What role is right for me?

  • Production co-ordinators are part of the production management team who look after the logistics of making TV – this includes budgets, transport, schedules and health and safety.Production co-ordinators work underneath Production Managers, but will also work very closely with editorial staff (producers, assistant producers, researchers) to facilitate filming requirements.A production co-ordinator will book travel and hotels for crew and contributors, organise crew visas and filming locations. They will be looking after paperwork for production, such as release forms, and compiling a call sheet - a document issued for all filming shoots containing contact details, locations and schedules.Transferable skills:

    • Organisational – do you love to create a holiday schedule or planning events or a wedding? A co-ordinator keeps a team organised!
    • Finance – Have you worked in a bank? Looked after a university committee's budget?
    • Worked in retail? Production management are in charge of budgets and as a co-ordinator you’ll be working with invoices and cost monitors.
    • Problem solving - Unfortunately, as organised as we try to be, a TV shoot may not always go to plan. So we are looking for people who can think on their feet and find a train to replace that flight that was just cancelled.
  • Runners, Production Assistants, and Production Management Assistants are all brilliant roles to get your foot in the door in the industry and have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of production.

    In these roles you will be helping the smooth running of various departments, meaning you will have the opportunity to meet and observe various parts of the production process.

    Transferable skills:

    • Communication - Have you worked in retail, customer service or hospitality? In this role no two days will be the same and you will be comfortable working with a variety of people.
    • Finance – Have you worked in a bank? Looked after a university committee's budget? You may be in charge of office admin and petty cash so managing money is a great skill.
    • Problem-solving - TV is fast-paced and can be unpredictable so being quick thinking helps. Have you organised a big event or started a podcast or other content where there were a lot of hurdles? Managed to shoot a film in lockdown?
    • Learning quickly - and more importantly, an enthusiasm for learning new skills! Did you teach yourself a new language or craft hobby during lockdown? As a central part of the office you'll be taking instructions from a variety of team members so an ability to learn new skills is a great attribute
