      the budget at all times.
      Financial jobs might include;

      Production Accountant
    • Contracts & pay
      The media industry is a one of a kind industry, it is
      flexible and constantly changing. This means that the
      contracts its workers have are more flexible than
      traditional jobs.
      These are some of the most common contracts in
      the media industry:
      Full-time, permanent
      Part-time, permanent
      Fixed-term and freelance
      Shift work
      Office hours
      Irregular and anti-social hours pay
      On completion
    • Full-time, permanent
      You work on a full-time basis, usually 39 hours
      a week. A permanent contract means you are
      a regular member of staff entitled to company
      benefits including pensions, sick pay,
      maternity/paternity leave and holiday pay.
      The job roles most likely to be full-time,
      permanent are managerial, editorial, financial,
      creative and sometimes sales and marketing.
    • Part-time permanent
      This means you work a fraction of a full-time
      contract, once again you will have a set
      amount of hours per wee. You will also be
      entitled to the same benefits as full-time,
      permanent but on a reduced basis due to
      fewer working hours.
      The job roles most likely to be part-time,
      permanent are financial and sometimes sales
      and marketing.
    • Fixed-term and freelance
      These contracts are similar in that they are
      both temporary and will only last for a certain
      period of time. Under a fixed-term contract
      you may still be entitled to company benefits
      if outlined in your contract. However, a
      freelance worker will be responsible for their
      own arrangements in terms of pension, holiday
      and sick pay and other allowances.
      The job roles most likely to be fixed-term and
      freelance are technical, creative and sales and
    • Shift work
      This means your hours are set to a certain time
      of the day, for example, 7am-3pm or 11pm-
      7am. Shifts can include late or night work and
      are often used in places that need to be
      manned 24 hours a day, such as broadcasting
      centres (tv centres/radio centres)
    • Office hours
      Traditionally, these are Monday to Friday, 9am-
      5pm. This contract is very common for people
      working in administration and office-based
      The job roles most likely to be office hours are
      financial and sales and marketing and some
      assistants job such as research assistant.
    • Irregular & anti-social hours
      This is a little like overtime, when a person is
      paid extra money on top of their normal wages
      for working over or working unsociable hours.
      This is quite common in the media industries,
      as production work, especially on location, can
      be irregular and may involve working very
      early in the morning or late in to the night.
      These payments are an incentive to people to
      work these unsociable hours above and beyond
      their normal contracted duties.
    • Salaried
      A set annual wage that is broken down into
      monthly payments. A salary will be advertised
      as, for example, £20,000 per year, this is then
      divided by 12 to give you a monthly payment
      of around £1,666.
      The job roles most likely to be salaried are
      managerial and sometimes technical and
    • On completion
      This is also quite common in the media
      industries, especially for people commissioned
      to do work. A contract outlines what you are
      required to do and by when, and you will be
      paid the agreed fee when the work is
      completed according to the contract.
      The job roles most likely to be on completion
      are creative and sometimes technical.
