At ITV I'm the rights manager for commercial affairs for ITV network and what we essentially do is acquire rights from producers such as Talkback for the X-Factor where we buy transmissions for the ITV1 and the ITV2 transmission, plus we have exploitation online, so itv.com, we have 30 day catch-up on that website so it's my responsibility to make sure that our dot com team are aware that they have those rights and then they can make that content available for viewers online. My career at ITV started in 1998, I started here on a modern apprenticeships scheme at Granada TV in Manchester, as it was called then, in the HR department, I then went from there to the casting department where I was a casting assistant on lots of different ITV dramas including Coronation Street. I then moved to business affairs, in 2007 I relocated to London and then I came to work in commercial affairs and that's how I've ended up what I'm doing now. I really enjoy working at ITV, hence being here for 13 years, it's really good for opportunities to work in different departments, the environment's great because it's a nice creative atmosphere and everyone's really friendly and approachable and I hope to be here for much longer.
