My role at ITV is head of programme strategy for ITV3, so my main responsibility is constructing the ITV3 schedule for the year, making sure it's targeted at the right audience, making changes when necessary, we keep a very close eye on the competitors so sometimes we make changes according to what the main competitors are doing, and also the rest of the ITV channels, so we work as like a family of channels, so for ITV3 to keep a close eye on what ITV1, 2 and 4 are doing and because we always want to be a complementary portfolio of channels, sometimes I need to make changes in accordance with the other ITV channels. So I came straight from university to ITV, I did a dissertation on scheduling, as you do, you know. Working at ITV is a really good environment, good experience - we have an open plan office so it's really good, you really feel like you work as a team, especially when there's a number of channels all in the office.
