4Talent, Channel 4’s in-house recruitment group, has contacted the University to offer a range of opportunities for anyone interested in a career in the media. The deadlines for applications are difference for each scheme, so if you are interested do make sure to check the details carefully.
Production Training Scheme
Twelve month placement opportunities are available amongst a variety of independent production companies across the UK in cities such as Bristol, Belfast and Glasgow. There are sixteen spaces available and two streams to apply for, as either a Researcher or a 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. These are paid opportunities, and offer an entry level role for those with less than 12 months experience in production.
Applications are open until the 4th June.

Pop Ups – Apprenticeships
We will be on the road in June to talk to people about apprenticeship opportunities at Channel 4 in different departments such as Sales, HR, and IT for example. This will be a day filled with networking, workshops and opportunities to ask our current apprentices lots of questions! We will be in London on the 21st June, Manchester 29th June and Glasgow 6th July.
Applications are open until 28th May.
We run three cohorts of work experience per year, each hosting twenty individuals in different departments around Channel 4 for a week! This is a fantastic entry level opportunity to get a taster of Channel 4. We also pay all travel, lunch and accommodation costs (if necessary) to allow more people to take part!
