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.
At ITV, we’re 100 per cent behind giving young people the opportunity to earn while they learn. So modern apprenticeships are right up our street. We’ve already had a number of people successfully complete our Apprenticeship programme, and many of them have gone on to secure great roles within our business.
We support apprenticeships in Creative & Digital Media and Business & Administration.
Our schemes are 12 months long and have lots to offer, starting with a training allowance. We also make sure our apprentices get all the support and guidance they need to take their career to the next stage. And that’s all on top of gaining a nationally-recognised qualification.
If you’re interested in learning more about a modern apprenticeship, then register with the National Apprenticeship Service and keep a look-out for announcements on our official Twitter feed, @ITVCareers and here on our careers site for when applications open.
We're proud to be a ‘two-tick’ disability symbol holder, meaning we’re recognised for our support and retention of talented individuals with disabilities. This support, naturally, extends to anyone on our Apprenticeship programmes and we’ll do everything we can to make sure you have the support and adjustments you need to get the most out of your time with us.
