UK visual effects houses call for new recruits

Thursday, October 7th, 2010 | Posted by Jim Thacker

Want to work in VFX? Try the UK. With major projects like John Carter of Mars and Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity boosting the local movie effects market, two leading British facilities have put out the call for new recruits.

This week, Cinesite opened pre-registration to its 2011 internship program. The scheme, which has been running since 2009, offers students and recent graduates the chance for on-the-job training with a view to a permanent position further down the line.

Both of the winners of the 2010 program are now working full-time at Cinesite.

Applications will be accepted from January 10, 2011, but Cinesite is encouraging applicants to visit its website now and register for the information pack.

Not to be outdone (actually, the news was announced last week), MPC has just hit the road for its European recruitment tour.

Potential employees can come to visit studio representatives at the following venues:

8 October
Munich, The Hotel Bayerischer Hof

14-15 October
Paris, The Hotel Concorde Montparnasse

26-27 October
Turin, View Conference

Anyone interested should email MPC via recruitment-roadshow@moving-picture.com, specifying the location of choice, your contact details and the job you wish to apply for. The studio will then send back a personal invitation with more details.

Details of current vacancies can be found in the jobs section of the MPC website.

    Every year studios are looking for ” new talent” That they can exploit and burn up. This time next year you’ll be out looking for a new job and someone just like you will have taken your place. It’s the new studio business model. Just a word of fair warning.
