His latest commercial work includes a six-spot campaign for Maltesers Buttons, a three-spot campaign for Royal Mail, a film starring Seann Walsh for The Big Issue, and a commercial for Denplan featuring Spencer Jones. He’s also directed funny commercials for Subway, Huawei, McVities, Cheerios, Philips and Comfort.

In 2017, Jim directed BBC3 comedy pilot, ‘Hailmakers’, for BBC Studios, after previously directing the BBC2 sketch shows ‘Sketchland’ and ‘What’s Funny About The Indyref?’, for BBC Comedy in Scotland.
