WHAT: On Wednesday 24th June, some of the biggest names in TV will be sharing their tips on how to make it in one of the most competitive industries in the world. How do you get a foot in the door and how do you stand out from the crowd once you have? It’s not all about lights, camera, action, either – there are all kinds of jobs you can get in and get on with too.
We’re a UK television network which includes members such as the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, ITV, MTV and Sky as well as a host of award-winning and hit programme makers. Our mission is to promote diversity in TV and we are encouraging applications from talented people who are currently under-represented in our industry, such as Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic backgrounds, those with a disability, or from disadvantaged social backgrounds. We want to show you what TV has to offer.
