There are loads of myths about our industry, and sometimes they scare talented people away. People think they don’t have the right ‘look’ to work in the media. Or they think you can only get a job if you’ve already got a best mate in the business.
But that’s not true. And we’ve created this Production Training Programme to prove it. Through this scheme, you can take part in a 12-month training programme at one of the media companies that we work with. The things you learn there can help you to get ahead in this industry (no trendy hairstyle required). And you get £17,500 too.What will I be doing?
You get to work on some amazing projects, with some inspiring people, in one of the best production companies in the UK. In the past, our trainees have worked as researchers, production co-ordinators, junior developers and assistant editors. And throughout the year, you also get full-time mentoring, and training at Channel 4.
All of this can help you build a great future in our industry - one trainee ended up being a director on Hollyoaks. Not bad, eh?Which companies could I work for?
There are a huge amount of production companies out there and they are all brilliant! For example, with previous Production Training Programmes we have worked with: Dragonfly (Planecrash), Raise the Roof (Phil Spencer: Secret Agent), Twenty Twenty (My Transexual Summer), Mentorn (Katie: My Beautiful Friends) and Waddell(4.Throughts.tv) this is just to name a few!What kind of people are you looking for?
You don’t need any particular qualifications. But you do need to be ambitious. And you need to be ready to push boundaries, to challenge people’s thinking. After all, we’re looking for people who will help shape the next generation of our programming. We blazed a trail with shows like Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, The Undateables andOne Born Every Minute. What could you help create?Will you help me through it?
Sure we will. Of course, the company you work at will guide you from day to day. But if you need anything else, all you need to do is give our People Development Team a shout.
