Product Development Director – Full time, London based

Acamar Films is an award-winning independent studio with a global production, distribution and licensing business, as well as a fast-developing digital broadcasting
capability, headquartered in Camden, London. The studio is looking for a Product Development Director to provide creative and strategic thought-leadership as the organisation continues to expand its licensing and rights-management activities for ‘Bing’ – its Emmy Award-winning and BAFTA nominated pre-school hit property.

Reporting to the Chief Commercial Officer, the post-holder will be expected to work collaboratively, in a results-oriented manner, with all of Acamar’s core functions (production, digital content, social media, licensing, media sales, brand management & marketing, design and operations) and will be expected to provide senior creative leadership in the development and implementation of a global product development strategy for Bing. This role will also work closely with Acamar’s key external commercial partners and licensing agents to develop an annual strategic product development plan, along with integrated marketing campaigns to produce high quality consumer products.

You will be a proven creative thinker with a demonstrable commercial track-record in both developing and successfully implementing a global product development strategy. Ideally, you will be passionate about the positive values of, as well as the need for a sensitive approach to, film and television programming for the children’s and family audience.

We’ll take for granted that you’ll have the functional skills to perform in this role. We’ll also assume that you’ll be happy to work in an ever-evolving creative and collaborative environment, and that you possess the grit and tenacity to make things happen in a complex start-up environment with grace and skill. We’re really looking for a person with integrity and the highest possible personal qualities to join our senior team in this vital role.

Why Work For Us?

Kaye Allen

Production Coordinator

“As someone who previously worked in live film, Acamar has allowed me to discover the unique and very different world of animation – something I admired lifelong from afar! As Acamar is a successful yet small company not only have I been able to exercise my existing skills, but have now also acquired a great number of new ones. Bing is presently being introduced to multiple territories and so this is a very exciting time to be a part of such a friendly and proactive team, all within a homely, bright and pleasant office space in the heart of vibrant Camden.”
