My role here at ITV is diversity manager and what that means is I look at both on-screen and off-screen diversity, so making sure the programmes that we work across are reflective of the audiences that are watching and engaging and entertaining. And also off-screen is to look at our workforce, so making sure, not only at entry point, we get the best talent and that we give that talent the opportunity to influence our business and it's inclusive in their journey here at ITV. Working here at ITV is great fun, it plays to my strengths and my skills-set, my day is very varied, I get to interact with a huge amount of people across our business, it's a great place to grow, it's innovative, it's challenging, it's rewarding, it's enthusiastic, it's brilliant, and to know you work for a huge broadcaster such as ITV, not only broadcasting, but programme making and you can sit at home and know that you have a part to play in that is amazing, it's great.
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, and our next round of recruitment will take place in June 2013 for a September start.
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.
