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.

More info and how to apply can be found here:

Applications are open until 28th May.

Don’t ignore the Workplace Pension – Disability Rights UK Seminars


The law on workplace pensions has changed. Under the Pensions Act 2012, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a pension scheme and contribute
towards it. This is called auto enrolment. It applies to all employers including employers of personal assistants.

But DON’T PANIC help is at hand!

Disability Rights UK

Disability Rights UK with support from The Pensions Regulator has organised a series of SEMINARS around England that will help answer all your questions.

Come along to a SEMINAR near you and hear directly from a representative of the Pension Regulator about how the law on workplace pensions has changed, what you need to do, and when. There will also be an opportunity for you to get answers to your questions and discuss any concerns you may have.

The SEMINARS are free to attend but numbers are limited so DON’T DELAY BOOK TODAY

For more information or to book your place, please email

All venues are accessible, however please let us know of any access needs you may have in advance.
