What’s it like working with Icon Films Ltd?

Icon Films is a truly independent TV production company. We are looking for the inquisitive, the ambitious, creative, tenacious and the people who get things done. We work hard, we challenge our people and we provide opportunities for career development. We expect our people to take responsibility for themselves and others and work collaboratively in an ever changing, creative environment. We want to work with people who are passionate about what they, and will do it to the best of their abilities and support their colleagues to do their best work with, and for us. We promote continued development in careers from Production through to the support departments such as Finance and HR. The wellbeing of our teams is not an initiative, it is part of our culture, there is no one size fits all and so we continually review what we are doing to care for our people and their wellbeing and help our teams to care about each other. Ultimately, we are a presentation business, this is evident not only in our productions but our office space and our output. Are you up for the challenge?

Talent Management

Icon Films is proud to work with a talented and ambitious team. We offer an inspiring, creative and inclusive environment, in which to do our best work. We are committed to encouraging and supporting diversity on and off screen. Our aim is that our teams will be representative of society and each team member; whether staff, contributor, contractor or freelance, feels respected and acts respectfully to their colleagues.   For experienced Production, Location Crew, Development and Editorial speculative emails please email your CV to our Talent team.

Work Experience

With the unique role that broadcasting has in shaping and reflecting society’s values, we know that our staff and work experience placements must reflect our diverse society and will enrich our organisation. We run an ambitious and structured voluntary work experience and outreach programme across the year and encourage applicants from a variety of ages, background and locations.


We are looking for an experienced, confident and creative Director for a major new series shooting in South America in 2020.

This is an ambitious and exciting, presenter-led series, that will suit PDs with a proven track record directing high-profile talent, on a new series.

Successful applicants will need to demonstrate a genuine flair for directing ambitious natural world films, a proven track record of working with and writing for first class talent and experience delivering films for US broadcasters.

PDs will need to demonstrate an ability to lead teams in remote and sometimes challenging locations.

Directors must be experienced directing top class DOPs/Crews and have experience taking their films through edit.

This is an amazing opportunity for directors looking to work at the highest level.

Spanish / Portuguese speakers….. a bonus!
