I'm a finance analyst at ITV, I work within broadcast, specifically within commercial sales, which is the area responsible for basically selling advertising that you watch on TV. I help support the business by providing them with financial information on their budgets, I give them information on specific advertising should they need it and basically just help them with any finance related queries that they have as well. I'm only one part of finance in the sense that there's other finance teams dotted across ITV, so there's the finance team with in studios and there's a finance team based in Manchester as well who do all the accounts payable and account receivable function. Prior to joining ITV I didn't have any media experience, I trained at a large accountancy firm for 4 years where I did my accounting qualification and I practiced in auditing so I went out and audited different companies and then I wanted to get some experience within a business and sort of applied for different companies and thought ITV would give me the best all round experience of just being within a company.
