The CDN and Creative Skillset announce a second Commissioner Programme – the ground-breaking programme is aimed at ensuring that television content and commissioning teams better reflect modern Britain.
Backed by the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, Sky and Channel 5, the leadership programme is designed to broaden the diversity of TV commissioning by bringing in new voices and perspectives and is targeted at experienced media professionals who are enthusiastic and committed to becoming a content commissioner. Applications are particularly encouraged from under-represented groups, such as those from BAME [Black Asian or Minority Ethnic] backgrounds or those with a disability as defined under the Equality Act 2010.
Recruitment for the programme begins from this week and will be managed by the individual broadcasters. Each placement is full time and lasts for a minimum of 12 months, on a competitive senior level salary. More information will be published here soon and on the Creative Skillset website or platforms.
