If you’re interested in working in TV production, if you act immediately, you can get some inside information from the BBC on their new Production Talent Pool entry scheme – tomorrow!
Sorry for the very short notice about this, but it was only confirmed yesterday afternoon (guess it reflects the kind of “keep your ear to the ground and drop everything when a chance comes up” mentality you’d need in TV production). As of posting (9.30 am, Thursday 26th Jan) there were still 17 places left – get in quick.
Here are the details:
This Friday 27 January – two lunchtime talks from the BBC at 12.00pm and 1.00pm (pick the time that suits you) in Room 5.7, Crawford House, Booth Street East, Manchester (above the Careers Service and across from the Aquatic Centre – the entrance is the one furthest away from Oxford Road)
This year the BBC launches the Production Talent Pool (PTP). The PTP will be a first step on the ladder for nearly 100 ambitious talented people who want a career in broadcast media. Successful PTP candidates are offered short-term, paid work in runner or junior production management roles across the BBC for up to 12 months.
The brightest and the best of those will be offered one of 12 places on the BBC’s prestigious Production training scheme which fast tracks individuals across 18 months to become Assistant Producer.
This session is aimed at final year students to give details of the scheme and information about how to apply.
Register here for the talk at 12 noon- 1pm, this Fri 27 Jan
Register here for the talk at 1pm – 2pm, this Fri 27 Jan.
The talk will be given by Kate Hoyland, the BBC’s Manager, Trainee and Development Schemes for the BBC Academy.
Places are limited so please sign-up asap. Registration closes at midnight on Thurs 26 Jan.
Please note, information about careers in the media is regularly posted on the University of Manchester Media Club blog
