Former A+E Networks UK exec Rachel Job has joined UK production-financing and distribution company Silverlining as director of acquisitions.

In the newly created role, Job will be responsible for sourcing content for Silverlining’s distribution business. She will also work with company founder Bethan Corney to broker international and domestic co-production deals and pre-sales.

Job previously oversaw A+E’s History and H2 brands across the UK and EMEA territories. In her nearly-ten year tenure, her commissions and acquisitions for A+E include Ronnie O’Sullivan’s American Hustle, Pawn Stars UK and Shaun Ryder on UFOs.

Prior to her time at A+E, Job served as head of acquisitions and marketing at London-based prodco 3DD.

“Rachel is a class act with an instinct for what rates internationally, having commissioned and co-produced hundreds of hours of programs from docudramas and formats to talent-led specials and returnable series,” said Corney, in a statement. “I’m looking forward to us growing Silverlining together and extending the range of production finance and editorial services that we offer producers.”
