Cinesite has transitioned to a flexible way of working, embracing workplace shifts spurred by the pandemic.

Going forward, we don’t see remote-working as something that needs to come to an end; we will be embracing it. Our aims are simply to work with the best talent, making the best VFX & animation.  In short, the blended model of working-from-home mixed with working in the studio is here to stay!

This shift will provide Cinesite London, Montreal & Vancouver employees the opportunity to choose how they wish to work moving forwards, with these options:

  • HOME BASED to work remotely indefinitely
  • HYBRID BASED adopt a hybrid way of working from both home and local studio when possible, while adhering to all local health guidelines
  • OFFICE BASED work in-person in the Cinesite studios when possible while adhering to all local health guidelines

Irrespective of the choice Cinesite employees wish to make, we will provide opportunities for the team to connect, including all-team meetings to provide transparency and motivation as well as seasonal opportunities to socialise with colleagues and friends. We will retain our physical offices for employees in London, Montreal and Vancouver for in-person collaboration and special projects.

“After everyone settled into their new work-from-home environment, we quickly realized we could be even more creative and effective in delivering high-quality series and feature film work, when adopting a flexible way of working,” notes Cinesite’s Chief HR Officer, Sashka Jankovska. “Our staff are at the core of Cinesite’s success, everyone is different and we celebrate that. By allowing individuals to work according to their own working styles, we’ll get the best out of everyone, rather than forcing them to conform to another person’s style, at their detriment.”

Cinesite will continue to listen to and support the needs of our staff and, with some forward planning, we are in the very best position to (continue to) offer fantastic opportunities to talented individuals located near and far and that’s really exciting.

Ultimately, it means things will never be the same again for our teams, opening up opportunities far outside of the current studio bases in London, Montreal & Vancouver. We think this will benefit staff wellbeing, geographically inclusive recruitment, and will reduce our environmental impact.
