ways in which you would confirm if a TV Broadcaster has an IPC Licence in place?
• If you received two urgent briefs, one for an in-prog usage on a show & one for a promo how would you prioritise these requests? How do you generally prioritise your work?

Please keep video content to no more than 8 minutes long. You can upload your media on an online cloud space that suits you and you can share the link with us directly so only we can view. Please remember to provide the right access permissions when sharing.
