Talent Agent Assistant - Gray Talent Group

Gray Talent Group is looking for a talented and driven candidate for an agent’s assistant position in our Chicago office. This is a full-time salaried position supporting the Chicago TV/Film, Commercial and Voice Over team, as well as providing support to the president of the company.

Gray Talent Group is a talent agency representing actors in film, theatre, commercials and voice overs. Founded in Chicago in 2008, we currently have offices in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. We provide a hands-on and honest approach to guiding actors through their careers and procuring exciting and artistically fulfilling job opportunities on their behalf.

AGENT ASSISTANT:

Responsibilities include (but not limited to) preparing and sending appointments/auditions, editing and delivering tapes to casting, coordinating scheduling with casting offices and actor meetings, managing actors' materials, maintaining audition tracking and databases. Familiarity with inEntertainment, Breakdown Express, and Casting Networks is a plus, but not required. Looking for a self starter with a no-task-too-small mentality. An entrepreneurial spirit is essential as Gray Talent Group mostly promotes from within for agent positions.

This is a full-time salaried position. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 6pm. However we must react quickly to requests that come in from casting directors and producers and there is after-hour and weekend work that does occur as needed, so someone with previous industry experience and understanding of the schedule/work load that representation entails is a huge plus.

Benefits include quarterly bonus considerations (for all positions including assistants), access to our corporate healthcare program, twenty days of paid vacation/sick days for the first year of employment and unlimited personal time off thereafter in addition to the office being closed during the December holidays, eight weeks of paid time off for new parents and a flexible “work from home” policy.

Applicants are ideally located in Chicago. Please note that due to union guidelines, we are not able to accept candidates who are actors or are actively pursuing a career in acting. We strongly encourage applicants from underrepresented groups to apply.
