New opportunities for disabled people at Channel 4!

I hope you are well. A quick introduction, my name is Yasmin and I am the new 4Talent Coordinator at Channel 4!

I wanted to get in touch as we have some fantastic opportunities open at the moment, and I wanted to ask if you could kindly distribute them amongst your organisation and the people you work closely with. I will put details below, but please do get in touch if you have any questions.

Production Training Scheme

 12 month placement opportunities available amongst a variety of independent production companies across the UK in cities such as Bristol, Belfast and Glasgow. There are 16 spaces available, and two streams to apply for, a Researcher and Production Coordinator. The scheme is particularly aimed at people with disabilities, from BAME communities or disadvantaged backgrounds  – because these groups are currently underrepresented in the television industry, which is something we want to change. This is a paid opportunity, and an entry level role for those with less than 12 months experience in production.

Applications are open until the 4th June.
