Legal, Business Affairs & Governance

At the heart of the ITV Way is a commitment to working together and taking ownership.

And as a listed and highly regulated producer and broadcaster, we have a lot of obligations to meet - and own.

So, as well as working within the production, broadcasting, commercial and online businesses, we have central group legal functions alongside our content compliance teams. This means there are a huge variety of legal roles, all working to deliver high-profile, creative projects and initiatives. These could be anything from the making of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! to multi-jurisdictional mergers and acquisitions, cutting-edge web projects and channel launches.

There’s Group Legal Affairs who provide legal services and advice across our business. Our Broadcast Legal and Business Affairs Team are the primary legal contact for the Brand Partnerships and Gaming, Licensing & Merchandising teams but also work across the wide Commercial & Group Marketing and Direct to Consumer teams.

Our Global Entertainment and Global Distribution team manage the contractual and business affairs activities of our global sales teams.

Our UK & International Studios Legal & Business Affairs team lead across all aspects of global programme production, IP acquisition and Global Development. There’s Group Secretariat, who make sure we maintain the highest levels of corporate governance. Plus our Compliance team, who are responsible for clearing all programmes before broadcast. And finally, we have teams who deal with Data protection & Privacy, Policy & Regulatory Affairs, Rights Management, and more.

Our offices are busy, bustling, and no two days are the same - although each team has its own tight deadlines and multiple competing demands.

Overall, our team as a whole thrives in a constantly changing environment. Our biggest challenge is to support the wider business on significant commercial matters, as we work closely with stakeholders across ITV on a huge range of commercial agreements.
