  1. When you apply for a job internally, your initial application will be kept confidential. Only the recruiter, and in some cases your P&O Business Partner, will see that you’ve applied. (You will receive a notification if your application does not advance to the next step.)
  2. Although we do not inform your manager of your application or exploratory interview, we always encourage you to maintain an open dialogue with your manager about your interests, career aspirations, and, if appropriate, your applications. In many cases, your manager and other Sony Pictures colleagues can play a valuable part in the application, interview and internal hiring process. If you would like advice or support in having these conversations, please feel free to reach out to your P&O Business Partner.

  3. If you are selected to interview for a role, a recruiter will contact you to coordinate a time to connect. This first exploratory conversation will also be confidential. (You will receive a notification if your application does not advance to the next step.)
  4. If you advance to the next step in the interview process, you must inform your manager that you are interviewing for a new role at Sony Pictures. Your recruiter will confirm that you have done so before arranging your interview schedule.
  5. If you are offered the role, a recruiter will be in touch over the phone to discuss the offer details and guide you through the process of accepting the new position.
  6. If you accept the job offer, you will give notice to your current manager. You, your current manager and your future manager will agree on a transition timeline based on your role and market norms. If you would like support finalizing the transition timeline, please reach out to your P&O Business Partner.
  7. If you aren’t sure who your P&O Business Partner is, please reach out to for assistance.

Still have questions?

  • Can I apply for a job at Sony Pictures in another country or location?

    Yes, however you may need to have immigration permission to live or work in the country of application. If you are interested in applying for a role in another country, please speak with your P&O Business Partner to determine if this would be a viable option for you.

  • Why do I need to be in my current role for one year before applying for another opportunity?

    Sony Pictures takes great pride in its commitment to hiring top talent for every opportunity. When a manager offers you a role, they are making an investment in time and resources to train and grow you in that position. In return, they have a reasonable expectation that you will commit some time to succeeding in your role before pursuing other internal opportunities. (If you are an intern or trainee, this timing doesn’t apply to you because of the length of your assignment.)

  • I am concerned my manager will be upset with me because I am looking for a new role. What should I do?

    At Sony Pictures we believe strongly in developing career paths for our top talent. Your contributions are valuable, not only to your current team, but to the company as a whole. We encourage managers to engage in regular conversations about career development, and hope that they are always appropriately supportive of internal career ambitions. However, if you would like advice or support in having these conversations with your manager, please contact your P&O Business Partner.

  • Do I need my manager’s approval to apply for another position at Sony Pictures?

    No, you do not need your manager’s permission to apply to another position at Sony Pictures. You may apply and have one exploratory interview with a recruiter confidentially. However, if you choose to continue exploring the position thereafter, you will be required to tell your manager before you continue the interview process.

  • What if my new manager wants me to start right away? How do I navigate the transition timeline with my current manager?

    We recommend that you, your current manager and new manager agree to a transition timeline based on your role and market norms. If you need support in this process, please contact your P&O Business Partner.

  • Can I apply for multiple positions internally?

    Yes, but please only apply for positions for which you are qualified.
