SENIOR LICENSING MANAGER
An established production and licensing company are looking for an experienced, highly organised, strategic and professional Licensing Manager to work within its Buckinghamshire team, overseeing the UK and International M&L roll- out of an established pre-school brand.
The successful candidate will have vast licensing experience and have worked on international campaigns in the pre-school arena for a minimum of 5 years. The ability to work well under pressure and strong negotiating skills are essential, as is the flexibility to generate great results both individually and as part of a team.
A major part of this role is having an established knowledge and contact base of the pre-school licensing industry. Working within a close team and reporting in to the Managing Director, you will be directly responsible for devising and implementing the global roll-out licensing strategy.
In addition, you will manage the international agents, plus source new agencies as the brand continues to grow.
Your role will include responsibility for new business development across the company’s licensing portfolio as well as management of the UK and International licensing programme.
You will be required to manage licensee and retail relationships including holding regular meetings with licensees and key retailers, responding to all requests and working with licensees to coordinate product development, in-store launches and cross-category opportunities.
On a day-to-day basis you will be required to research and contact potential new licensees, negotiate commercial terms, implement contracts, forecasting and general administration.
Working alongside the Licensing team, you will work on design direction and branding (where necessary) and communicate and implement this across licensees to ensure coordinated design execution at retail.
You will also be involved in the expansion of the global broadcast footprint and an understanding of the international broadcast market is an advantage.
This is a diverse and challenging role and you will be working as part of an entrepreneurial team. You must be confident, creative and above all passionate.
